    Adobe Reader X EULA agreement issues


      This has been commented on before, but I have a few other things to add we have seen at our company.

      Issue 1:

      Cannot open emailed pdf attachment or any PDF locally that contains the uppercase Letters "CR" in the title.

      Three workarounds:

      1. Have Adobe Reader opened first before opening the pdf file attachment.

      2. Save and rename the file—removing the uppercase CR.


      3. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\10.0\FeatureLockDown]




      Options 1 and 2 are not a good solution for the mass public when you may have 100's of thousands of files that contain CR. Option 3 we cannot use because of a conflict with SAP software we use.




      Issue 2:

      There may be a Adobe "Best Practices" article I missed, but this was the first major issue we had with clients running both Acrobat and Reader on the same computer.



      Is there any sort of patch expected from Adobe to correct these?
