Open CDS PDF attachment in browser window or with PDF application


I am moving my SharePoint data sources to SQL and CDS.  I set up a Launch function to open a PDF Viewer file into a browser window and it worked fine.  Now I am using CDS attachments for PDFs, and I am having trouble.

My Launch function with SharePoint was: "Launch(Gallery4_1.Selected.AbsoluteUri)".

When I try to do the same function with CDS it opens a browser window: " with an error: "HTTP Error 401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied ".

Any help with this would be appreciated!  My backup plan would be to re-size PDF Viewer control with some kind of toggle to max size and smaller "thumbnail" view.
