I suspect that the definition of a0000.actnNext and its invocation
object containing the function definition is terminating prematurely,
when using Adobe Reader, owing to the security settings error. Thus
error applies to individual methods (e.g., app.addMenuItem) and
To track the problem down you could always add a try/catch block
around the offending code. The error message should pinpoint the
offending method. Then you could check to see if Adobe's
for the method in question. Alternatively, if you can distill
the problem down to a minimal PDF, ship it to me and I'll take
a look at it.
