In Windows, i'm happy with Google Chrome's built-in PDF Reader plugin. Even, i use it as default PDF reader for Windows.

But for some PDF's, Chrome always prompts like "Parts of this PDF document could not be displayed. Install Adobe Reader?". I don't want to use Adobe Reader (or Adobe's PDF plugin) and i don't want to be annoyed everytime i open a PDF.

So, is there a way to stop these prompts? Under the hood setting or command line switch etc.?

You won't be able to get rid of the warning. Just dismiss it when its displayed. –  Ramhound Aug 3 '12 at 13:12

Based on some extensive searching, I believe that you can't get rid of the warning. I agree that it is annoying. The best that you can do is disable Chrome's built-in PDF viewer and use a different one.

Try to disable Chrome PDF Viewer going to about:plugins. Then you can install official Adobe plugin that does the same function with full PDF support.

I don't want to use any Adobe thing. I'm happy with Chrome's PDF plugin except the prompt. –  Berk Demirkır Aug 3 '12 at 13:06
