    ADM GPO templates for Reader XI are incomplete and misleading

    RichieB2B

      We've just migrated to Reader XI, and I was hoping to switch configuring the registry settings to the new official Adobe Reader XI ADM templates. However, they are very incomplete. For example, the following registry setting are missing:

       

      HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\11.0\FeatureLockdown

      iProtectedView

      bUSEWhitelistConfigFile

      bEnhancedSecurityInBrowser

      bEnhancedSecurityStandalone

      bDisableTrustedSites

      bDisableTrustedFolders

      bDisableOSTrustedSites


      Also, the description of many settings are misleading. A good example is "Disable automatic updates" which reads:

       

      Disables automatic updates and removes associated user interface items.

      0: Disable and lock the Updater.

      1: No effect.

      Setting bUpdater disables the user interface items Preferences > Updater and Help > Check for updates are disabled.

       

      This seems logical, however to get a "0" to be set you have to set this GPO to Disabled. So you "Disable" the "Disable automatic updates" GPO. That feels like you are enabling it. Very confusing.

       

      I welcome the release of the official ADM templates, but it looks like a rush job and that benefits noone.
