    Adobe Reader 8 gets focus when opening a document via DDE

      We have an application that incorporates Adobe Reader. The application consists of two windows. In one window the user can enter commands, which causes Adobe Reader to display a document in the other window.

      Until now, we have used DDE commands to call Adobe Reader 6. This worked fine for the user, as focus stayed in the command window, which meant that the user could issue a number of commands, without having to regain focus.

      We have just installed Adobe Reader 8 on our machines and now Adobe Reader steals the focus, every time a DDE command is sent.

      Is there a setting we can change to stop Adobe Reader from stealing focus or is there a work around that we can use to avoid the problem?

      Thank you in advance :-)
      Best Regards
