How can Reader users attach a file to Dynamic PDF?

Level 1
Level 1


I created a dynamic XML expense form in Adobe LiveCycle ES2, with the additional features enabled for Adobe Reader. In the form are “attach file” buttons for the user to attach their expense receipts to the form. This works flawlessly in Adobe Professional, but I did not realize until the form was completely built that users with Reader (we have DC installed in my organization) cannot use the “attach file” functionality. After doing further research, it appears that Reader users can only use this functionality if LiveCycle Reader Extensions server is installed. I need to know whether there are any scripting workarounds that will allow Adobe Reader users to use this functionality, or if Reader Extensions really is the only option. I have read that Reader Extensions can be “quite pricy” but have been unsuccessful at finding any further info from Adobe.

Any insight that can be offered would be much appreciated!
