You should only be installing "Acrobat Pro" on machines that are normally used by users who you wish to use the software (the ones you bought the licenses for).

Installing "Pro" after "Reader" should ensure that "Pro" is associated.

Unfortunately, uninstalling "Pro" may leave no version of Acrobat associated at all. Repairing "Reader" should fix the problem.

Our requirement is to Hide these options in the package, so i have written a script to do that, its hiding most of the option but only the above two is not happening your suggession is appreciated.

Below is the MenuHide.js Script
---------------------------------------------------------------
//disables Online Support
app.hideMenuItem("OnlineSupport");

//disables System Information
app.hideMenuItem("SystemInformation");

//disables Detect and Repair
app.hideMenuItem("DetectAndRepair");

//hides View > ToolBars
app.hideMenuItem("ToolBars");


//hides File > Print Me Internet Printing
app.hideMenuItem("EFI:PrintMe");

//disables Updates
app.hideMenuItem("Updates");

//disables Acrobat Online
app.hideMenuItem("AdobeOnline");

//disables Acrobat Expert Support
app.hideMenuItem("Acrobat Expert Support");

//disables Accessibility Information Online

It adds Acrobat menu items to the contextual menu when "right clicking" on files.

In our environment we have a similar issue where certain machines will have both the reader and the Pro version installed. This happens because Adobe Reader is effectively part of the 'base build' and so everyone receives it. Then the people who require the full version receive that over the top. However, what then happens down the line is that the Reader is updated, (from 7.0.2 to 7.0.7 for example) and so now takes precedence away from the full version.
One issue that seems to arise is that clicking on an internet pdf document link, diplays the pdf in the browser using reader 7. Now if you try and launch Pro 7 from the start menu, its the Reader that gets launched! There is no way to launch Pro 7 whilst Reader 7 is 'open' albeit in a browser window.

With the above in mind, is this Adobe trying to tell us that the Reader and Pro versions should NEVER be installed together? I guess logically they would asume that if someone has the full version then they would never have a requirement for the reader. Unfortunately in our environment, for standardisation purposes, everyone is expected to have Reader regardless of whether they have full version or not.
