Adobe Acrobat profile problem


I'm trying to deploy Adobe Acrobat Pro 7.0 in my organization, and the MSI is very friendly. The only problem is that Adobe Designer, which is part of the Adobe Acrobat Pro product, saves all its templates to the local profile on first start up. We have a 10 mb limitied profile on our network, so this is a problem for us.

Has anyone seen this? How do I redirect this to another directory?

Heya Markus,

Adobe Designer stores the location of it's templates in %appdata%\Adobe\Designer\en\Templates\LocalTemplates.xml

I changed the xml contents to

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<templateTabSet default=".\Standard\Letter.tds">
<tab name="Standard" directory="D:\Templates\Standard"/>
<tab name="Sample" directory="D:\Templates\Sample"/>
<tab name="Custom" directory="D:\Templates\Custom"/>

Worked like a charm.

I'll probably implement it by writing a 'cleanup' script that runs along after the install of Pro and moves the Templates to a new location and edit's the XML file to suit.
