In Acrobat X 10.1.1 I created a form, added a submit button with Export Action HTML and entered a URL.
I Saved Form as Reader Extended PDF -> Enable additional Features.
The form will submit correctly using Acrobat X
The form submit using Reader X gives an error 'An error occurred during the submit process. Unknown failure'
Any ideas how to resolve this?

A colleague resolved it for me.

The website I was posting to required Integrated Windows Authentication. Aparently you can't post from Adobe Reader to a website that requires authentication.

The solution was to create a receiver page in the website and allow this page anonymous rights.

I can leave this question open for another few days in case there is a better solution out there.
