I'd love to get an answer to this as well since I'm having problem when the PDF is opened outside of IE.
You certainly can't set this on a per-document basis, because Reader
has to restart. I don't know if you can set it programmatically at
Reader is not an issue. All workstations have Acrobat Pro 7.0.8.
This is to support our browser-based review, which must be done, obviously, in the browser.
If there is no direct command equivalent to setPreferenceEx, do you think it could be done with App.execMenuItem?
You could get the "Preferences" window to open but nothing else. Also you may have to program around the security of the safe menu options.
Speaking of preferences....I'm running 7.09 on Vista and it seems to work for me. EXCEPT for the script editor. I have to reset the external editor app every time I open a new doc; needless to say this is irritating. If I use the default one the text just whites out when I try to edit code. Just as irritating. Is this a known bug. ANYONE???
Has Adobe walked away from support of versions <8.0?
The only version of Acrobat that is supported on Vista is 8.1.2. Adobe has posted its support of Vista since Vista was introduced. See the Knowledge Base for more information.
Technically 8.1.0 was the first version that supported Vista, but I would definitely recommend 8.1.2 if running on Vista.
Were you able to address the issue here.. setPreference through JS (HTML).... our corporate policy is enforce opening PDF in new window but our application needs to open PDF in the same browser...... but the links need to open in new window.
Thanks for your response..
Cannot be done with JS. If you're in an enterprise setting, you should be deploying your application preferences via policy-driven custom installers, or by setting the registry/plist keys directly.
