I need to be able to not have any files listed for "Recently Used", before pushing this out. Deleting HKCU\software\adobe\acrobat reader\8.0\avgeneral\crecentfiles has not worked. And can't find anything in Adobe Customization Wizard 8.

For this I would use a custom action to remove this info on a repair and write a reference registry so that once found the CA will not remove this info again.
Active Setup may also do the trick but have in mind that it will only be called during the login session once.

I'm afraid your reply is a little over my head. I thought it would just be a registry addition to HKLM\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\Featurelockdown. I'll give more information.

I have an .mst I built using the Adobe Customization Wizard. The Wizard doesn't mention anything about "recently used files". The reason we don't want this feature enabled is due to DMS integration.

In your reply you mention "custom action". I'm not sure what you mean by that. Also not sure about "Active Setup".

As it seems you're a beginner of the Windows Installer technology I would suggest to search the forum for "custom action" and "Active Setup".
But it may be easier for you to just create a loginscript to remove the registry info.

My problem isn't how to remove the registry information. It is what registry information to remove. Thanks for the suggestion.

How about "HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles"

I thought about this last night and realized that maybe this was not the best place for this. Maybe an Adobe Reader forum. But I did fool with that registry setting and it didn't work.

Let's consider this closed.

Hi Ilewald,
a good place to find info about the Adobe Reader is:
http://blog.stealthpuppy.com/deployment/deploying-adobe-reader-81
However, to remove the recent file menu entry, do the following:
Create a text file called 'HideMenu.js' with the following 2 lines:
app.hideMenuItem("endRecentFileGroup");
app.hideMenuItem("RecentFile1");

copy this file to: "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\Javascripts"

Then add the following reg key, if it does not exist:
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\AVGeneral"
And this Dword value: 'iMaxMRUCnt' Set it to '1'

This should do the trick.
Regards, Nick

Thanks for the help. I fixed it.

I had to add the Reg_Dword value "iMaxMRUCnt" to HKLM\Software\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\FeatureLockDown. I was able to do this in the Adobe Customization Wizard in the Registry section of the .mst.

What does the value need to be set to? 1? 0? Some string?

The value doesn't matter because it's listed in the "Featurelockdown" section. So, if it's locked down, end users either don't see it or see it and can't change it. I actually stumbled on this when I was also trying to figure out "Display pdf in browser" option I needed.

And I love the "Damn processing" thing. Did you do that?

OK, excellent.

The GIF was d/l from somewhere...I can't recall where. It may even have been from another forum I used in the past. If you want to d/l it, try http://www.cyberiapc.com/gallery/pic_details.php?pid=209
