There have been some recent issues with opening Adobe PDF documents due to updates released by Adobe for their Professional and Reader products. The error "The file you are downloading cannot be opened by the default program. It is either corrupted or it has an incorrect file type." is due to improper file associations, and can be fixed by following our instructions linked here.

The error "There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired." requires that the Adobe Reader be updated and can be done so by clicking the Adobe Reader image below.
