Default Can't download a form - please help

Generic Application Form for Canada [IMM� 0008] (PDF,� 495.67� KB)

When I click to open and download this form an error message appears telling me to download the latest version of Adobe, which I have done, and it still does not work. Is there any other way to get this form before I toss the laptop out the window?

Thanks

It's a common problem. Despite you having the latest Adobe reader, it isn't recognised; you just need to uninstall the Adobe Reader version you have and reinstall and the file will open. You also need to turn Javascript on.

I'm not sure you can use an email version as it has to be validated.

IMM 0008 form:

Click the “Validate” button at the top or bottom of the form.

Note: Validate the form before printing it. That will help you make sure that you have answered all the questions. This will help you to avoid delays in processing your application.
A last page with barcodes and a signature line will automatically be created.
Print, sign and date the form.
For best results:
print on white, bond-quality, non-glossy paper and
use a laser printer.
Place the barcode page on top of your package. If you have more than one package, place a separate barcode page on each one.

Might also just try using a different browser, I remember having that application ages ago when we applied (2011). Would fail in IE but work fine in Chrome and vice versa.

There is a much simpler solution. Open Adobe and then open the file from within there. Providing you have the newest version of Adobe that will work every time.

I had the same problem and was also close to chucking the laptop out of the window as well!

Help! Really, help because I am just as close to throwing my PC out of the window! I have tried all of the things above - I have Javascript on both Windows Edge AND Chrome, I have uninstalled and reinstalled, still nothing!

I'm not sure how you can open Adobe first without saving a form first, which I can't do, so if anyone has any suggestions before I totally give up, please let me know a.s.a.p.!

Thanks!

Open the Adobe shortcut on your desktop and you can then open the file you need from within there.
