yes it is that difficult to use when twats like you use this forum
people are allowed to post what they want on this site

you don't even have a clue about what I am looking for

I am not looking for the featurelockdown keys which I have already

have you disabled the HELP >>> online support menu before using a reg key and not javascript was the question

no wonder idiots like you have posted over 200 messages and you have not even got a score to your sad name

piss off

I think the only way you can do it is with the jscript. There is definately no option on the customisation wizard.

Whats the reason they dont want to use the java script?

there's quite a detailed guide here (I know it doesn't help you, but for others)

thanks timmsie for the reply
I have already seen that link on google

spent some time on adobe forums as well but it seems there is no reg hack

the option is all javascript

my client don't want to use javascript because of the security threats

thanks I will go back to the client and see if there would go with the javascript

Typical of Adobe to not put all of these options in the deployment wizard (an in turn in the registry) - at the end of the day though you can only achieve what you can. It's up to the client to live with the menu option or go for JScript [;)]

It would be good to see companies thinking out of the box sometimes and going with other better (often free and open source) products like, Foxit Reader, 7Zip, CDBurnerXP - instead of the ususal Adobe, WinZip, Nero option.

Guess that's just a pipe dream - but at least it keeps us busy in the meantime...

Cheers,
Rob.

Well you might not be able to actually remove the Online Support menu option without JS but you can disable the options so that they do not do anything and that does not require JS.

Yes, I did it with version 9.3 with JS disabled. Just to be clear the items in the menu are visible they just do not function.

First, let me say that your language is very offensive to me. You can get away with that language in a bar or on facebook, perhaps. Not in front of me. If you behave like this with your clients, you may want to start practicing this phrase "Spare a dollar, buddy?"

If you have the right to post, everyone has the right to reply. Don't get huffy and use vulgarities because you don't like someone telling you to RTM, particularly when your original post is so vague and poorly worded. You don't mention that you have read or tried anything. This is not the psychic hotline.

Second, your client does not want to use JavaScript because of the "security risks", but wants to use Adobe Reader? Really? Do they understand the black hole that is Adobe security? The constant updates, that will likely break the hacked changes you make on the original install? Do they use FlashPlayer? Shockwave? If it were me, I would find the reason behind the request before spending infinite hours on hacking together a solution.

MSIPackager, I have tried to get some of these smaller companies to let me demo their programs. I am in a very large user environment (tens of thousands), I would love nothing more than to offer options to Adobe products. It is amazing that small companies can be so unbelievably unresponsive.

It is hard to explain but in a nutshell disabling JS will prevent those menu items from functioning. If anyone is interested send me a pm and I'll email you the transform 38k in size.
