    Can't view pdf attachments

    Hi,

    I've got Acrobat Reader 8.1 installed with Vista Home Premium.

    When I try to open a pdf email attachment from within Windows Mail I get the
    following error message:

    'This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this
    action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel.'

    I've checked the associations and pdf's should open with Acrobat Reader 8.1.

    If I save the pdf and then double click it then it will open as it should do
    in Acrobat.

    Any ideas why I can't open pdfs from within Windows Mail?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.
