I have a graphical application that relies heavily on the ability to click on a graphical symbol and follow a link to another pdf file. In adobe reader 9, this no longer works. When I hover over the graphical symbol, the path shows in the yellow baloon, but when I click, it pops up a security warning message box asking if I really want to follow the link. When I click yes, the box goes away, but the link is not followed. I remain in the original pdf document.
This is running under win XP pro and runs inside MS Internet Explorer. I have used this application for 2 years without problem, and now it doesn't work anymore because someone thought I needed protecting from myself. :-(
I have wasted huge numbers of hours fiddling with the various security options, which is a major pain, because I have to exit EI and run reader manually to get access to the security prefernces menus. So I run IE, it doesn't work, I exit IE and run reader by itself. I fiddle with settings. I exit reader. I run IE. It still doesn't work. I am extremely frustrated, because it is a security risk for me to downgrade back a version of reader that works, but the present version is no better than a brick for doing what I need.
Can anybody help me set up all the preferences so that I can follow a simple link in a pdf file to another pdf file. All the files are on my own computer. I am not even going out over the network at all.
GRRRRRRRR!!!!! AAAAARRRRGGGGHHHH !!!!!!!
