I am installing reader and standard 6.0.2 and with no problem, I am reading the pdf in IE. After uninstalling Standard, Reader is asking if I want to read the pDF in IE...

I copied manually nppdf32.dll in Internet Explorer plug ins directory and the message is no more appearing in Reader. But when I am trying to open a PDF in IE there is only a red little cube in the IE window... So I am presuming Reader is not finding an activex or something like that.

Any idea how to correct that problem?

There are 3 files that require registration as part of the install.


Try that and see how you go.

Your solution was not complete as when I tried to open a PDF in IE there was a message "Cannot find Acrobat".

This is what I did:
regsvr32 /s "%programfiles%\adobe\reader\activex\GBDetect.dll"
regsvr32 /s "%programfiles%\adobe\reader\activex\AcroIEHelper.dll"
regsvr32 /s "%programfiles%\adobe\reader\activex\pdf.ocx"

xcopy Sources\PluginsIE\nppdf32.dll "%programfiles%\Internet Explorer\PLUGINS" /i /y /q > nul
xcopy Sources\PluginsIE\nppdf32.FRA "%programfiles%\Internet Explorer\PLUGINS" /i /y /q > nul
xcopy Sources\PluginsIE\nppdf32.DEU "%programfiles%\Internet Explorer\PLUGINS" /i /y /q > nul

MSIEXEC /qn /fmv "sources\reader\6.0.2\Adobe Reader 6.0.1 - Fran‡ais.msi" TRANSFORMS=reader.mst Sourcelist="%RIS%\%trousse%\sources\reader\6.0.2" /L*v "%temp%\%trousse%.log"

And now everything seems working fine. It is a very bad software installation/uninstall process. It is not normal the Standard uninstall would broke Reader...
