Hello Esrimidor,

While I am not personally aware of any command line options to force a PDF to open to a specific page, so long as the document does not already have a page defined, it is possible to define a page in html links by adding #page=N, to the hyperlink, like so:

<A HREF="http://www.example.com/myfile.pdf#page=4">

This also works for UNC servers, so the following example would work too:

<A HREF="\\servername\folder/myfile.pdf#page=4">

I hope that this helps!

Isn't this works?

from Viewer Help

PDFXCview.exe /A "page=nnn" mypdffile.pdf


Update:

I just tried this by myself and it's working like a charm! :mrgreen:
