Linked PDFs do not open in AIR help window

I am creating a help system in RoboHelp 10 and outputting it as AIR help. The help topics include links to several PDF documents, which are stored locally (they are not on a server or Web site). When I click any of the links in the AIR help window, however, the window goes blank; the content from the PDF does not appear. No other windows open, either. How can I get the content from the linked PDFs to appear in the AIR help window? Thanks!

Have you tried including the PDFs in Baggage Files?
I'm not sure that is necessary without testing but it's worth a try. Post back to let us know whether or not that works.

  • Link List Explorer NOT Opening In A New Window

    Hi All,
    I am trying to force my KM linklist links to open in a new window and this is proving to be a hard feat!
    I have navigated to System Admin --> System Config --> Knowledge Management --> Content Management --> Configuration --> Content Management --> User Interface --> Settings --> Resource Renderer Settings --> Link List Resource Renderer.
    Within this area, I have changed the Target Window Type to "blank" and "fixed" amongst other options but it is not opening the new links in a blank window.
    Instead, it opens the KM folder in a new window and when I click on a link within that folder, it opens in a new portal window complete with Portal framework.
    All I want is for my links to open in a new blank window with no Portal framework.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Bim.

    Hi,
    It's known bug. this issue fixed in 11.1.1.7.0 (coming soon).
    bug 13852263 - ACTION LINKS - NAVIGATION TO BI REPORTS DOESN'T WORK ( OPEN IN NEW WINDOW)
    for now : to uncheck the "Open in New Window" checkbox and go to the detail report in the same Window.
    Note: this bug has been fixed by applying the patch 14003822 (u need to get the latest patch)
    Thanks

  • Example is not opened from detailed help window

    I tried to open an example related the "Case Structure" in the "Detailed Help" window but it didn't work (I clicked on the "Open example" in the "Detailed Help" window.  Of course I  could open the examples database under "Help" but it will take time to find a specific example.  Thanks.

    Have you checked the list of services? This question has been asked before. When LabVIEW gets installed there's like a thousand services that also get installed. I don't recall which service is needed in order to open the examples. Most start with "National Instruments". In earlier versions it was the NI Service Locator that was needed. Another thing to check is to see if the service are being blocked by your firewall. That's another common reason.

  • Blank error message with ? appears and PDF does not open in Browser (IE11) when clicking link to open pdf. PC - IE11 Acrobat 9.0

    Blank error message with ? appears and PDF does not open in Browser (IE11) when clicking link to open pdf. PC - IE11 Acrobat 9.0
    Cannot access in browser PDF files unless blank box is closed and then website address is clicked on again in browser address bar and page reloaded.
    Uninstalled Acrobat 9, reinstalled, still same problem.
    Help please!

    Yes I can it only happens in the browser..
    I reinstalled Windows on my machine and started over a couple of weeks ago.
    When my desktop started up I didn’t have Acrobat installed and clicked on a pdf file and the open with xxx dialogue box came open.
    I chose a different program as Acrobat wasn’t installed yet so it associated pdf files with another program.
    Later Installed Acrobat and couldn’t associate the pdf file with acrobat so I went into Folder Options and manually associated PDF files with Acrobat.
    Ever since then I get the error when something is downloaded and opened in the browser.
    Works fine everywhere else and when I cancel the blank error, highlight the web address and press enter to reload it works 90% of the time.
    Not sure what to do..

  • PDF File not opening in browser for sharepoint 2010

    Recently we have moved our web application from one server to another in Sharepoint 2010. Back up of entire web application was taken and restored in another server. But in the new server , the PDF files in the document library is not getting opened in browser.
    it always open in browser
    I have already made following changes but didn,t work
    Set browser file handling to Permissive from central admin
    Set "open in browser" in setting s of doc library
    Set the doc library file handling property using $docLib = $web.lists["Your Document Library Title"] $docLib.BrowserFileHandling = "Permissive" $docLib.Update()
    Added "AllowedInlineDownloadedMimeType.Add("Application/Pdf") in web app
    Installed Adober eader in client machine
    Even after trying all these, the PDF files are still opening in Client application(Adobe reader) but not in the browser
    It would have been great help if anybody provide a solution for this. I have been banging head on this for two days

    It would be handy if you didn't double post too.

    To answer your question, you've tried most things that I normally see working, but there may be an extra solution here for you.  The solution 2 Powershell that deals with updating the Inline MimeType may help.

  • PDFs do not open in the browser since IE11

    Hi,
    since the IE11 is installed the PDFs do not open in the browser with Adobe Reader, but directly in Adobe Reader.
    The PDFs can be filled but not saved online because they are not open in IE.
    If I disable the PlugIn in IE11 and activate again it works again indefinitely.
    Can you help me?
    PS: translated with Google Translate
    Thanks

    This, to me, sounds like it's working.  Or perhaps a problem with the translation?

