This is because this PDF form is a actually a PDF/XFA document, a proprietary XML based Adobe standard that usually comes from Adobe LiveCycle Designer.
As is has not been recognized as an ISO standard, we do not support this standard at the moment.
Has there been any further investigation into XFA support? Currently all PDF/XFA files are rendering with the standard Adobe warning message:
''If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents of the document, your PDF
viewer may not be able to display this type of document...."
