Topic: Cannot open a PDF I secured with FileOpen PP
Conf: (P-PDF) What's Wrong with my PDF?, Msg: 145495

I know this sounds stupid, but I created a PDF document about 3 years ago and secured it for distribution to a customer using FileOpen Personal Publisher. Unfortunately I cannot find the unencrypted original and can no longer use FOPP due to withdrawal of FileOpen's support for this product.

I have called and e-mailed FileOpen with the file and given them my information so that they can verify that I indeed had a license and asked if they would they please unencrypt it as a customer has recently expressed interest in the content and I have a meeting planned in two days.

Unfortunately this time frame is not long enough for me to reproduce the original content!

Can or will anyone please assist me in unlocking this file?
I can verify my authoring / ownership of the content if need be.
