Creating valid hyperlinks

Post by Shepard G. Montgomer » Wed, 26 May 1999 04:00:00



I am trying to create a .pdf document from a Word document that includes
hyperlinks (Internet links) by using Acrobat Exchage. When I do this, the
hyperlinks do not appear to work in the document. Does anyone know what I am
doing wrong here?

When you say using Exchange, what do you mean ? Are you printing to file
and using Distiller ? Using Distiller Assistant ? Which version of
Acrobat are you using ? If version 3, are you using the PDFMaker macros
in Word ?

1. SymbolicLink not valid on USB2, valid on USB1.1??

I have a USB2 device that provides a serial number, which
the bus driver uses to create a symbolic link name. I can
use that symbolic link name to connect using CreateFile,
except on some machines on the USB2 port it won't connect,
CreateFile returns FFFFFFFF instead. On the same machine,
it will connect on the USB1.1 port. USB1.1 is built-in,
USB2.0 is via an OrangeMicro PCMCIA interface card.

The symbolic link I'm using is created for me in the
registry:
HKLM/System/CurrentControlSet/Enum/USB/Vid_8086&Pid_1130/XT
G20020845/DeviceParameters/SymbolicName

WHere "XTG20020845" is my device serial number field.

The SymbolicName is:
\??\USB#Vid_8086&Pid_1130#XTG20020845#{a5dcbf10-6530-11d2-
901f-00c04fb951ed}

I create a name string as follows:
unsigned int SerNum = 20020845;
ostringstream strDeviceObjectNameBuff;
strDeviceObjectNameBuff
<< "\\\\.\\USB#Vid_8086&Pid_1130#XTG" << dec << SerNum
<< "#{a5dcbf10-6530-11d2-901f-00c04fb951ed}"

My CreateFile call looks like:
hInst = CreateFile(
  strDeviceObjectNameBuff.str().cstr(),
  GENERIC_READ | GENERIC_WRITE,
  FILE_SHARE_READ | FILE_SHARE_WRITE,
  NULL,
  OPEN_ALWAYS,
  FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL,
  NULL);

Anyone see similar results or know why the CreateFile
might only work with the USB1.1 vs. USB2.0?  There is a
driver that creates a generic "Itpusbx0" symbolic link,
and that works for either USB1.1 or USB2.0, but it isn't
serial number unique.

I see this on XP and W2k, more frequently on Thinkpads.
