Having issues with your PDF previews working with Microsoft Outlook or Just download the Adobe Reader preview handler x64 fixer by Leo. Open Adobe Reader -> Go to Edit menu -> Preferences -> Click Internet -> then Internet Settings -> Click LAN Settings -> Uncheck the box.

This second area will exist if Adobe Reader was installed on Windows Vista. That includes Vista machines which were later upgraded to Windows 7. I think it's due to changes in the way bit registry redirection works in Windows 7.

If you have both values you need to change both; if you only have one you only need to change that one.

PDF Preview Handler in Outlook and Windows Explorer doesn't preview PDF files

If you are using bit Office beta then the second area without the WowNode must exist for the preview handler to work. Or just use the automated tool above as it will do this for you. This extra step is not required for the retail RTM version of Office ; only for the beta. Uninstalling preview handlers does not always put back the previous ones; instead, do a repair install or a re-install of the preview handler you wish to use so that it takes over the PDF preview handler registration.

You can also do this by editing the PDF file-type in the registry. The tool above takes care of this and all the other issues so use that if you get stuck. The thumbnail bridge also trims the white border which Adobe Reader places around the thumbs it generates, making them look a lot better. As a result, even bit users may wish to install it.

If you find that your thumbnails still do not work after installing the thumbnail bridge, do a Repair install of Adobe Reader to ensure its thumbnail generator is correctly installed.

The thumbnail bridge acts as a translator between the and bit worlds and does not actually generate the thumbnails itself; it still relies on Adobe Reader to do that. See the Thanks section History of the thumbnail fix: v1. This hopefully fixes yet another problem in Adobe's thumbnailer which caused PDF thumbnails for files in a folder to get jumbled up.

You should clear your thumbnail cache, too. This was due to a bug in the Windows shell that I had to work around. Hey, Adobe In particular, it swallows tab key presses when it has focus, breaking tab cycling in the host application.

When the PDF preview handler has the focus it draws an ugly dotted-line border around its toolbar at the bottom. It looks like it thinks it's in ActiveX design mode or something.

Zoomed-in screenshot. Not a bug but it'd be nice if it had a simple text-search feature, please. Well done for releasing Adobe Reader X in a state where the preview handler's mousewheel and scrollbar do not work properly. Outstanding work, as always! Directory Opus uses my bundled plugin as a bridge for various third-party viewers, including Adobe Reader if it's installed.

I made earlier versions use the full Adobe Reader by default. I had to write a tobit ActiveX proxy process to make the Adobe Reader and Flash viewers work within bit Opus.

A lot of effort due to Adobe being so lax at producing bit components. Adobe Reader was originally used instead of the preview handler because of various issues with the preview handler. Then Windows 7 came out and Adobe Reader embedding was completely broken. That could be Microsoft's fault but my bet is it's Adobe's. So I worked around the preview handler issues, including the main one this page is about, and that is now the default in Opus. I wish I could bill Adobe for my time fixing their mess.

The ridiculous thing is that whenever we've tried to officially inform Adobe of bugs in their code like blindly calling through a null pointer after a failed QueryInterface , bugs which we've found and worked around for ourselves but which may cause problems for other people, they've asked us to pay them for a support contract.

Who is supporting whom here, exactly? And yet, I keep giving them so much money. What is wrong with that company? Okay, they didn't write iTunes or Lotus Notes, but they're getting close Personally, I find Adobe's font rendering easier to read , despite my other complaints. Thank you: Writing of the thumbnail fix was funded by someone who wishes to remain anonymous but still deserves thanks, not least of which for allowing the fix to be given away for free to everyone else.

The post and discussion about the original version of this fix at Ed Bott's Windows Expertise unearthed further useful information and caveats on different Windows installs. That information has been incorporated into the fix tool and this page. Credit to Ed and the commenters on his blog for their help.
