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

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
