CH> Hi,

CH> I want to start writing my thesis with pdflatex and found that if I open
CH> the output pdf file with Acrobat Reader under windows, I can not compile
CH> my latex file again, since the Acrobat Reader keeps the pdf file open and
CH> does not allow it to be rewritten.

CH> Is there a way around this problem?

one is:
alt-tab C-W alt-tab  pdflatex

another one is:
pdfopen %f.pdf & pdfclose %f.pdf & pdflatex %f.tex
