Hi everyone

I would really really appreciate help with this one, i have had a go myself but am a bit out of my depth.

Basically, i have created a package with the Customization (sic!) Wizard that works fine and have started upgrading about 1500 machines.

The users are compaining that the Select tool and the Hand tool are "not there" (by that they mean they are not displayed by default and they cant be bothered to look for them [sm=rolleyes.gif]). This has become a hot potato and i really need to enable these 2 buttons on the toobar by default. It is the Select & Zoom toolbar in question i think.

Can anyone tell me how to do this? I have looked in the reg but nothing appears to be related to this setting, am i looking in the wrong place.

Thanks.

I am fairly new at this but I think if you can add the following keys to your users it would accomplish your goal:

(Note: I got these by opening reader 8, adding the tools and then exiting reader to make the reg entries show up.)

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cBasicTools]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cBasicTools\cInternalButtons]
"a0"="Select"
"a1"="Hand"
"a2"="endBasicToolsGroup"
"a3"="ZoomViewOut"
"a4"="ZoomViewIn"
"a5"="ZoomTo"
"a6"="endZoomTypeGroup"
"a7"="endZoomToolsGroup"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cBasicTools\cPositions]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cBasicTools\cPositions\cInternal]
"iDockPosition"=dword:00000000
"iFrameB"=dword:00000000
"iFrameL"=dword:00000000
"iFrameR"=dword:00000000
"iFrameT"=dword:00000000
"bHidden"=dword:00000000
"iLayout"=dword:00000000
"iOffset"=dword:7fffffff
"iOrder"=dword:00000003
"iStack"=dword:00000000
"bWindowHidden"=dword:00000000

slsmith you are a top dude!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you very mcuh for this, i once tried a trial of some reg monitoring software for just these reasons but it was so difficult to determine what was application and what was the constant reg activity of XP. how can i return the favour? do you have any questions i might be able to solve?

Thank you very much for your help, this seems to work for me - i will amend the deployment package as i think you can add these registry settings (under the Current_User keys) in the package as defaults.

will report back

Well yes there is - I am trying to do the same thing as you with my installation - albeit slightly different.

I used the Adobe Customization tool to customize the installation by blocking a few features/annoyances. I also used the Direct Edit feature to add some reg keys (to add toolbar buttons) however, the method I used only gave the account the reader was installed from the toolbar buttons. I need the keys to apply to all users on that machine (both current and future).

Please let me know how you are implementing your install as it may be what I need to do as well. My install is headed for a few terminal servers with hundreds of users as opposed to hundreds of client machines.

Thanks.

I will add for clarity after re-reading your last post that your plan to add via the direct editor is exactly what I have done successfully, but only for the account the product was installed from. Here are the entries I made in the Registry table:

Registry Root Key Name Value Component_

Registry927 1 SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cFile\cInternalButtons a0 Open Registry_Main_User
Registry928 1 SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cFile\cInternalButtons a1 Print Registry_Main_User
Registry929 1 SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cFile\cInternalButtons a2 Save Registry_Main_User
Registry930 1 SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cFile\cInternalButtons a3 SaveFileAs Registry_Main_User
Registry931 1 SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cFile\cInternalButtons a4 AcroSendMail:SendMail Registry_Main_User
Registry932 1 SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\AVGeneral\cToolbars\cFile\cInternalButtons a5 FindDialog Registry_Main_System

You would simply change the above to accomodate the key values i put in my first post. Keep in mind these lines are wrapped and are in order. You also only use what you want.

Hmmm - is there any way to set these options as default for all users, not just the logged in user? Might be easier for me to use a registry file and include it in the "Launch Other Applications" section?

LOL - i should have read your first post first - looks like we are having the same problem!

The only way i know of to force options in the CURRENT_USER section is to use group policy. I know that the Adobe 7 adm file that was posted on this site works OK, so i suppose one could be made for 8 although i dont know if that would work with the different 'virtual' users on a terminal server, would be interesting to know...

I am almost at a loss. I have tried a lot of different things with the Customization tool and haven't gotten it yet. One of the suggestions I had was to change the number 1 in the root field to a 2, which puts the keys in HKLM. It did not work for me.
