PDF Problems and Solutions

Problem: Online Adobe PDF form prompts to download instead of viewing in browser.

Solution: Your problem is with MS Internet Information Services. You must setup a Mime Map with IIS. To Do this follow my directions at my web site.

Also Note ASP and ASP.Net only allows you to post one type of MIME Type at a time. So you have to make sure when you open an FDF through ASPX you do not (Response.Write) or post anything other than FDF data per request from the server. Any header information will be regarded as HTML. Remove all the Header information and save the ASPX.
