Hi all,

I am running the following command (from within a batch file) on a machine with Adobe Acrobat 5:

REG QUERY "HKCR\MIME\Database\Content Type\application/pdf"

The command results in a message: "Error: The system was unable to find the specified key or value"

I have visually inspected the registry and the key does in fact exist. When I lose the trailing application/pdf, the query returns with items found.

What am I doing wrong here? I am guessing that the forward slash has something to do with it.

Hi Jeremy,

It is probably the forward slash (like you mentioned). It might not be suitable for your scenario, but perhaps you could try a "system search" from within the msi.

I'm not sure about other ways of solving it.
