I am using LC ES 8.0.



Is there a way to program Workspace to use a specific version of Reader? I want it to open Acrobat Reader version 8 or higher.



We have a few problems with some other older software that several hundred users are using and it requires them to use Acrobat Standard v6. I want to push Reader 8 to everyone and can specify that Standard or Pro are default if available but I want to make Workspace specifically use Reader version 8 or higher.



Does anyone know if this can be done programatically in Workspace?



Thanks,



John

Once way to do it is if the process you are invoking uses the Render PDF Form, or a custom Render process that includes the renderPDFForm operation (from the Forms service), you can change a setting using the Acrobat Version property to Acrobat and Adobe Reader 8 or later.



You can get more details about the renderPDFForm operation and the Acrobat Version property at http://livedocs.adobe.com/livecycle/8.2/wb_help/000614.html.



Hope that helps!

The only reliable way to do it is to add Javascript into your form.
