Hi. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post. Is there a way to change the preferences in Adobe Reader 7 or 8 using the registry or modifying a file?

Specifically, I want to go to Edit > Preferences > Internet > and UNcheck 'Display PDF in browser'

I don't want to manually do this. I want to script it so I can push the change to several computers, but I need to know where to go to make the change.

I've tried the tips here, but they did not work:

Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Are you trying to reconfigure already deployed installations of Adobe Reader or are you tring to set this when you're installing it?

Going forward in your deployments, I'd recomend using the Adobe Customization Wizard 8and building an MST to deploy it like you want.

As far as determining what to change if has already been installed, I'd use something like Active Registry Monitor to get before and after snapshots of the registry and determining what has changed and then scripting that out and pushing out those changes. A quick glance looks as if that is at least partly a per-user change, so it need to be changed for all users on the machine. Since you mentioned both Adobe 7 & 8, I wouldn't be surprised if the changes were different for each version.
