Problem with opening PDF files in Google Chrome browser


Level 2

We have a web page displaying links to dynamically generated PDF files located on the internal repository. This files are not just text PDF files but PDF forms created using XFA technology. This means that they must be opened and filled only in Adobe Reader and not in Foxit Reader or browser's built-in PDF viewer.

Now, the problem is that a Google Chrome browser opens any PDF file using its own PDF viewer. And I want to force this browser to open PDF files in Adobe Reader.

How can I achieve this without disabling 'Chrome PDF Viewer' plugin since I can't do this for all users of our web site?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. We use LiveCycle ES3.

Each user would have to set each browser individually.

Note: I don't think it's possible to set the default PDF viewer with code for every user who visits the site.

See the following link to enable Adobe Reader as the default PDF viewer in different browsers:

Note: Not all PDF viewer browser plug-ins support PDF submissions, and most 3rd party viewers may not support forms created with LiveCycle or forms with Extended Reader Rights enabled.
