Im trying to figure out what permission I am missing to get this to work.

Adobe Reader 9.0 allows PDFs to be viewed within an Internet Explorer 8 browsing window. This works perfectly if I sign on to a users PC with my domain admin account. However when the user himself logs in, Adobe will not load the PDF.

I get an error that "Navigation to this page has been cancelled"

Ive compared all the IE settings and permissions I can think of and they all match.

I'm stuck....?

If you log in as a new non-admin user, does it work as expected? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jun 10 '13 at 23:22
The only users that can use that feature are admins. – ProfessionalAmateur Jun 11 '13 at 14:22
So all non-admin users don't have Reader embedded in IE, but all admins do? Have you checked the "Display PDF files in my browser" Reader setting for the affected user(s)? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jun 11 '13 at 15:59
Yeah the 'Display PDFs files in Browser` is checked. I've unchecked and rechecked for the user too and no luck. In going to uninstall Reader9.0 and reinstall Reader8.0 to see if that may fix it. – ProfessionalAmateur Jun 11 '13 at 16:07

Deleted the user's Windows profile.

All is good in the world again.
