Also, we told you already you can't do it without a script that's installed on the local machine. You're wasting your time.

This line:

var filePath = this.path.replace(this.documentFileName);

would makes sense if you were to change it to this:

var filePath = this.path.replace(this.documentFileName, "");

You might want to look at How to Save a PDF with Acrobat JavaScript by Thom Parker from 2010. Quite old but the script still works as written, you just have to adjust for the revisions in the location of the user Acrobat JavaScript folder if you use the user's folder.

Unlike a executable line of code that end with a semi colon, comments only end with a new line. You posted code will not work without some editing.

doc.saveAs()

The trusted function was introduced in Acrobat 7.0.
