I have uninstalled and reinstalled the free Reader but am still unable to open a PDF from a fiancial advisor...I keep getting this error message, and none of these links have been helpful...just rabbit holes...:

Please wait...

Hey there,

 

Sorry to hear about your frustrating experience. I believe you are getting "Please Wait...." message upon opening PDF file?

 

If you are getting this message while viewing a pdf in a browser, you are most likely trying to open a Dynamic XFA (XML Form Architecture) PDF. To view such pdf documents, we recommend you to download the file locally and open it either in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.

 

This document will explain the reason for getting this error: https://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-8651 

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks,

Akanchha
