Both open fine in Acrobat. They are near identical files. Do I need to convert them to a different format using Aspose?

Your PDFs contain proprietary XFA forms.
No 3rd party library will be ever capable to render such PDFs correctly.

The only solution i know is to switch back to standardized AcroForms.

thanks!.. Can I use Aspose and save it as AcroForm, and then it will open?

@jon_elster_i3intel_com

You can surely convert the XFA to Standard AcroForm using Aspose.PDF. Please try using following code:

Document doc = new Document("XFA.pdf");
doc.Form.Type = FormType.Standard;
doc.Save("StandardAcro.pdf");

In case you notice any issue, please share your sample PDF with us so that we can test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.
