pdf files carry wrong mimetype application/octet-stream
Resolving The Problem
Archiving PDF files using IDM Webservices (Toolkit) results in a "wrong" mimetype in the F_DOCFORMAT field: application/octet-stream instead of the expected application/pdf
This is a default behaviour since Adobe Reader is not installed on the Web server
Since customer was not happy installing Adobe Reader on the Webserver the solution
was to add the registry key
leave (Default) value blank
and add string "Content Type" with value "application/pdf"
after restarting IIS the F_DOCFORMAT value was populated with the mimetype application/pdf
