Error message "File does not begin with %PDF-."

  • Disable the "Display PDF in Browser" option in your reader software:
    - Use Start - Programs - Adobe Reader to run the program directly (instead of running Reader as an embedded function within the web browser).
    - Pull down the Edit menu of the Reader and choose Preferences.
    - In the Internet settings page, de-select (uncheck) the "Display PDF in Browser" option.
  • Use the "Save Target As" option to save the pdf to your computer's hard disk drive:
    Is this a PDF file you viewed in Microsoft Internet Explorer? If so, I'll bet you used SAVE AS to save a copy of the file. Only, for reasons best known to Microsoft, it does NOT save a copy. It saves something useless instead. To save a PDF file in Internet Explorer, look at the page with the link: pop-up window with big brown button DOWNLOAD (before or after viewing the PDF). RIGHT click on the link. A menu will appear; select SAVE TARGET AS. On the Mac, press and hold the mouse instead of right clicking.
  • In Mozilla Firefox, disable the Adobe Acrobat plugin (Adobe PDF plug-in for Firefox and Netscape), and PDF download will be fine
