I've recently been tasked with updating our Adobe Reader 8.0 to 8.1.3 due to a recent vulnerability identified by Adobe. I downloaded the Adobe Customization Wizard and created a transform with the changes I needed (including disabling Beyond Reader at startup). When I deploy the package with this transform to a machine that has a previous version of Adobe, I get the Beyond Adobe screen when I first launch Adobe 8.1.3. When I deploy the package to a machine that does not have a previous version of Adobe installed, the Beyond Adobe screen DOES NOT come up.

Outside of the Adobe Customization Wizard, I tried adding registry keys, setting the featuer level for Beyond Reader to 999, and other suggestions from here http://itninja.com/link/using-express-software-manager-in-an-sms-environment:-technical-note-10195. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Sorry - I guess I spoke too soon. I added the registry key below and this has successfully disabled Beyond Adobe.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\8.0\Downtown

Another candidate for the 'Package KB'. Would you do that for us?
