    Check for adobe acrobat on install and install if not present

    worldwisewebs

      I have an application that hinges upon Adobe Acrobat being present and functional on a machine.  Many of my users use Mac which often does not have Acrobat present.  I'm wondering if there is a way to check for Acrobat on the install of the air app, and install it if it is not present.

       

      This old forum post indicates it's not possible, but I'm hoping this has changed in Air 2?

      If not I'm thinking my best bet is to launch a browser window that links to the acrobat install site, when the acrobat reader is needed, any other ideas on how to handle this?

       

      Thanks,
