Is there a way to execute acroRd32.exe without installatio?. I have the entire reader system in one directory. I uninstalled the reader (7.0) but I have all the components of this installation in one directory. I executed acrord32.exe and I get the above errror. I have an application that I will be distributing, and received the Adobe Reader and Runtime Software Distribution License Agreement last week for distributed of the reader software with the application. I want to distribution the reader components as a sub-directory under my application system, so the user can use this version without installing adobe reader on their workstation.
Is this possible or does the user have to have the reader installed on their workstation?
AFAIK Adobe Reader must be installed, as it also places various registry entries, as well as the PDF file association, plus items in the Program Files\Common Files folder.
