    Microsoft Edge will not render PDF located on ImDisk ramdisk


    Windows 10 1709 x64
    ImDisk 2.0.9

    I was given a new laptop at work. The laptop has a DVD drive which I hate, I haven't used optical media in like 10 years. I much would have preferred something lighter/smaller without DVD drive. So naturally I start to install some of my favorite free software on it, ie ImDisk which lets me emulate most disk images (ISO and such).

    I love to use an ImDisk ramdisk to store downloaded files while I decide to keep them or not.

    Microsoft Edge is the default viewer for PDF files. When I try to open a PDF on said ramdisk, Edge displays nothing. Copying the file to the SSD then opening with Edge renders the PDF file successfully.

    I thought it might be some anomaly with some combination of software, so I installed Windows 10 1709 x64 to a virtual machine in my Xubuntu desktop. With a basic install, the problem still occurs... PDF does not render in Edge if on ramdisk, but does if on the virtual SSD. It is reproduce-able.

    I was reminded of a another weird problem I had in the Windows 7 days, where Windows Media Player absolutely would not play an MP4 located on the root directory of a ramdisk, but would play if located at least one directory deep of a ramdisk. But at the time I never took the time to reproduce it.

    In any case, I'm sure it is some bug of Microsoft more than ImDisk, but thought maybe it might be worth investigation.

    :)

    Microsoft Edge does not render the Pdf stream

    Hi All,

    I have the following application returning a PDF document as a FileStreamResult. Microsoft Edge is not rendering the PDF document. Anyone know how to fix this? or This is a known issue of Microsoft Edge?

    public FileStreamResult Get()

    {

    MemoryStream workStream = new MemoryStream();

    Document document = new Document();

    PdfWriter.GetInstance(document, workStream).CloseStream = false;

    document.Open();

    document.Add(new Paragraph("Hello World"));

    document.Add(new Paragraph(DateTime.Now.ToString()));

    document.Close();

    byte[] byteInfo = workStream.ToArray();

    workStream.Write(byteInfo, 0, byteInfo.Length);

    workStream.Position = 0;

    return new FileStreamResult(workStream, "application/pdf");

    }

    Thanks

    Niranjan

    [SOLVED] Temporary Internet Files (location) corrupted since creating 'RAMdisk'

    Hi!

    I'm having this issue for some time now and I don't know how to fix it. It's "Temporary Internet Files" within the Internet (Explorer) Settings, that also affected the Edge.

    I created RAMdisk to try storing Internet files on it to speed up my browsing. That worked great!

    I just moved the Temporary folder location to the RAMdisk.

    The problem is, I can't restore Temporary folders to it's original location.

    So basically Internet Explorer and Edge do not have any history and do not save anything if RAMdisk is not running.

    I tried moving back the saving location with or without RAMdisk but it keeps reverting the save location to 'blank' if RAMdisk is not running and reverting location to RAMdisk if RAMdisk is running.

    RAMdisk is a tool that creates HDD out of RAM, making that HDD faster than SSD or anyting else.
