Hi all,

I've seen lots of usefull tweaks for the Adobe Reader installation. A particular issue we're facing is the Rsync Path Sanitation Vulnerability. To mitigate this vulnerability we need to reconfigure all our clients to not open the PDF in the browser anymore.

I've found some registry keys to perform this action unattended (see below). However, when the application opens, a message is displayed: "You cannot currently ciew Adobe PDF files from within your web browser due to a configuration problem. WOuld you like Acrobat to fix the configuration?"

Can anyone point me in the right direction, plz?

Appreciate the help.
Martyn

Well it seems it is actually the MSI self repair that is kicking in. Is there any way I can circumvent this?

you said it yourself, this is the Repair function that adds this again, so either uninstall this version, and install a new version or, hack the registy to delete the self repair, delete the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\productcode\Sourelist, remove all hele and the repir process sould not work, maybe the appalication cannot start either, you have to give it a try.
