    AppleScript do script file completely broken in Acrobat 9 Pro?

      After not being able to use Acrobat 8 at all because of this issue

      http://www.adobeforums.com/webx/.59b4b95a

      I plunked down another $170 hoping the issue would be fixed in Acrobat 9.

      But with Acrobat 9 Pro (9.0.0, OS X 10.5.5), calling do script file does not seem to work at all. I've created a simple one line script:

      console.println("test 123");

      and called it like this:

      tell application "Adobe Acrobat Pro"
      do script file "Path:to:file:test.js" as alias
      end tell

      I get this error:

      92:181: execution error: Adobe Acrobat Pro got an error: Can't continue do script. (-1708)

      The console in Acrobat Pro shows:

      illegal character
      0:

      Thanks for any help or suggestions.
