Hi all, In the past our company has done quite a few Director
authored CD's that launch pdf files from a projector menu. These
have always been PC-based and we normally use Buddy API to check
whether the user has Acrobat Reader installed, and if they haven't,
offer them the option of installing it from a standalone installer
contained on the CD.
We are now producing another of these CD's, but this time it
has to be cross-platform. I have got the basics of the presentation
working, but I have two problems:
1) The 'pdf application checker' does not recognise the
default "preview" application on a mac as a valid way of launching
pdfs and returns the appropriate error - BAOpenFile will not launch
a pdf through this application either.
2) I can't find a standalone Acrobat Reader to put on the CD
either. All the Acrobat Readers I've located require an internet
connection at the time of installation, no good as the CD may be
going to users with no connection.
Can anyone suggest any solutions to the problems I'm
