Forgot to add that the registry value is supposed to be named "iFileAttachmentPerms"
Same problem here. I cannot get this to work with the most recent version of the documentation.
Not sure I just "fat-fingered" something, but I tried it out on another system and it appears to have worked.
iFileAttachmentPerms = 1 [REG_DWORD]
Try it out and see if it works for you. I will be testing it on a few other systems as well. Using Reader version 9.3.2.
Running Acrobat and Reader 9.3.2 and still nothing. Have not tried another machine yet. But this is a simple key entry. Not sure what the problem is.
What we need is for Adobe to give us real Group Policy control through them providing us with adm and admx files.
There are a couple ADM Templates out there that have some of the settings. I was going to create a new one that encompasses more settings. However, I want to make sure that they work first.
Here is the issue:
According to their documentation the REG_DWORD is to be placed in "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\FeatureLockDown\cDefaultLaunchAttachmentPerms".
That is incorrect, instead place it in "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\FeatureLockDown"
Value is: iFileAttachmentPerms = 1
Give it a whirl.
BAM! That did the trick.
For Reader the Product name is Acrobat Reader, not Adobe Reader as well as I thought it was supposed to be Adobe Reader.
Thanks for the assist!
The following is a modification to the adm template posted in http://forums.adobe.com/message/1774291#1774291
Under "Class Machine / Category Reader" add:
KEYNAME "SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\FeatureLockdown"
VALUEON NUMERIC 0
VALUEOFF NUMERIC 1
EnableOpeningNonPDFAttachments="Enable the Opening of Non-PDF Attachments"
EnableOpeningNonPDFAttachments_Help="When Enabled, the application allows file attachments of the .pdf document to open within the application. Disabled prevents this behavior."
