[Bug 701505] Re: Problem with Adobe Reader update: Unable to find the HTML rendering library


presently, I have received this error on 32 and 64 bit machines.  It
doesn't appear to be just the arch issue.  Perhaps we can "statically
link" the required files to the application?

RELATED and PERHAPS helpful for other readers:

I would love to have a means to address this... I frequently have to use
Acrobat for digital form signing... as well as it is the ONLY program
that handles the XFA format that is embedded in many PDF forms.  There
is NO program for Linux that I am aware of that provides this support.
Even worse, as time goes on, Adobe has taken the XFA standard from the
AcroReader 9 version (3.0) to at least 3.3, so no AcroReader doesn't
reliably open every PDF document out there.

For reference, if you are needing to sign documents that are not XFA
enabled, the non-free *** PDF Studio *** presently provides support for
PKCS#11 smartcard certificate signatures.  A little intense to setup
initially (read their site for instructions), but once set up, it works
well (BTW, you can use the coolkey pkcs11 library instead of the other
pkcs11 library their instructions reference).

In dialog with Master PDF Editor, they indicated they will add support
for XFA and digital signatures in a future release... but no time was
provided for this enhancement...

Wine is not an option.  Had partial success (read fail) by getting Wine
Adobe 11 to see my smartcard, import certificates, but no further.
Tried Adobe 11 until blue in face, and it would always crash when
clicking on "sign".

The best solution (an distasteful) is to use dual boot OR run a virtual
machine with Windows in it...
