Open secured PDF

Post by pseongho »

I'm trying to open a PDF that is secured for everything except printing, but I can't open with Open() function.
When I try open the PDF with Amyuni PDF Creator tool, it asks me a password.
I can open the same PDF with Adobe Reader without entering the password. After opening the PDF, I can only view and print.
I just want the same behavior with PDFCreator ActiveX. Is there a way to open the PDF as read-only just like Adobe without entering password?

Is the PDF File created by our PDF tolls or by another tool?

Does the PDF file have a user password or only an owner password?

The Open or OpenEx functions thake two parameters the file name and the password to open that file.

If when opening the file in Adobe you are not asked for a password than you need to provide a blank password when calling these functions.


PDFCreactiveX1.OpenEx DocumentName, ""

Hope this helps
