I have an .pdf file which doesn't opened by Acrobat Reader but it opened well by Chrome . That file looks like it converted from .ppt to .pdf format .

This is the prompt message I get in the Adobe -

enter image description here

I work with Adobe Acrobat X Version 10.1.2 .

Does it possible to open it with any Adobe yet ?

Is it only one specific PDF you're having this trouble with, or many? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Mar 31 '13 at 14:39
Only this specifuc PFD – URL87 Mar 31 '13 at 14:46
Then it's probably corrupted in a way Reader doesn't like. Get the user to make it again. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Mar 31 '13 at 14:47
Adobe Reader tries to automatically repair PDF files when it encounters a malformed one, so if it can't open the PDF then it is safe to say that it is severely corrupted. – Rowan Jun 19 '13 at 3:01

If it is only this specific PDF and not all pdfs in general - I doubt that it is acrobat at fault. If you want to, you can try updating to the latest version (11 at the time of writing)

Alternatively, try Foxit or another pdf reader to get this pdf open. Once opened, you can always print it back to a "proper" pdf using pdfcreator or similar.

Hope this helps
