Default Getting a permission denied error in IE 7

Can anyone please help figure out where i am going wrong with the following javascript code:
function printPDF(){
popWin = window.open('subsoffer.pdf','popUp','top=0,left=0, height=700,width=1000, resizable=yes, scrollbars=0, menubar=0');
This function printPDF() is invoked when through the onclick event applyed to <td>.
So far a PDF is opened as a popup and a print dialog window is also opened soon after the PDF window. This is what i want but it only works in firefox and not in IE 7.In IE 7 the PDF popup is opened but the print dialog is not opened, instead i get a Permission denied error in IE 7. What could be causing this? Your help is so much appreciated

It may not be possible, IE has tightened up a lot of potential security holes. Try specifying the full path to the pdf, e.g. http://myServer.com/.... Also the protocol must match the parent page, so if the parent is delivered via https then the PDF will also have to be.
(Plese post questions once only.)
