Adobe Offline Form Upload File Lock


Java stack = 7.0 sp6

ADS = 7.0 sp 6

Adobe LiveCycle Designer = 7.1

Adobe Reader = 7.0.5

IE = 6.0.2900 SP2


We are building an off-line form scenario, using mode "usePdf" in the interactive form UI.

We are using the Upload File UI, can happily load pdf from front end, data moving into controller context ok.

When we attempt to open the form, the browser responds with a Save/Open/Cancel prompt - if we choose Open then we get a Reader Popup 'There was an error opening this document. This file is already open or in use by another application'. Which it isn't of course.

If we change the mode to 'UpdateDateInPdf*' then it works but it's just rendering out the project's own .xdp resource and so we lose our prefilled data.

We get this error even with the standard SDN tutorial project on Offline forms, so I guess something to do with versions of Reader etc?

Anyone got the same problem?
