I have created a document viewer in ColdFusion to retrieve documents out of our imaging database. Hyperlinks to the documents are dynamically created and reference an asp.net webservice. The url to the retrieve the documents looks like the following: http://servername/pathtowebservice/getImg.aspx?documentID=51086fd9-8518-4cc2-a9fd-528b8f9fe4f8
, where documentID is a unique identifier to the document without a file extension. Most documents are .tiff, which we have set to open with Microsoft Office Document Imaging with no issues. However, internet explorere displays "Internet explorer cannot display this webpage" when trying to access documents of type PDF. I tried disabling the "display in browser" feature of Adober Reader, and the links will open up in Reader. I am able to right-click the link and "save as", and the file is retrieved and downloaded and as a PDF. Due to other programs in use, I need the ability to open PDF's in internet explorer and this was not a viable solution. I have tried configuring PDF MIME types in IIS on both the calling and receiving servers with no success. I have repaired the Adobe installation and cheked for the existence of the necessary .dll files and add-ons in internet explorer. LInks to other PDF documents on different websites open in Internet Explorer without issue. Any questions or comments on how I can get the PDF's to display will be greatly appreciated.
