Illustrator problem. The File is damaged and could not be repaired.

When I open the ai file, I got this error message.
"The format of Acrobat PDF files encountered difficulties. The file is damaged and can not be restored."
You know what to do?

I don't know what to do. What I would try is other programs that can read PDF to see if they can do it. Acrobat, InDesign, and Photoshop, of course. BUT they probably all use the same engine so that may not help. I'd try a third party. I think Cute used to have PDF products. You might find something. I would THINK that if Adobe can't read it there's a real problem. But you never know.

Illustrator problem

Acrobat cannot open Illustrator files, it can only open those files that were actually saved as PDF files by Illustrator. Check this link:
Or also try the third-party tool - Illustrator Repair Toolbox ( )

Good luck!!!
