Hi!

I have created a package, to install Adobe Reader X (10.1.2). Works fine.

BUT

the upgrade patch (from 10.1.0 to 10.1.2) is changing the global printer configuration to "duplex print".

How to change that back to normal printing?

Use a lightweight snapshot tool e.g. InstallWatch to capture the change after you make it and then incorporate that in a transform.

cmon, snapshotting is the last of all options, not the first.

What Ian means is probably to use the snapshot to find the changes and incorporate the changes in the MST to your MSI.
Not use to use the resulting MSI as a post install to your Adobe Reader installation.

@Anders: That's exactly what I meant.

@ Gerhard: The other option, of course, is to use your authoring tool to compare the original MSI with the patch (or the patched MSI) to determine  where the change is happening and bypass it "natively".

Hi, again.

Adobe has already apologized for their settings-change in their own forum.

It actually is a "current User regkey"

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat\10.0\AVGeneral
“iDuplexMode”=dword:00000002

the change to dword:00000001 will do the trick.
AND
Adobe will change it back with the next patch.



thanks for your input.

I put Adobe in the same category as Wise, as they both have the happy knack of taking working code and breaking it.

Fabulous QC and UAT, eh?
