foxit pdf reader 2 build PDF Preview Handler Error Outlook 2007 & how to Fix it!(Preview Handler)

Many must have upgraded to MS Office 2007, a totally redesigned-from-scratch Software which has turned out beautifully & Further, many in the office rely on the ever-important Outlook 2007 to take care of their E-mailing needs.

For Quite some time now I have been using outlook for E-mailing. & I extensively use the “Preview” Feature for the Documents (.Doc), Images (.JPEG / .BMP….) & Most Importantly Adobe PDF Files.

But recently I discovered a rather frustrating problem: On Single-Clicking the PDF in the received E-mail one should be taken to the Preview directly, but here it gave me a Handler Error: The Preview Handler Has encountered an Error. To view the File, Double-Click on it.

As is my tendency I am not the one to give up so easily. Hence I fired-up Google & began searching for a Suitable Alternative. I encountered ONLY ONE: Foxit PDF Preview Handler.

But I was not satisfied with just PDF. Searches later I stumbled upon THIS PAGE. It has a beautiful Preview Handler, which does Perfectly what till recently the inbuilt handler used to do.

COOL Huhh!!

If anyone can advise HOW to remove the banner displayed (It eats Screen space), this post would be truly complete.


Since Service Pack 1 has been released for MS Office 2007, Many Preview Handlers have been included by default. But Adobe’s Preview tends to be disappointing.

TIP: Install Service Pack 2 FIRST & then install the Preview Handler.
