Investigating further, the resource in question opened in the browser
successfully when I shortened it's file name. Lesson learned is that long
file names cause problems ?

Subject: PDF resources in public folders not opening in Reader
We have many resources that are published in PDF that we want to make
available in public folders. However, when you browse to them and click on a
PDf file, it does not open in Reader but within the browser and I am finding
that the PDF reader plug-in for the Browse activity is not able to open many
of the files - it just tries then chokes with a blank screen. Not particular
large files either (3MB or so). The same files open perfectly well with Read
activity from the Journal.
So, how can we get it to force downloads that then open in Read activity?
There is a check box "force downloads", can we make that take affect
globally in the public folder?
