    As it is explained in the documentation (Reference, note for
    'external-destination' attribute), you should use explicit file:

    ulink url="file:other.pdf"

    will generated a link to the other pdf which works directly from
    Acrobat Reader.

    Acrobat Reader cannot open remote files as PDF links; it can only
    do it through an external browser, in which case you should not
    use file: url scheme, but the actual scheme instead, http: or
    just relative, and you must have browser configured.
