(solved) I am facing some problem with viewing the PDF. I am using TeXnicCenter on windows.

How can I direct Adobe Reader 10.1 so that it opens at the place where the file was last edited?

This is my setup: (but this does not do what I want...)

I tried with Sumatra, it says command cannot be execute... Foxit does not close before opening....

Path

\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe

View output:

[DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][FileOpen("%bm.pdf")]
AcroViewR10  control

Forward Search

[DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][FileOpen("%bm.pdf")]
AcroViewR10  control

Close:

[DocClose("%bm.pdf")]
AcroViewR10  control

I want to achieve:

  1. The viewer should close before opening... (so that I do not have to close before compile)
  2. Should open at the place where I am currently editing...

If you are willing to reply, please kindly try to reply only if you know it works/worked for you.

    Search technology does not work with Adobe Reader, and it's never likely to (the market for TeX users is too small for Adobe to worry about). You are better asking focussed questions on getting Sumatra to work, or choosing an editor with a build-in PDF view, such as TeXworks. – Joseph Wright Dec 20 '11 at 15:26
  • @Torbjørn T, Thanks. I have tried the example with Sumatra, It says can not execute command [ForwardSearch("%bm.pdf","%Wc",%l,0,0,0)] ... – Droid-Bird Dec 20 '11 at 16:54
  • Just now I added, [Open("%bm.pdf",0,1,1)][ForwardSearch("%bm.pdf","%Wc",%l,0,0,1)] Now..there is no error, and forward search does not work. No luck. – Droid-Bird Dec 20 '11 at 17:02
  • Old bug report for Sumtra about this: code.google.com/p/sumatrapdf/issues/detail?id=515 Do you have the latest version of Sumatra? – Torbjørn T. Dec 20 '11 at 17:27

Also, the error given by Sumatra appeared in earlier versions, updating Sumatra may help.
