    Hey, I’m having trouble. I have the 8.4.48, but I keep getting the Win32API error. I’ve downloaded the Hammond Win32 stuff, but I’m not sure how to install it. I click on the setup icon and something pops up but then disappears real quick. I’m sort of a rookie and hoping someone can guide me in the right direction. How do you install the Win32 stuff?

      By the way, Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit OS.

      install python and the extensions as described in the faq section. No installation support for python and the extensions. If needed you may ask in mobileread.com or directly at the producers of the extensions.

    Hey I’m having trouble using ineptPDF 8.4.48 to remove DRM from FileOpen-protected PDFs from the Brit(ish) Lib(rary)

    I input the file paths of the file I want to decrypt and that of a clean output file, but get an error message “Cannot find FoWP3Uuid in registry or file. Did Adobe (Reader) open the file?”

    When I try open the file normally using Adobe it works, but the file does not open when I run ineptPDF. Unfortunately Brit. Lib. PDF keys can only be downloaded once, so if it does not work at the first attempt I cannot rerun it and try again.

    I am using Win7 32-Bit Home Premium, Python 2.7 32-bit, PyCrypto 2.1 for 32bit Windows and Python 2.7, pywin32-214 for win32 and py2.7.exe, Adobe Reader X and FileOpen plugin.

    I have already tried the following but they have not helped:
    – creating an adeptkey file
    – opening and running ineptpdf from the python IDLE gui
    – changing the filename or moving the file (means I cannot even open it normally since the key from server requires the correct file path and file name!)

    I have noticed some weird characters after the filename I can see in the windows gui when I try deleting the file – could these be messing things up? (E.g. Windows asks: Are you sure you want to delete LZD_FOTEST_bbacbaacc *&%&*FJFJU&*%FGH, or similar. Normally I see only LZD_FOTEST_bbacbaacc.)

    Could it be something to do with using Adobe Reader X? Do I have to change any security settings in that program or use an earlier version?

    Thanks for any help

    Best wishes,

      Further to the above:

      I have had a look at your code and seen the error message arises as a result of ineptpdf failing to grab a registry value under HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/FileOpen.

      I have looked in the registry and cannot see any FileOpen path.

      Hope this info helps.

        I think the new “Protected Mode” in Adobe Reader X is causing the problem, either by limiting the program’s ability to create registry entries, encrypting or interrupting the server query from the fileopen plugin or something else.

        I have read numerous forums and blogs noting the “Protected Mode” causes problems with server-shared PDFs, antivirus programs and other things.

        There is an option to turn off protected mode in Adobe Reader X, but I instead decided to remove it completely, installed Adobe Reader 9.4 and hey presto it works perfectly.

        Thanks to Tetrachroma for this brilliant piece of work.

          It might be that this “Protected Mode” writes it’s files somewhere else. I haven’t investigated it so far.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
