Topic: Launch Message When Hyperlinked to a File on Unix
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 54511

Am having a problem when I run a .pdf file through the Adobe reader, when I try to hyperlink to a ASCII text file on a Unix platform. It keeps coming up with an information message box telling me it is about to launch the file I told it to hyperlink to. When I click Yes, it launches the file just like it should but when I close the link the next time I get the same message. If I click on the ALL option, it launches just like it should and never posts the message again as long as your Adobe reader session is active. Once you close Adobe and relaunch, the same thing happens. Seems like it's some preference, but can't find any documentation to tell me what to set so I don't get the information box but automatically launches the file. Can someone help??? Thanks
