Hello,

I would like to make grey 'Display PDF in browser' option in Adobe Professional 8.1.1

Do you have any tip to do that ?

regards,

I took a look inside this post. It seems to be not the same registry setting for Professional version

This is the registry key that greys the option to display PDF in browser: DWord value

Software\Policies\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\8.0\FeatureLockdown bBrowserIntegration 0

Now what I would really like is a way to grey the option to enable Javascript in PDF files.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that you can achieve the effect you want by renaming the folder called 'Javascripts' located in "%appdata%\Adobe\Acrobat\[version_number]". Renaming is safer than deletion, in case you want to re-enable it at some point.

Many thanks for you help :)

But I would like to activate the option also.

Reactivating would involve renaming the folder back to 'Javascripts'.

I think your best option is to try the user forums on www.adobe.com. No-one from Adobe takes part (apparently) but there's a few knowledgeable people there who may be able to help you out.

This is from the notes in the Packaging secton of this site.

PROPERTY - DISABE_BROWSER_INTEGRATION=YES Disables viewing of Web pages in Adobe.
PROPERTY - BROWSER_INTEGRATION = 0
FEATURE TABLE CHANGE - ReaderBrowserIntegration = 0

Kent, AFAIK, these - in effect - only un-check the check-box on the dialog. The OP wants to grey it out so that the user cannot re-check it (or re-uncheck it, whichever way his installation is set up)

I remember reading that somewhere but the Javascripts folder is a protected folder in version 8. If you rename it or delete it the msi will repair that folder the next time you launch Acrobat.

Try this:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\FeatureLockdown
"bDowntown"=dword:00000000

folks,
to disable options for the users (grey them out), you have to put the settings in the adobe products machine policy.
On Adobe Reader the following registry value does exactly this:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\FeatureLockdown\bBrowserIntegration:0(DWORD)

The same should apply for Acrobat Pro also.

If you put the settings into the HKCU branch, it will be certainly user editable.

@Kent: Your post is definitely wrong. Never seen this option so far.

Regards, Nick
