ok, here is what I have: - Adobe 8 Standard on 10 computers with the same configuration - Reviewing setup with an url (intranet) this setting can be made from inside the preferences or via registry keys. this settings disappear whenever the users close adobe. thats why we push them with a simple batch on every logon. batch: @ECHO OFF IF EXIST "%ProgramFiles%\Adobe\Acrobat 8.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe" %WINDIR%\REG.EXE ADD "HKCU\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\8.0\Collab\cServerSettings" /V "tDAVFDF" /T REG_SZ /D "intranet.company.com/comments/" /F & GOTO END the problem is that if the users closes adobe and re-opens it later the setting is gone until they log in again. I would like to find out why this setting always disappears and how to make permanent. any ideas? I could make it a scheduled task that runs every minute but thats too cheap.
