I did search the Adobe forums and found some scattered mentions of
problems with PDFs correctly launching external files after upgrading to
We have a PDF that lists out all our documents and a summary of the
information in each document, and that PDF has a button to launch a .pdx
searchable index of all the documents. It was working file when we
created it with 9.3.3, but now when it is trying to launch (in 9.3.4) a
file that is actually in the path "Folder\File.pdx" it gives an error
that it can't open "Folder/File.pdx" (and of course you can't open it
you silly program, when you try to switch around forward slashes and
back slashes like that!).
