I have taken the following information from www.appdeploy.com to Disable the Adobe 6 Pro Registration when the app starts up for the first time.

Deactivate the registration request automatically opening by the first programm start:

Use this value in hex mode.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\6.0\Registration]
"PRODREG"=dword:65686669

Hex value "0" would mean not yet registered.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\6.0\Registration]
"PRODREG"=dword:0


I have set PRODREG to 6586669 and I have set it to 1 and nothing works.....I still see the "Do you want to Register" message when I start up Adobe 6 Pro.

How do I get rid of this?

Thank you.

you may need to use that key in conjunction with one of the ones ive listed in order for it to work properly
just a thought, give it a try and see how you go

Thanks for the help!! One other thing.......I have a Wise script that will run AcroPro.Msi from a network share. It installs fine. I can start up Adobe Acrobat and it runs. But, when I log off the machine and log back on as a different user Adobe will not work at all. Have you seen this and if so how did you fix it?

Thank you.

hmm not sure about that, i do recall this happening to me with another product and it was one of the registry settings i included in my transform - the program wouldnt shut down properly
what i did was take a copy of the transform and get rid or each of the modified registry settings one by one, testing each time, its a ling winded process . .
you could so it the other way too, start with a clean transform, and include the registry settings that are most important to you - one by one so hopefully you get the ones you want and see how you go . . .
im sure theres a better way though
youve checked the event log?
