Opening Password encrypted .pdf's with powershell

Hey there

A customer of us sends us daily some reports in PDF-Format. The PDF files are password encrypted.
To provide the pdf's to our employees we have to open each report, enter the password (we own it), and save the file afterwards.

Is there a way to do this with a script, prefered powershell?

Regards

Powershell will not work with Acrobat. However, starting with Acrobat X, you have an action wizard, that can automate whatever you like. What Acrobat version do you use?

Does the manufacturer (was it adobe?) of the software you use to encrypt have a website with an FAQ, tutorials/manuals? Did you look at those already?

Yeah - I googled for about 2 hours for it. Adobe only supports a userinteractive solution, not really stuff to perform for a automated task :/

I found some scripts with some 3 party dlls (which I dont want to use if possible), other one's to create pwd protected pdf's .. but nothing really to do the decrypt part.

Thanks McKnife for your input! I found an acrobat XI in our marketing team (IT only have version 9 licensed, lol).

I'll try the action wizard!

Powershell and Adobe PDF's dont interact. Use the Adobe tool "action wizard" to do so.
