We are generating FDF documents that populate PDF documents on a GoDaddy shared web server. This only works on Internet Explorer. GoDaddy won't allow installing any programs on the server to flatten PDFs.

Has anyone found a way to flatten PDFs without installations so that the security problems of fillable PDFs are removed, and the PDFs can be displayed on any browser?

(I've heard of sending FDFs to another server and returning PDFs but I'd like to avoid that if possible.)
