I am working on a plugin that is to run in a browser. Is there a list of methods approved for use in external windows anywhere?

The plugin saves the current file to a temporary location, which works fine, but then it is crashing acrobat when I close the browser. To be more specific, it crashes before the PluginUnload is called, and after all the documents are closed. I am pretty sure that my PDDocSave call is what is causing problems, but then why does it work until I try to quit?

Here is my code for saving the file:

ASAtom pType = ASAtomFromString("Cstring");

dPathName= ASFileSysCreatePathName( ASGetDefaultFileSys (), pType, "C:\\Temp.pdf", 0);

PDDocSave( dpddoc, PDSaveFull, dPathName, ASGetDefaultFileSys (), NULL, NULL);

PDDocClose ( dpddoc);

ASFileSysReleasePath( ASGetDefaultFileSys (), dPathName);

ASfree (&pType);

Any help would be great. Thanks,
