Hi Prasanna

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. As described you are getting the error 'This PDF file contains attachments. PDF Optimizer will not process the attachments. You'll need to open each attachment and run this command to process all files.' when you try to optimize the PDF file.

 

What happens when you click on OK button on the error message does it let you use the PDF optimizer?

 

As mentioned you have no idea of any attachments in the PDF and how to open them. Please click on the attachment icon in the left tool pane, it will show you the attachments present in the PDF file. You can double click on the attachments to open them and run the optimizer to these files.
