Hi,

I am using Adobe customization wizard for packaging Adobe Acrobat 10. I created a mst using it. I did all the things which I found in the package KB in appdeploy. But I am facing issue with the "Product Registration" sub menu under "HELP" menu. I want to either grey it out or remove it completely. when I launch the shortcut and check, "Product registration" under help menu do not appear at all . if I wait for some time, "Product registration" tab appears in greyed out state and after some time it will get enabled automatically. Installrite capture is also not helping me to figure out the problem.

To Disable Registration, I used this registry
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\10.0\AVGeneral]
"bSerialized"=dword:00000001
"bAppInitialized"=dword:00000001

There is also a "bActivated" key whose DWORD value is x00000000 under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\10.0\AVGeneral but playing with these registry values is also not solving my problem.


Any help folks !!! or do you need any more information from me??

Regards,
Nikhil

I'm facing the same problem. I also tried your solution and some more. I even installed the product on a clean pc so i could exclude possible conflicts with other Adobe products. But no luck, product registration keeps re-appearing.

I have made a case with Adobe and sent them my .mst file, but so far none of their solutions fixed the problem.

IIRC, to remove menu items, you need to drop a JavaScript file into an Adobe folder. Search AppDeploy for 'HideItems.JS'.

I have seen this solution before in conjunction with other Adobe products and already added hideitems.js to my .mst file.

After starting Acrobat all items set in hideitems.js disappear from the help menu after 3-5 seconds, but product registration keeps coming back after 20-30 seconds.

Just got answer from an Adobe engineer. In order to disable the "Product Registration" menu item, replace app.hideMenuItem("ProductRegistration") by app.hideMenuItem("AMTDynamic1").

The following procedure (supplied by the Adobe engineer) provides a list of menu items in case other menu items need to be disabled. Have fun with it.

A full list of menu items can be found by doing the following:
1)Enable the interactive console under “Preferences->JavaScript->Enable Interactive Console”
2)Open the interactive console using “Control + J”
3)app.listMenuItems(); and press “control + enter”

Good work, Marbs. Could you post the details about the console usage to a 'Package KB' entry, please?

app.hideMenuItem("AMTDynamic1");
