  • how to install acrobat reader

    It seems a very commen question is about acrobat reader. How to check to see if installed, install it, then open a pdf document. It's very easy to do. Below you will find out what happens when you click on a pdf file link. This will check for acrobat, install it if not found, then open a pdf document. All of these commmands are located on the mouse click tab.

    ......VARIABLE -- READ FROM REGISTRY......
    NAME: %PDFINSTALL%
    DEFAULT: NO
    MAIN KEY: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
    SUB KEY: .PDF
    VALUE NAME: CONTENT TYPE
    .......MESSAGE -- YES/NO DIALOG.........
    NAME: %INSTALL%
    CAPTION: MESSAGE
    MESSAGE: THIS WILL INSTALL ACROBAT
    READER
    BOOLEAN: %PDFINSTALL% = NO
    .......EXECUTE PROGRAM.........
    FILE NAME: %SRCDRV%\ARINSTALL.EXE
    WAIT FOR RETURN -- CHECKED
    BOOLEAN: %PDFINSTALL% = NO
    %INSTALL% = YES
    .......VARIABLE -- READ FROM REGISTRY......
    NAME: %PDFINSTALLYET%
    DEFAULT: NO
    MAIN KEY: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
    SUB KEY: .PDF
    VALUE NAME: CONTENT TYPE
    ......OPEN DOCUMENT........
    FILE NAME: %SRCDRV%\DOCUMENT.PDF
    BOOLEAN: %PDFINSTALLYET% <> NO

    *make sure for this example that the install for acrobat reader is called arinstall.exe, and the document you want to open is called document.pdf

    Hope this helps. In case it is still confusing, you can email me for a sample of this menu to be sent via zip-file. File size is less than 400 k

    DallasFreak,

    Thanks for the good post, I guess a knowledge base article on this would be handy?? I'll look into it.

      Think it would. I'll email you the simple am3 file to doo it with. Maybe a way to post on this site, like a flash simulator or something to that effect, or even a simple download.
      I've already emailed it to 3 different people in the last week, hugely popular question.
