Hi, I've packaged up my reader 7 and everything works fine except for the "bhidden" DWORD that's supposed to turn off the Yahoo! Search button.

I have tried adding the key manually and tried it as part of the installation package, both ways do not seem to turn it off, ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS?


Much thanks!

Just a question to ponder:

Does the number of zeros in the value make a huge difference?

The Knowledge base article only show 6 while the version posted above show 7.

Yea, I spent lots of time today trying to repackage Reader 7. Just can't get that damn Yahoo search button off the toolbar.

Like you, I have tried the bHidden dword key and also those 11 keys but no luck.

OK I finally got it to work and will answer my own question.

In InstallShield Tuner for 7.0, you can create the regkeys or import it via a .reg file.

When you import the keys via a .reg file, it will be imported into the top half of the screen "Source Computer Registry View". You then need to drill down to the keys and drag then drop them into "Destination Computer Registry View".

Then do a Save, Test, Run and it should work.
