First time poster, long time lurker (Please be gental)

Okay is there a way to disable view pdf in browser setting in the tuner?

Does anyone know the registry punches that need to be made?

Using the tuner I have been able to disable the setting in the options, but it is just disabling the ability to change the check box, which is still checked.

Does anyone know where to ORCA edit the MSI to do this.

Im stuck, please help.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Dragon,
There is a way to do what you want and I did that :)

Just set DISABLE_BROWSER_INTEGRATION property to YES.

Open the MSI / MST in Orca, goto the Property table and look for DISABLE_BROWSER_INTEGRATION (you can sort properties by name by clicking the Property column heading) and change the value to YES

If the property is not there you will need to add it along with the value - but I presume it is there so just change the value.

Hope it helps,
Rob.

Does anyone know what registry key(s) control the enabling or disablling of this feature. I need to push out an update that enables the display in browser feature, without having to reinstall the entire application.

Thanks in advance....

Well to get some idea:

  • Open Acrobat up on your test machine, get the relevant options window open
  • Fire up something like regshot (which can scan file system changes as well as registry changes if required)
  • Do an initial scan of just the registry as this setting is unlikely to be held in a file
  • Change the relevant setting back in your options window (i.e. turn on or off browser integration) and click OK
  • Leave Acrobat open, do a post scan then a compare

Your output file should show you what reg key changed when you changed your preference through the Acrobat GUI. Since this is the only thing you did on you machine between the 2 snapshots you shouln't have much else in the compare output... Once you've found it you can prove it by changing the reg setting back to what it was, open the options dialog again and see if you change has been reversed again.

You can obviously use Wise or whatever to snap the changes but it's a bit overkill - regshot is ideal [:)]

Hope it helps,
Rob.

if you want to punch the reg key it is a per using setting, so you would have to set it in every user account, and then set it in the default user also.

The key is

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\Originals
REGDWORD: bBrowserIntegration
DATA = 0x00000000 (0)

I used regshot, but kept on getting an error while doing the Compare. I found the reg key referred to by Dragon, but changing to either 1 or 0 did not make a difference apparently. I also called Adobe up, but they refused to give out any information on this, saying it is "not public" yet. I like the idea of using regshot; just have to make it work. Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!!

What was the error? There isn't much to regshot to go wrong!

Did you define a valid output path (c:\windows\temp or whatever) ?
Did you try outputing to text and html ?

Cheers,
Rob.

The key is

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\Originals
REGDWORD: bBrowserIntegration
DATA = 0x00000000 (0)



I tried to set this reg key for HKEY_CURRENT_USER but "display pdf in browser" is still active. Where do I set the reg key for the default user as well? I have tried to set it this way, but that did not produce the effect I wanted:

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\7.0\Originals
REGDWORD: bBrowserIntegration
DATA = 0x00000000 (0)

I also tried to use the Installshield Tuner for Adobe Acrobat and I checked "Disable Display of PDF in browser" in my .mst file. This setting is then correctly greyed out in adobe reader, but when I try to follow a hyperlink to a pdf, Acrobat starts up and closes immediately again. Any tips as to why this is happening? I am using Windows XP SP2.

Does anyone know if the reg keys are different in the Norwegian version of the program? I have tried with both this and the English version with the same results.

I really don't understand why this reg key isn't working for me. All other keys listed at http://itninja.com/link/installshield-tuner-7.0-for-adobe-acrobat are working fine.

Please help! I am new to both packaging of software and the windows registry..

If anyone else has the same problem, my problem was solved by applying the 7.0.1 patch to Acrobat Reader.
