Topic: ASP Web App problem in presenting PDF in browser window
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 131460

Hi All,

I have an ASP application that loads data into a PDF via the FDF Toolkit. During development, everything was working fine when using Acrobat 7 Pro to view the files in the browser.

One of our clients uses Win98/IE 5/ Acrobat Reader 5 and was not able to load the PDF in to the browser window. The PDF would download and then the reader would attempt to open the file, resulting in a 'Can not open file' error.

I downloaded Acrobat Reader 7 and installed in on the development machine and when run thru FireFox, the file in the temp cache comes back with an error, saying that the file named

print_pdf.asp-1.fdf was corrupted or damaged.

The question is, how can I fix this? My guess is that I need to provide an new name to the temp file to make it read something.pdf to allow the browser to open the file. How would I do that...
