It appears that the ADM file may have been truncated. Send me an e-mail at email@example.com and I will send the ADM file to you via e-mail.
This is really nice!
Could you send me the whole adm file to firstname.lastname@example.org ?
Thanks again for this nice work :-)
I'll add a 'me too!' to the above requests.

By the way: Do you think it's possible to silently apply all (or part of all) these via a .REG file?
Could you send me the adm too? Cause in your post it's not complete. hackstein(at)trimet.de
Everyone... If you want a copy of this ADM file, you will need to send me an e-mail at email@example.com. I will reply to your e-mail and attach my ADM file. I do not check this forum very often.
Several people have asked if it is possible to deploy registry keys via a reg file. The answer is yes. If you have a REG file named adobe.reg, you can create a BAT file and put this command in it...
REGEDIT /S adobe.reg
This will apply the REG file to any computer that runs the BAT file. But your users will see the black command prompt window when the BAT file runs. It is easier to use group policy, or write a VBS script, to apply registry keys.
Here's the Reader 9 key.
Here's the Acrobat 9 key.
Just because I am a nice guy, I have updated my ADM file so that you can deploy this key via group policy. Send me your e-mail address at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want the ADM file. I have not yet determined what effect unchecking this box has. But I offer you a way to uncheck the box if you choose to do so.
OK... I give. After a hundred or so requests for my ADM file, I am posting it out on the public Internet. The file is currently up at:
When I import this adm template, non of the user settings show up. I do see the computer settings. Any ideas?
Thanks again for all your help.
Luis, the user settings don't show by default in the GP Management Console because they aren't specifically "policies", they are Preferences - so if the GPO goes away, the settings don't revert to the default, they stay how they were set with these Preferences.
To see them, Edit your policy, then under User Configuration>Administrative Templates, select, then right-click each Acrobat folder and click on View>Filtering. Uncheck the box that says "Only show policy settings that can be fully mananged" and click OK. The User settings should then be visible.
Hope this helps.
And thanks a ton to Rick for making this ADM! :)
On a side note, all older Adobe Reader and Acrobat clients (versions 6, 7, 8) also supported the same bEnableJS setting. It is easy to copy my ADM file and mass change all of the 9's to 8's in the copy of the ADM file and have a template that works for Adobe 8 products as well. And so on.
Currently there are discussions in progress, if general blocking of PDFs for users ist a practical alternative until Adobe provides a patch. I know some companies that already made that drastic step accepting the flooding of their user help desk.
what do I do wrong? I ga to this page, see your nice posting about the adm file but your posting ends up with
So there is a peace missing, could you perhaps post it again? or email me the file?
The poster posted a link to the download which you must have missed.
