PDF Attachment Doesn't Open In Web Browser
Last edited: 17 Mar 2004
The information in this article applies to product:
e-Work 6.x Issue When trying to open a PDF document attached to an e-Work form, the web browser never displays the PDF. This will occur if Adobe Reader is not installed on the server running the e-Work web extensions (web server), and the client machine has the Adobe Reader 'Preferences' set to open PDFs in a web browser. Resolution Install Adobe Reader on the server running the e-Work web extensions (web server).
OR Make a registry change on the server running the e-Work web extensions (web server) as follows: In HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.pdf, create a String with value "Content Type" and set the data value to "application/pdf". Or make a .reg file with the following 2 lines and double-click, or right-click and select "Merge".
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.pdf] "Content Type"="application/pdf"