  • PDF is not opening  in safari

    PDF is not opening in safari . I have adobe prof 9, and safari is the latest version.
    Now, all I get is a black window and nothing loads.
    what should i do?
    i have added ad ones to open pdf in safari, but still doesnt work

    Carolyn, thanks -- your solution helped.
    Actually, I've had the issue in OSX Lion, whereby the .pdf didn't launch in Safari . . . well, not launch fully. 
    In my Safari Browser, there would be a blue Q (Quicktime logo) that appeared momentarily, and then the 1st .pdf page (only) would show.  But, not say, the other 17 pages . . .
    Anyways, in Lion I got a message "Cannot delete (Internet Plugins) folder because OSX needs it" or something like that --> so, I just deleted all the contents + quit Safari = solved!

  • Pdf file not opening on pushing fdf file with F key in Adobe  Reader

    Well i am a novice developer in case of PDF Development.
    The problem which i am facing is:-
    In our application a PDF document submits the data to server and server sends back FDF to client with f key as http path of PDF which is present on web server.
    This all works well in acrobat professional 7.0 but in abobe reader 8.0 the PDF file doesn't open up on pushing FDF.
    On debugging the problem i found out that if server sends response within 480 milliseconds then reader is showing the pdf otherwise it don't shows up.Since in our application it will always take more than this time because of several operation performed to serve the request posted to server,So the
    PDF will never show up in case of reader.
    I was unable to understand what make it special in acrobat professional that session lasts more than 480 milliseconds whereas in reader the session doesn't last that long.
    I really need uregent help on this.
    Thanks in advance for help.

  • Using 10.6.8, internet pdf documents not opening using Adobe Reader; how is this corrected?

    Using 10.6.8, internet pdf documents not opening using Adobe Reader; how is this corrected?  I've tried changing "sharing and permissions" to "read and write" as suggested on other help sites, but this did not correct the problem.

    I had the same problem---contacted Adobe and their service rep helped me by
    A.   Deleting  Adobe Reader from my iMac's Applications in Finder
    B.   Downloading Google Chrome browser and then
    C.   Downloading the latest Adobe Reader for Mac 10.6.8 in Google Chrome--it works
    Adobe acknowledges problem with the latest Snow Leopard update 10.6.8 and with this work around, I can open PDF's using the Google Chrome Browser.
    Is this the ideal solution---NO.  Safari is my main browser. I now have to use a separate browser for PDF's.
    Am I happy to be able to open PDF's---YES
    You can't believe the time I spent to solve this problem before calling Adobe for help. My Apple Care policy expired a month ago . As I use Photoshop Elements, I was not charged by Adobe for their help on the telephone.

  • Issue: installed Adobe Reader XI, Norwegian version, existing pdf will not open or appear empty

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled a number of times, but I still have the same issue. Adobe automatically gives me the Norwegian version as I live in Norway. When I open existing pdf files they appear empty, and automatically close themselves after a few seconds.
    Any idea how I can solve this problem?
    Your input is highly appreciated!
    Thank you.

  • I just paid for Adobe PDF pack and I think I am having problems installing. When I select to print from word, PDF is not an option. Help!

    I just paid for Adobe PDF pack and I think I am having problems installing. When I select to print from word, PDF is not an option. Help!

    Hi voltric2014,
    If you are on Windows, you can download and install the CreatePDF Desktop Printer, which would allow you to "print" to PDF from Word. You'll find a link to the installer on the CreatePDF page at https://cloud.acrobat.com. Here are the instructions for installing it: Using Adobe PDF Pack
    Please let us know if you have additional questions.
    Best,

  • Interactive PDF will not open online with IE

    I have been using ID 5.0 for a year creating interactive PDF publications. All of the sudden the PDF will not open in any version of IE. Works fine with Chrome, Safari...
    I have unistalled ID and reloaded but that did not help. I have changed versions of IE with no improvement.
    Previous publications onlie still open fine, its just the current publication that has the issue.7y6
    Anyone have any ideas?
    Crissymarie

    That sounds more like a settings problem or missing plugin in IE than anything else.

  • I have Adobe Design CS6, suddenly a simple PDF will not open. Noting happens when I doubleclick either the file or try to open Adobe Acrobat X Pro

    I have Adobe Design CS6, suddenly a simple PDF will not open. Noting happens when I doubleclick either the file or try to open Adobe Acrobat X Pro ?

    Hi Jenny, I just had to do that, for the 3rd time. It is a pity though when one pays for such expensive software that this happens, specifically when the only Adobe help is to tell you to post your problem on a forum and hope someone can help you. Not good enough and not what I expected when I bought it. I am so disappointed in Adobe.
