    I had the same "Unable to display PDF. Click here to download" message that others reported, in IE9 on Windows 7 x64. My client reported the same. Words in Firefox 13 and Chrome 19. I switched to the Google Doc Embedder plugin, and it works in IE9.

    I liked the simplicity of Embed PDF, but couldn't use it due to this IE9 issue.

    Strange. Any idea what the difference is?

    Glad you found something that worked for you.

    I'm having the same problem.
    On my Windows 7 64bit, the page that works well in both Chrome and Firefox has some strange issues on IE9.

    The page is:
    http://ict.ing.unimo.it/telecom_lab/?page_id=85

    Actually, the strange thing is that the PDF appears, thanks to the block:
    <object width="70%" height="500" class="pdf ie" data="http://ict.ing.unimo.it/telecom_lab/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/indoor_positioning_research_activity_2012.pdf" type="application/pdf">

    but then, just below that block I see:

    <div style="width: 70%; height: 500px; ...;">
    Unable to display PDF
    Click here to download
    </div>

    which of course takes 500px away! Note that 500px is the width I used for embedding the pdf.

    I will try to debug this, if I have time. In the meanwhile, any help would be appreciated :)
