    Javascript popup link not working


      I've searched everywhere so trying to post here to see if anyone has encountered this.  I have a javascript popup link in a PDF.  Using Reader 9 and IE8.  When I click the link it asks me if I want to allow or not.  When I say allow, I then get an IE error that reads:


      Internet Explorer cannot download file  .

      Unspecified Error


      I've noticed that if I already have IE running, then the link works.  But if I don't have an IE window open I get the error.  The link looks like this:


      javascript:void(window.open('http://servername/appname/apppage.aspx?id=2','_blank','width=700,height=500,tool bar=0,scrollbars=0,location=0,statusbar=0,menubar=0,resizable=0'))


      This link has to be a javascript window.open based on how it is generated.  The PDF is generated by SQL reporting services and the online version of the report needs to launch a new window for this application - the PDF is created directly from the online version of the report.
