Many virtual lab manuals do not load in Adobe RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I click on the lab manuals for

    MSDN Virtual Lab Developing ASP.NET Dynamic Data


    MSDN Virtual Lab: Introduction to ASP.NET MVC

    the link appears to download the manual but when Adobe attempts to open it, it generates a "The file is damaged and could not be repaired" error.  I am using the latest version of Adobe.  Are the files actually damaged?  Could someone fix them?

    Thank you

  • I have answered my own question.  I did some research and according to a site I found from Google if you have a previous version of Adobe Reader than files created for Adobe 9.* will generate the error I mentioned in the previous post.  Microsoft should indicate which version of Adobe Reader the lab manuals require.  I had Adobe 8.* which is not too anticuated.  Then again Adobe Reader should generate a more user friendly and less misleading error message.
