I am looking for an answer to this also.
We also deployed 8.12 to over 1000 users with the "Disable PDF in browser" option checked using the customization wizard. Now we're finding some users need it to view certain PDFs in a web-based application.
We would like to add the option, but removing the registry key doesn't actually install the option when you check it. It seems you might have to create a new mst then redeploy. We'd really like to not have to do that, if at all possible.
In the Reader archives, one guy suggested running this:
msiexec /i Adobe_Reader_8.1_MUI.msi ADDLOCAL=ReaderBrowserIntegration
I haven't tried that yet. Any feedback or other suggestions?
OK, after a little more searching, I found an article in the KB, http://www.adobe.com/go/kb401258.
It says in the customization wizard on the Installation Options screen, in the Default viewer for PDF files section, make sure the option "Installer will decide which product will be the default" is selected.
That fixed it for us. Now to test if we can repair current installs, or if you have to uninstall and reinstall.
