Topic: Error in Opening pdf file using AcroExch.AVDoc
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 53133
From: bijo

I am developing an ASP application, which requires me to open a PDF file, stored in a directory. I am using IAC for this purpose. However, the open method’s path argument is giving me trouble. I am using a local server for testing purpose. My site address is http://mum-ho-029/eoffice and pdf file is stored in Images directory.

@ LANGUAGE = VBScript%
Response.Buffer =true
dim bOK

'Create the object and open the sample PDF file.
Set AcroExchAVDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.AVDoc")

bOK = AcroExchAVDoc.Open("http://mum-ho-029/eoffice/images/FormsOLE1.pdf", "")

'If everything was OK opening the PDF, you can now instantiate the Forms
'Automation object.
If (bOK) Then
Set AFormAut = CreateObject("AFormAut.App")
Set Fields = AFormAut.Fields
End If

Set Field = Fields.Add("Name", "text", 0, 100, 650, 450, 675)

'This section converts a AVDoc to a PDDoc. Then we use PDDoc.Save to
'save the PDF since there isn't a viewer level method to save an AVDoc.
Set AcroExchPDDoc = AcroExchAVDoc.GetPDDoc

bOK = AcroExchPDDoc.Save(1,"http://mum-ho-029/eoffice/images/FormsOLE1.pdf" )

AcroExchAVDoc.close ( true)

set AcroExchPDDoc =nothing
set AcroExchAVDoc=nothing
set AFormAut = nothing
Response.Write "done"

When I specify path as “C:\test\ FormsOLE1.pdf “ or
"c:\inetpub\wwwroot\eoffice\images\FormsOLE1.pdf" the asp page is working properly.
Can anybody help me out ??

Also I noticed that I have to restart the server after the occurrence of this error. Even changing the path will not help.
