Opening PDF within IE7 - file could not be written to cache

P: 1
When opening a PDF over SSL running on IIS 5.1 (Windows XP Professional, W2K Windows 2000, or Windows Server 2003), you may receive the following problem with Internet Explorer.

First, instead of opening the PDF in Acrobat Reader, IE asks you, "Do you want to open or save this file?". If you click "Open", then you receive the error, "Internet Explorer cannot download file.pdf from servername. Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later."

If you right-click on the link to the PDF, and select "Save", you receive the following error: "Internet Explorer cannot download file.pdf from servername. The file could not be written to the cache."
