copy below code in notepad

and save as AI_openMultiPagePDF_CS4_CS5.jsx

I got from internet check and use.

#target illustrator
#targetengine session

// script.name = AI_openMultiPagePDF_CS4_CS5.jsx;
// script.description = opens a multipage PDF;
// script.required = requires CS4 or later
// script.parent = CarlosCanto // 01/07/12;
// script.elegant = false;

// Notes: I didn’t try opening a ridiculous amount of pages, I “only” open 35 pages….in about a minute and a half.
//         Use with caution, save everything before running, script is memory intensive…
