I installed the latest version of odoo 8 (All in one on Windows7)

I also installed wkhtmltopdf and managed to get it to work.

Now I am looking for a way to have the user preview the PDF report before printing withinthe browser. I downloaded "web_pdf_viewer " and installed it as that's what others recommended me to do. However, all reports stillcome out as a download.

P.S. I already downloaded the plugins for chrome and firefox and none of them work.

there really isn't much documentation on this. If anyone managed to get it to work, can you please let me know how you acheived this?

Thanks to Sajin Aziz instruction, I was able to solve the problem. 

Before you start, Uninstall web_pdf_viewer from Odoo.

1) Download Master Odoo from here: https://github.com/odoo-dev/odoo/tree/master-pdf_viewer_issue-pga
    (Look bottom right for downloading the zip file)

2) Unzip the file and look inside the addons folder for "report" and "web_pdf_viewer"

3) replace the "report" folder in your own addons directory with the "report" forlder from the addons directory you downloaded. After that go into Odoo > Settings> Local Modules and "Upgrade" the module called "Report"

4) place the "web_pdf_viewer" inside your addons directory and install it in Odoo.

That's it. 

Thanks to Sajin Aziz

any link to download the module ?
