| Configuring Internet Explorer for Mac OS to Display PDF Files |
If you have an Adobe Acrobat 3.0x viewer installed, you can display PDF files within Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.x or 4.x using the Acrobat PDFViewer plug-in or using an Acrobat viewer as a helper application. When you use the PDFViewer plug-in, Internet Explorer displays PDF files within its browser window; when you configure Internet Explorer to use Acrobat as a helper application, PDF files are displayed within your Acrobat viewer window. If you have an Acrobat 4.0 viewer installed, you should use the Acrobat viewer as a helper application to view PDF files in Internet Explorer.
Using the PDFViewer Plug-In with an Acrobat 3.0x Viewer
The PDFViewer plug-in is included with Acrobat Reader 3.0x and Acrobat Exchange 3.0x. If you select a PDF file while the PDFViewer plug-in is installed, the file will download to Internet Explorer's Temp folder, and then Internet Explorer uses your Acrobat viewer to display the file within its browser window.
To install the PDFViewer plug-in, move the PDFViewer file from the Acrobat 3.0x:Web Browser Plug-in folder into the Internet Explorer:Plug-ins folder.
Note: Before you can use the plug-in, you also need to make sure that Acrobat is deselected as a helper application in Internet Explorer. To deselect Acrobat as a helper application in Internet Explorer 3.x:
