Default Insert PDF only showing Icon (not using Adobe Reader)

Hi All,



Simply - I am trying to insert the first page of a PDF into a word document.

To do this, I go to Insert/Object/Create from File, select my PDF and everything worked fine. First page displayed and I was able to resize it, just like any object on the page. My PDF reader was Adobe Reader 11.

Problem! For various reasons, I had to uninstall Adobe Reader 11, and installed a different PDF reader called FOXIT. Now the steps above Insert/Object/Create from File will only result in the icon being displayed in MS Word (a Foxit PDF icon). If I double click the Icon, the PDF opens in Foxit.

Its as if MS Word only recognizes Adobe Reader. Has anyone else seen this, or is there a workaround (or VBA solution). I am using Office 2010, 32 bit on Win 7...

So in summary, has anyone inserted the first page of a PDF into MS Word when Adobe is not the default reader.

Thanks
W0rdNoob
