Apparently some Enhanced Security has been turned on with this latest version of the Reader. That is sort of a major change. .How do I change this so that all users will get the enhanced security turned off, when we push it out to everyone? It is killing our .pdf forms.
I doubt it's anything you can turn off (since I believe it was a security update). At least not with any ease whatsoever.
You did right to test on a couple of machines first. It doesn't work so, don't update the other machines.
We are having the same problem, systems with Adobe 9.3.1 work fine with our forms. Systems with Adobe 9.3.2 do not work unless we uncheck the Enable Enhanced Security check box under Edit\Preferences\Security (Enhanced).
We have our sites with forms in our Local Intranet zone within IE. The Automatically trust sites within my Win OS security zone check box should allow access with no problem but we are not seeing that. I believe there is a bug in that setting that Adobe will need to fix.
However, not patching is a silly idea as there are known exploits for Adobe vulnerabilities so I would not take that recommendation.
I foujnd a couple of usaful links while trying to resolve our Forms issue after upgrading to Reader V 9.3.2.
This may not be a Best Practices option, but it is an option.
The following link has a lot of information about Enhanced Security and lists Registry Edits to disable Enhanced Security.
This link is sort of Off Topic, but still relevant to Acrobat Reader. Since there are many Reader Updates sent out in various forms, (i.e. .exe, .msi, msp, etc) requiring multiple installs in some cases, this link looks helpful in consolidating the installs:
