    How to display HTML response file in user's browser following submission of Livecycle form

    agreenadobescreenname Level 1

      I have a PDF form created via Livecycle that does a HTTP submit to the webserver. The server returns a HTML 'submission receipt' page which is either opened in Acrobat or the user's web browser.


      Previously this process worked fine when submitting from adobe reader - the html receipt file would always automatically open OK in the user's browser. However, with newer versions of Reader (11.0.0+) I now get this error and no attempt to open the user's web browser:


      An error occurred during the submit process. Cannot process content of type text/html


      I realise why I get the error - Adobe reader can't display HTML files.


      What I don't understand is why it doesn't open the html file in the user's browser like it has been doing for years.


      Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this (without changing the response content type to PDF/FDF)?
