Forum Thread - Cannot export attachments from a PDF file (sometimes) ...


I wrote a small, simple program to extract attachments embedded from a given PDF file.  The code opens a PdfDocument(), then gets an array of Attachments(), and then saves data from each Attachment via GetData().  Generally works fine, however every now and again the code would lockup with certain PDF files when calling Attachment.GetData().  The files are not particularly huge (anywhere from 10 to 40 MB).  They are all authored by the same company (EB - Electric Boat), using the same authoring software.  Can you help me?
