hello, I',ve found this answer
to solve the problem, but it simply does not work ...
Using Acrobat X Pro (italian version) + win 7 pro (sp1).
Pls look at the scrrenshot.
Thanks for the help!
Those instructions are for Acrobat DC. No idea if they can work with such old software.
thanks. Btw I tried also with DC but result is the same ...
I've generated a PDF file by converting a folder that contains various messages, many with attachments (other PDFs, jpgs and so on - as well as .zip files).
Once the PDF file is generated I can save all attachments EXCEPT .zip ....
the result is the same with DC
Ok... what exactly did you do? (Note that embedding ZIP is VERY MUCH not a recommended workflow).
as I wrote above, I've generated a PDF file by converting a folder that contains various email messages, many of them with attachments (other PDFs, jpgs and so on - as well as .zip files).
I'm able to save ANY attachment BUT zip files ... (yes. I know it could be dangerous but I'm absolutely sure where the zip files came from).
You said "I tried also with DC but result is the same" -- I assumed that meant you tried the detailed instructions in Adobe's help page to allow it to open ZIP files. So I wanted to check what steps you followed, exactly?
yes, I tried also the instructions in Adobe's help page
I tried EDIT -> PREFERENCES -> TRUST MANAGER ->
"allow opening of non-PDF file attachments with external applications"
but no way, I receive always the same error
That seems to be a part of the instructions only. Did you also add to the white list?
.. I think this is the crux of the matter! how can I add .zip files to the white list?
I haven't tried it, but the linked page has detailed instructions under "Manually add a file type to a black or white list". Don't they work?
If I follow the instructions, in fact, I can attach a zip file, saying it is reliable.
But once attached to the document - it will seem incredible - the reverse operation is no longer possible! (i.e. download!)
What message do you now get when you try to open an attached ZIP file?
(always the same!)
thanks a lot
maybe I've found a solution:
and in particular
dangerous yes ... changing the register is somtimes a leap in the dark .. but it seems to work
