    PDF (metadata) is not displayed in WIN7 Windows Explorer

    PHansen19 Level 1

      The PDF Tab (metadata) does not get displayed (such as: Title, Author, Subject, Keywords) when viewed in Win7 Windows Explorer.

      This information is displayed when you view the Properties information via Adobe Reader (v9.4).


      This is causing issues with our document management.

      When looking around at various blogs this is all I have found:

      Adobe implemented in pdfshell.dll an ActiveX interface called IColumnProvider, and Microsoft dropped support for this interface in Windows Vista (replacing it with something called the Property System). So, the PDF Title column feature didn't go away with Windows7, it went away with Windows Vista. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb776831%2 8VS.85%29.aspx


      Has pdfshell.dll been updated to provide the Property System interface that Vista and Windows 7 require? See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb776859 %28v=VS.85%29.aspx


      Has anyone else experience this and is there a valid work around?
