When I try to open a pdf file on Adobe Reader XI (or even in Adobe Acrobat XI !!!) which has a .zip or a .tar.* file attached to it, I get the message:
Acrobat cannot save the file attachment "file.zip" because your PDF file attachment settings do not allow this file type to be saved
I have searched for a solution to this, and the only apparent solution is to hack the Windows registry to disable this feature lockdown.
But if I make a PDF with such a file and distribute it, I do not want to ask my users/recipients to hack their registries!
How can I circumvent this stupid lockdown?
By the way, if I open the file in Linux (evince, Ubuntu 12.10 32 bits), I can save the file without problems.
