    File Links in PDF getting messed up when viewed in browser

    jkosborn4

      When we put a file link in a PDF (\\servername\sharename\directory\file.doc) and display that PDF in a browser, when we click on that link, it becomes http://webname/servername/sharename/directory/file.doc which does not work at all.

       

      I have tried the current versions of Reader 8 and 9, as well as an old copy of 6.1 in browsers ID6/7/8 and Firefox 3.5.

       

      Our web unit insists that it didn't used to do this.

       

      If I change the Reader option to not open inside the web browser, then clicking on the file link works fine. It's just when Reader opens up in the browser that we have this problem.

       

      Anyone else run into this? Our folks really like Reader inside of the browser.

       

      Thanks.
