Hey guys this is my first post. I had to complete some basics to be able to post here phewww!

Ok Here is my problem. I purchased an etext book for my Database class it is protected by Oracle's Sealed PDF, which requires a license to be uploaded thru their servers. Once opened using only IE, it embeds itself into IE and you can not save it, take a pic or print to file. However they will let you print on paper.

I have read around and only vulnerability is when the spdf sends the print job to the printer which lets to capture a .SPL file thru (windoze/system32/spool/printers). Now my question is, is there anyway to convert .SPL to pdf. ( someone on this forum had said that Microsoft onenote supports native printing option which lets you save the print job as a pdf to your computer. I have tried that and i believe Oracle has already found out about that.

Anyone with any ideas ? im not trying to print it out and make profit or anything. License for this etext expires in 6 months and i would have to pay additional $60 to be able to access the book again ( which is not fair, that blows donkey balls) not to mention you need online access and you can only open it up on two diffirent computers. Freakin nazis! Sad

That should solve your problem...just wget the file...If it's just a pdf file, they can't really protect it from being downloaded since when you visit it, you are downloading it!

An SPL file contains raw data that has been sent to the printer (in PCL or Postscript format). There may be a way to get the PDF out of the SPL file but, really, why don't we just try the easy solution? You want to get the doc to print to the SPL, then convert to a PDF... when, really, you could just print to a PDF in the first place.

Incorrect. Read up on HTTP response codes (particularly 403) and password-protected directories.

sounds like a good idea except Spdf blocks virtual printers. Only physical printers can print on paper. They really thought this out. I will go ahead and give a shot anyways. Thanks for commenting!

Printscreen, CTRL-v, then use that software that finds text in images and converts it to editable text. It's the stuff scanners use.

you cant print screen spdf files. When you paste it, it only shows SPDF logos everywhere.

No easy workaround this yet.

I tried and no luck, it detects virtual printers that are able to print to file. Either way PDFcreator doesnt support .SPL file which is a flash shockwave object.


Anyone using Linux in here ? There is a workaround in Linux but i dont have linux installed on my computer. Maybe someone will be willing to help me out.

The SPL extension is used for more than 1 type of file. One is a Shockwave Flash object... but the one that applies to your situation is a Raw Print Format.

What PDF reader are you using? Have you tried an alternative like FoxIt?

I just installed it on my other pc 32bit to be able to run foxit. Looks like it doesnt restrict on which files it will convert into PDF however i tried to convert a bitmap file into pdf and its taking years.

Does it take long time to convert, application didnt hang or anything. I got a feeling it will have a hardtime trying to convert a 60mb .SPL file.


edit: Fox it doesnt convert mostly anything but Word documents.

Any ideas on how to open .SPL file ?

Okay, yeah, maybe I mis-spoke. I meant, unless you have to enter a username and a password (if they're using .htaccess and .htpasswd) when you go the the file, they aren't protecting it. I'm assuming that he doesnt.

You cant treat this file as PDF it doesnt open or cant be viewed via any pdf creator, reader ect. This thing is a diffirent breed of animal.

SealedMedia software integrates with existing business systems to deliver protection of valuable digital information. It enables complete control over who can use sensitive information and when. The originator can change rights to access and use a document even after it’s been delivered including revoking access

FoxIt is NOT a converter program. It is a PDF viewer... which is pretty irrelevant considering the bit of information that you just gave. More on that bullshit later.


Any ideas on how to open .SPL file ?

It's like you don't even hardly read the posts I've already made. Oh, well, your loss.

Didn't feel it was necessary to mention that at the beginning? What a load of crap... figure it out on your own.

thanks for your half assed help anyways. Even though its called Sealed PDF, you cant open it up using pdf viewers. Foxit does convert files into pdf. Seems like just word files tho. Any PDF viewer requires a file extention to be obviously .pdf .. so im not sure why the hell you told me to try foxit when i told you i cant view spdf using pdf viewer.

Anyone with mature mentality and willing to help a brother out ?

Re-read what I wrote before you post. If you expect real help, I'd suggest not bashing the people that actually attempt to help you with your halfway-explained issue, asswipe. Good luck.

Did you even read this or thought maybe someone might have already tried a weakass pdf reader. SPDF doesnt even let you copy text off of it. NON. no pictures, no print to file, no view it in anything else but IE with a license. Sorry to come off rude but you are blaming me for not reading when you are no better at all. Anways, seems like you are trying to fullful your ego more than trying to help. Whats with the name callings ?

I'm blaming you for not explaining your issue fully and saving time in the first place. Good luck on the help.

I already paid $60 for it, if you have enough knowledge to work around this and you call me a stealer your a freaking hypocrite for doing what you do.

Let me break it down to you. I paid $60 for this etext, i cant view it on any other computer, i cant save it, i cant see the files offline, i cant see it at school. If you hacking for any freaking reason, i believe i have a pretty good one here.

about the windoze, im a stranger to the computer scene. Im just a regularass user who uses his computer to finish school. My bad if i looked like an ass ?

First off you don't know what I do, What I can do, or what I will do. I'm not a hypocrite, I would have never have paid $60 for it to start.If you want to answer your question there are many ways to achieve your goal, Look for them, It right in your face if you think how it gets displayed. No spoonfeeding, Your new here and you already started off on the wrong foot. Help yourself... Then Maybe we can help you.

i already searched for answers, thats why i came here for help. When you take your car to a mechanic, he doesnt tell you to go learn how to fix a transmission before he can fix your motor.

You dont know my situation, you might not have paid $60 for it but i had to, my other option was to pay $100 for a hardcopy or steal it from schools bookstore. I dont care if i got off on the wrong foot. Seems like some immature people here name calling and shit instead of trying to help a noob.
