Error message on opening Winedt

Postby kgorahava » Thu Dec 08, 2011 12:22 am

Hi,

I just installed Winedt 5.5 and whenever I open it, it automatically opens a file called "Acrobat OpenDoc.edt" and it there are 126 lines of code in that file and it highlights the line number 106 that says, DDEOpen('%$("AcroRead")',"acroview","control",0);

When I create a DVI file by executing the code, it does so successfully but also a pop up window comes up, with the heading, "Warning" and it says,

Cannot Open DDE link to:
"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Readder\AcroRd32.exe"
Service: acroview
Topic: control
DDEOpen('%$("AcroRead")',"acroview","control", 0);


And I have to press OK to close that window.

Is there a problem in my acrobat reader installation or in my Winedt installation ?

Please help me as I am using Winedt for the first time.

Thanks,
Kaushik.

Hi!

You just need to change "acroview" in the following line to "acroviewR10" or "acroviewA10":

// DDE: Required for Adobe 8!
DDEOpen('%$("AcroRead")',"acroview","control",0);


If it does not work, then probably you are using Acrobat 11 or another version. Thus, just change "10" to "11" and it will definitely work out.

You may try changing the line

DDEOpen('%$("AcroRead")',"acroview","control");

to

DDEOpen('%$("AcroRead")',"acroviewR10","control");

or

DDEOpen('%$("AcroRead")',"acroviewR11","control");

as the case may be.
