that _you_ want to run acrord32 and not something unpleasant, but the
point is that if it were possible for you to do this then someone else
_would_ so something unpleasant.

Why do you want to run acrord32 on the users pc?

'I' need to do must be run on the server. Why can you not do the
manipulation on the server? Not that I know about XDP at all.

I would say that "the user needs". The server can not do that because
there is no accrobat installed in the server.

Then you need to install Acrobat (or some other XDP processing tool) on
the server, so that you can serve a PDF file to the user, or you need to
find out if there's an XDP browser plugin and tell your users to install
it. You are going about this entirely the wrong way.

...or serve the XDP file with the appropriate MIME type that the browser
knows to tell Acrobat to open it. That would appear to be
application/vnd.adobe.xdp+xml .
