How to use PDF-XChange Viewer with Editor IE plugin

Tue Jul 26, 2016 12:55 pm

Hi

I have Windows 10 64bit with PDF-Xchange Pro 6.0.317.1.
I installed PDF-Xchange Viewer 2.5.317.1 and used the Pro license.

I want to use PDF-XChange Viewer as default viewer. Specially in Internet Explorer, since it is used with web application that must not have PDF editing capabilities by default.

PDF's do not open in viewer in IE, only in editor. After altering the "display in browser" settings, IE plugin gets broken and IE only shows open/save dialog when opening PDF links.

How to configure plugin/browser/viewer to view pdf's with viewer in IE?

Hello Jukka,

Welcome to the forum.

I am not sure I understand what you would like to do.
Could you please specify if you would like to use the Viewer from within IE or the Editor?

Please note that the Viewer is no longer developed. This product has been replaced by the Editor.

Regards,
Radi

Hello

I'm trying to use the viewer within IE. Although Editor could be also used, if there aren't any editing features present in IE, but I don't believe it is possible.

IE plugin always opens editor, not viewer. And when trying to configure it, plugin gets broken and neither one opens pdf's within browser. Instead, I get open/save dialog.

Hi Jukka,

the first thing I would be doing, since you stated it is important to use the Viewer and not the Editor, is to remove the editor from the system so it's not an option. You should then find configuring the viewer is as simple as setting the file associations from within the viewer to activate the browser plugins.

I should point out however, as Radi mentioned, the viewer is no longer actively being developed and support for it includes only existing features.
