Topic: Problem with FDF on Mac
Conf: (P-PDF) Mac Issues, Msg: 95334

I have an ASP page that populates a PDF with data from our database using Acrobat FDF Toolkit - Version 5. It works fine on Windows systems but Mac users are having problems. In one specific case, the Mac has OS 10, IE 5.2, and Acrobat reader 5.0. When the user clicks the link to the ASP page, it opens the Download Manager, downloads the ASP page to the desktop, and opens the "Apple System Profiler". Acrobat never loads. Apparently, files with the .ASP extension are "Apple System Profiler" files. Has anybody seen anything like this? Below are the relevant lines of code from the ASP page:

Dim FdfAcX, outputFDF
Set FdfAcX = Server.CreateObject("FdfApp.FdfApp")
Set outputFDF = FdfAcX.FDFCreate
outputFDF.FDFSetValue "LName", rsAppBr("BrLName"), False
outputFDF.FDFSetFile ""
outputFDF.FDFSetTargetFrame "_blank"
Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.fdf"
Response.BinaryWrite outputFDF.FDFSaveToBuf

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
