Though the latter sounds like an SOS before June: May Day!

The problem is simply that xdvipdfmx cannot handle these modern PDF versions. It needs to be updated… The best cure is to use an PDF aware application that can save the PDF file in an older version, PDF 1.5 (AFAIR). Another cure would be to ask the PDF producer to reproduce the file in an elder version. A bit more complicated would be to convert it to PostScript and convert that to PDF.



If it does exist, it's out of date.
