This needs to be done with some JavaScript:

Create a link in Acrobat with the Link Tool. Select a "Custom Link" as the link action. On the next dialog click on the "Actions" tab and select to "Run a JavaScript".

Use this code (you need to adjust the name of the attachment of course):

// launch an attachment
this.exportDataObject( { cName: "test.pdf", nLaunch: 2 });

Open in new window
