[THIN] Re: Yahoo Search on Adobe Acrobat 7

Can I take my registry entry, all entries in HKCO, and replace them with
HKLM, and have it set these settings at the machine level, rather than the
user?

I have done as AppDeploy recommends and created a MST.

 

Trouble is, I think my command line is wrong, adds a .exe at the end of the
line and fails if I use msiexec /I to start...

 

msiexec /i "c:\acrobatrd7\adobe reader 7.0.msi"
TRANSFORMS="c:\acrobatrd7\adobe reader 7.0.mst" ReallySuppres /qb!

 

Adds .msi at the end and fails if I use the following.

 

"c:\acrobatrd7\adobe reader 7.0.msi" TRANSFORMS="c:\acrobatrd7\adobe reader
7.0.mst" ReallySuppres /qb!

Make it a reg file that is imported at login and see if it helps.

GPO, that was my concern.  The users in question, are not AD users, NT

I was hoping to address this ADM on the local machine, for all users.

Since this is a GPO, it applies at time of policy refresh, right?  What
happens to user policies at user login?  Do they apply, or only on the
refresh interval?  I don't know the answer to that personally.

So, if the registry isn't open for that user when the policy refresh
interval occurs, then I assume the policy cannot update their registry.

If that's true (someone check me on this), then It's possible that the user 
will never be logged in when the policy refreshes.

Try logging in as another user and running gpupdate /target:user and see if
it makes the changes for them.

Using the following as my adm.

Add the adm.

Open regedit.

Open registry.  Adobe items show under default user.  Those things then only

affect the user I was logged in as.  Not future users who connect?

Since this key runs from HKCU, here's  asample I use for another HKCU 
specific ADM:

Notice the first CLASS commands, which specifies it's HKCU.  Then KEYNAME
specified the actual subkey.  Then the rest of the ADM to set values.  Is
yours setup like this?

Add the ADM under the User's section of the policy. 

CLASS USER

EXPLAIN "This policy will modify three different portions of the Windows

extension to be seen or not."

Hang on...I added it, logged on as me.

It only appears in local user, when opening registry...I am missing
something easy.

How do I set this ADM and it's Adobe settings for all users of this server?

Translate it into an .ADM file.  On the page there is actually an ADM for 
the EULA.  They're pretty obvious how to modify them for other keys.

After installing Acrobat Reader 7, we found that users could click on this
search the internet button.  We lock down IE, but some apps. run Acrobat PDF
reports.  We want to remove this button.  I have tried change user /install,

and right click, remove from the toolbar, but it does not hold for all
users.  Ideas?
