File does not begin with %PDF.

Product Name: Acrobat Reader DC
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)
It is a long time since I have used Adobe but now I don't appear to be able to do anything. I have a tree files as a PDF format. I cannot open them because the following error: File does not begin with %PDF.
(I tried Acrobat Reader DC but that appears to be a professional users software and requires a subscription to use it).
Anyone else seen this error?

Thanks.

Re: File does not begin with %PDF.

Hi,

 

You have use the registry editing tool to make the suggested changes. If you are using Windows OS, Windows Key -> Run -> Enter "regedit". This will open the registry editing tool. You can then search for the registry entry mentioned above and make the changes. For more detailed information,see here http://www.erepairpdf.com/

 

Hope it helps. Regards
