Cant Read PDF

When I try to open a PDF in Caliber to read it, I get the following error message


Windows will try to open SMOKE MELDER.COA-22-ALECTO.original_PDF with calibri itself, resulting in a duplicate in your caliber library. You will need to install a program that can view this file format and instruct Windows to use that program to view the files from to open this type

what can I do to solve this problem

Exactly what the error message tells you to do. You need to associate the original_PDF extension with a PDF viewer.

If I understand you correctly, you are trying to open an ".original_PDF" file format. Wherever it comes from, it is not formally a PDF, hence the error message.

Copy it somewhere, rename it to ".PDF" and reimport it into Calibre.

Edit: or OBC's way
