Hi,

My company requires that pdf files on the web sites must be opened directly in the Acrobat window. I have disabled the ability too look at pdf files in IE.

Everything works fine in local admin context. The problem comes to locked down clients. They are getting a message in IE which says that the file (ActiveX for pdf) could be harm to the system. The user must confirm if he/she want to save or open the document.
I have tried to find out where the access lacks on unsufficent rights but without success.


Does anybody know something about this problem? [&:]

Regards

Hi Alex,

What version of Windows are you running? I am fairly certain that this is issue is related to a group policy setting that is controlling the way Active X controls are handled. Are you able to access Active Directory or look at your GP settings for a standard user.

Hope this helps.

Hi M,

Yes, that’s correct, the GPO for our locked down users prohibits the ActiveX.
The thing is that our Packaging Team must handle this. The ActiveX must be packed and the registry and file/folder permission is set afterward by scripting, mostly in Netinstall. That is no big issue. The problem is that I can't find/identify the correct files/folders/registry entries, which must be manipulated with the correct permissions.

The question is, which components in Acrobat 7 is loaded when the activeX is called?
In which entry does it try to write?

Regards
Alex

Hi Alex,

Do you have the same problem with Adobe Reader 7.0?

I took a look at my MST file for Acrobat 7.0 Professional (made using Adobe's version of the Installshield Tuner) and couldn't see any reg keys that stand out as being related to ActiveX.

An alternative could be to create a new group in AD and enable ActiveX for those users who will receive Acrobat 7.0 Pro? That would save on additional scripting and potentially be easier to manage?

I'm sorry that this has not directly answered your question, anyone else have any suggestions here on this one?
