Topic: PdfLib error

I'm making a form that grabs info from a DB and the user and then compiles it together into a PDF form that can be printed out in the last step. The process has worked for a while until one machine had problems.

ideally the pdf would be displayed into the browser window, but in this case i get a blank screen (on all other machines i've tested it works fine).

If instead of writing the pdf into the browser window i use "Content-Disposition attachment; filename=xyz.pdf" thus producing a save/open dialog box, then i have more trouble. if I open it i get this error: "There was an error opening this document. This file cannot be found." If i save it then open it everything is perfect and works!

This happens with other forms that i've made with PdfLib.

are there any ideas what might cause this? It seems to be a problem with the single machine (now running acrobat reader 6.0) rather than with the system as a whole.
