We came up with the following observations.
1. When we run the above application in IE5, IE5.5 and NetScape 4.7 with Acrobat Reader 4.0. It runs perfectly without any kind of problem.
2. But when we try to run the same application with Acrobat Reader 5.0. It gives the following errors.
Case 1. With IE5 or 5.5 -- Test.pdf gets opened successfully and Process.asp is being executed. But it neither opens/executes instructions.pdf nor gives any kind of error or message. Application gets stuck at Test.pdf.
Case 2. With NetScape 4.7 -- Test.pdf gets opened successfully and process.asp is also executed. It also does not open instructions.pdf and gives the error "Form specified in the FDF was not found".
3. If we modify our Process.asp as follows.
'ServerURL="../pdfs_" & College & "/instructions.pdf"
Please note that:- Instead of relative Path(URL), we gave the absolute Path(URL).
Case 1. With IE5 or 5.5, there is no change in the execution.
Case 2. With NetScape, Now it does not give the error, and opens the specified file too, but at different location, i.e not in the same frame where we are opening the test.pdf. This is again a different kind of problem.
Case 1. It works perfectly with IE5.0, 5.5 or NetScape 4.7
Could you please provide me the work around for it? Is the problem with Acrobat Reader 5.0? or are we missing something. Any help would be highly appreciated.
Thank in advance,
