Hi, just moved this thread to where it should be...
I'm trying to configure options for a firm wide install of Reader X.
I'm wanting to disable the "use share pane when sending email attachment" option via the registry (this'll be done via scriptlogic).
I've found some online guides that explain how to do this, but they all reference this key:
But in the registries of PCs that Reader is installed on, the 'workflows' folder isn't there - I have Adobe Viewer, Installer, InstallPath and Language visible.
I've created an entry in the registry for the key and set the value to 0 as outlined in the quote below:
|That key disables ALL of Acrobat.com services. If you want to disable just the share pane:|
That value is a DWORD and setting it to 0 disables the feature.
Machine policy location to scrobat.com in 10.0
HKLM\Software\Adobe\(product name)\(version)\Workflows >
bEnableShareFile (Toggles file upload and sharing via Acrobat.com)
bEnableRTCAuth (Toggles live collaboration and screen sharing.)
bEnableDocCtrInit (Toggles initiation of shared reviews and forms.)
I've not yet added the extra strings to the registry, does anyone know if these will be necessary for disabling the share pane or not?
No they are not, but to say that HKLM\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\10.0\Workflows\bEnableShareFile=0 only affects the Share pane is incorrect. It will remove the Share Pane and all the Acrobat.com service hooks from the right side of the Welcome Screen, leaving only a list of recent files (note that the adverts along the bottom of the Welcome Screen remain active).
