    Adobe Reader Version Location

    DustinDD
      I am using Adobe Director 11 to build an application which contains PDFs published by our company. I am using an XTRA to determine which version of Adobe Reader is installed on the end-users computer- our PDFs require version 7 or higher. My question is- where does Adobe store the version of Adobe Reader? In the registry? If so where? Is this consistent with all versions of Adobe Acrobat Reader?

          If you know where the exe is for the acrobat reader, you can use
          BuddyAPI to get the file version of the exe itself.

          put baFileVersion("c:\program files\adobe\acrobat 7.0\acrobat\acrobat.exe")
          -- "7.0.8.2006051600"

          You can use BuddyAPI's baFindApp() command to get the path to the
          program, but it will depend on the user actually having acrobat
          associated with PDF files...

          put baFileVersion(baFindApp("pdf"))
          -- "7.0.8.2006051600"
