This file is controlled by DRM. You need more than the file, you need
the software and permission to read it. Your users need to go back to
the original source. For instance, did it come on a CD? Look for DRM
software on the CD.
here's a new wrinkle in the problem....
the users are telling me that the PDF files are documents that were SCANNED in at some point.
this means that the files are graphic images of that document. Could that documents be corrupted somehow?
> Could that documents be corrupted somehow?
Not if that message you mentioned is what appears (including The
component is Filter /FOPN_intrlnk:). This is very clear and explicit,
and does not indicate corruption.
The FOPN prefix refers to the DRM products from the company FileOpen.
If this document was certainly made in-house, then it suggests that
someone in-house was using DRM. Google searches suggest a product
called Intralinks is involved -
If your company is indeed a bank, you probably need to find the
security administrator responsible for this sort of thing.
LS Power is NOT a bank, these documents were scanned in from paper sources on a Canon scanner.
I looked at the raw PDF file with Notepad, it has the following handful of lines...
1 0 obj
that second line is crap.... most of this file is binary because the images are graphics in nature.
this can't possibly have DRM in it.
>that second line is crap....
That second line is present in almost all PDF files, as recommended by
the PDF Reference.
>this can't possibly have DRM in it.
Why do you say that?
