Error launching a pdf after creation

Have a standalone application. It creates .pdfs of student reports. All works good on a Mac. On my Windows computer I get this message when trying to launch the pdf both from INSIDE my standalone and as a document file from the desktop.

The message reads (From Adobe Acrobat): "There was an error opening the document. This file is already open or in use by another application."

Thank you all in advance.

This works here without any problem on Mac/Win/linux

Code: Select all

launch document "/path/to/file.pdf" -- use full filePath
Of course Adobe Acrobat/Reader doesn't refresh an already open document.
So you have to close it first.
