It sounds like MISE is not completely downloading the file, but IE7 is.
Ok, any solutions to get IE6 to play nice?
We've just found that Adobe Reader 6 (not 7, 8, or 9) fixes this problem.
Again, though, not an acceptable solution.
Also, loading the page with IE inside of Firefox with the "IE Tab" addon for Firefox works.
Again, not acceptable!
Anyone have a solution?
We also sometimes get:
"Expected a dict object"
This post, and it's comments, sort of point at what's going on: http://www.hyperborea.org/journal/archives/2005/10/24/fdf-errors/
However, none of those pdf's actually have any form elements to them.
Anyone got a work around for this? I have the same problem here. But upgrading to IE7 sorts out this problem.
We made some server changes (updating our load balancer and apache), and the problem seems to have fixed itself!
And yes, IE7 always fixed the problem, but upgrading everyone frome IE6 to IE7 isn't an option.
Can you please tell me what sort of update you have done on Apache? Is it a version update or any other change. Please let me know the version that you are on now.
Sorry, it's not IE6 alone. We have IE7 here and we get intermittent errors as well. The version of Reader or Acrobat also does not fix it.
What solved it for me at the USGS just now was to do the following:
1)IE browser, Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>Security>Empty temp internet files at close=YES
2)IE browser, Tools>Internet Options>General>BrowsingHistory-Settings>Set disk cache to max allowed.
I figured that I may be hitting the max cache with these big pdf files, and there's no message to close my browser OR clear cache when it's maxxed out. It makes the file seem at fault.
This is also why downloading works, because you're outside of the browser cache overflow situation.
You want something, go get something.
I'm telling you the best solution ever according to me as I'm using it.
Check it. It will be helpful...............
There is really no need to resurrect four year old topics!
Unless one wants to sell something? I'm not saying that such is the case, but it is a possibility.
My SEO spidey sense is tingling.
Evidently this posters excitement started here http://forums.adobe.com/message/4376037#4376037 but amazingly enough, the poster they got the link from seems to be well versed in marketspeak. Then this persons next three posts are all old threads brought back from the dead.
Thinking they're just trying to inject links. Unfotunately for them links from this forum (and most others) are nofollowed so they don't help their website rank whatsoever.
Actually this is not a reply to Melanie but a tentative to start again from where some users faced troubles with damaged files.
I tried and retried.
However, I had no issue when opening it and downloading it on my ipad.
So I then copied it from my ipad to my PC but could not open it: same message.
I checked my Adbe Reader version: 7.0.9. No update available.
I tried to open other pdf files (on my PC) and it works, no issue to open them.
But THAT ONE, no, no way to read it.
Now because I can read it on ipad why making a fuss you will tell me?
Because I need to print it and can only do it from my PC.
