So about a year ago we deployed Adobe Acrobat in our environment and at the time they used the ACW to disable the option to open a .pdf in the web browser and it locks the option so you can't change it. Now we've found that we need to open .pdfs in IE, so I made a new transform and it works the way it should, but I'm having trouble resolving the issue for people who already have adobe. I found a reg fix that unlocks the option and I can check it, but as soon as you close the app it unchecks again. Is there any way I could apply the changes in my new transform to an existing install? Any other suggestions would of course be appreciated as well.

Thanks

I did the opposite today, and applying this reghack to the users that got the old installation could work.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\8.0\Originals]
"bBrowserIntegration"=dword:00000001

You could try running a procmon in the background when checking/unchecking this option. The fact that the changes are lost when closing the window could be as simple as an access denied on a HKLM registry key that doesn't trigger a warning.

One issue you'll probably run into is reinstalling applications with new transform files. By default this does not work like you think it would in Windows Installer...
You might be forced to do a uninstall reinstall or a repair adding a REINSTALL=ALL parameter. There's a number of threads on these formus discussing this issue.
