Applies only if Adobe Reader 6.0 or newer installed

Adobe Reader 6.0 or newer unable to open password protected PDF documents

Problem: You are unable to read .pdf files when selecting the link from within the LinguaLinks Library because Adobe Reader asks for a password. The most likely reason is that Adobe Reader 6.0 or newer is installed and the Library was designed to function with Acrobat Reader 5.0.

Solution: Copy a new version of PDFPas.exe to the C:\LingLink folder on your hard drive.


  1. Click the link to copy PDFPas60.exe to your hard drive.
  2. When the File Download dialog opens, click Save.
  3. When the Save as dialog opens, navigate to your C:\LingLink folder.
  4. In the File Name box, rename PDFPas60.exe to PDFPas.exe.
  5. Click Yes to replace the existing PDFPas file.
