Trouble Setting "Display PDF in browser using" by MCX

Jan 19, 2011 4:04 PM

I want to force the PDF viewer in Safari to Mac OS X v10.6 built-in Preview Application instead of Adobe Acrobat Pro (9.4.0).

 

I found that unchecking "Display PDF in browser using:" in Acrobat's Preferences, sets the viewer in Safari to Preview. It seems unchecking this box modifies ~/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.Acrobat.Pro_x86_9.0.plist. by creating the entry root => Originals (dictionary) => BrowserIntegration (array) => item 0 as number with value 0, item 1 as boolean with value 0.

 

With that in mind I tried creating a MCX setting in my OD to apply root => Originals (dictionary) => BrowserIntegration (array) => item 0 as number with value 0, item 1 as boolean with value 0. Witch resulted in a grayed out, but checked settings for  "Display PDF in browser using:"

 

I was wondering if any one has successfully figured out how to set this setting?
