Default Problems loading Generic Application FormIMM 0008

Has anyone had a problem recently opening Generic Application Form for Canada (IMM 0008)

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pdf/kit...0008ENU_2D.pdf

I have downloaded the latest version of adobe reader as suggested, but still can not open the form.

I was able to view the form prior to the recent changes made on 7 December 2016.

Your help would be appreciated, as I am just starting on the process to move to Canada.

Best Regards,
Mark

Forms open fine for me in version 2015.020.20042, right-clicked & downloaded the IMM008 you linked to.

Are you sure you're opening them in Adobe Reader (and not downloading them, and your computer automatically trying to open them in the browser, which can be a more basic version built-in)?

Tried with Adobe Reader DC which is the latest version of Adobe reader.

I usually have to download the forms to my laptop, then make sure I am opening the downloaded version and be careful that I am not (as Vulcanoid warns) actually still trying to open the browser version (as it doesn't work).

Separate issue if you're using a MAC: you won't be able to see the barcodes when you validate with Adobe DC reader. So I run two versions of Adobe on my MAC: the DC version and then I use an earlier version to validate forms.

Uninstalling Adobe Reader and reinstalling has always worked for me.

1, Found the simplest solution. When the form opens, top right corner in browser, click on "open with different viewer" click on Adobe reader DC and bobs your uncle.

Yes that works if using Firefox and it's great but I don't think you get that option using e.g. Chrome. So I download to the computer then open the download via the computer.
