    Let me please inform you, that PDF can be embedded to the form with a PDF Embedder widget: 

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/pdf_embedder

    However, user will not be able to sign the PDF since internet browsers do not have PDF edit options.

    Also, you have provided an internal path to the PDF on your computer (file:///C:/Users/...), it will not work for PDF Embedder widget. You will need to upload the file somewhere, and then use the link to that file.

    In case you need a signature field on the form, we have some options available:

    The form entries can be also downloaded in a PDF format.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
