You don't need to change anything.. your code is alright.. its just you can not FORCE webclients to skip save window. operating system doesn't allow web applications to change native behavior of browser

It is open pdf in acrobat without asking open dialog box,
but one problem arise ,that is the viewer page is shown as empty , i want to show another page , how it is possible?

its possible only oon client side.. probably in javascript you need to check if you can create ACTIVEX control for PDF viewer.. if it allows ..ignore otherwise redirect
