What do you mean by an "add-in"? Do you mean a plug-in?
thanks for you question, yes, a plug-in.
I don't use MSI for my plug-ins - never entirely sure how to pick up a
plug-in folder in that environment. Definitely not an environment
variable. A number of registry keys, but so far as I know undocumented
and unsupported except of course for HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/.pdf for
finding the default program for opening PDFs.
Maybe someone else has a suggestion...?
For Acrobat 6.0+ you can use:
(Default)="C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat X.0\Acrobat"
Replace X with the major version you are looking for. There may be multiple versions listed (my system has 7.0, 8.0 and 9.0 because I have had, at some point, each of those versions installed) but the InstallPath key will only exist for the currently installed version.
Thank you for your responses. Most helpful.
