Topic: Relative hyperlink not working anymore with 6.0
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 107336

I have just installed Adobe Reader 6.0.1 and the hyperlinks are contained in my PDF reports don't work any longer. (they worked with Reader 5.0)

The hyperlinks are defined as relatiave paths and do not include the hostname such as:
"/website/webfiles/reports/MyReport_pdf.rdf"

cgi script knows what server it is running this on. However, for some reason Adobe Read 6.0.1 insists on placing and HTTP:// in front of this path, making it invalid:

"HTTP:///website/webfiles/reports/MyReport.rdf"

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
