How to display PDFs in Adobe Reader instead of IE
I seem to be caught in a catch-22 situation with this!
We use many links to PDF documents within our PPT/Presenter application. In a default machine, both WXP and W7, Presenter opens the PDF file inside Internet Explorer. I found that you I can change Adobe Reader to prevent this ( In Adobe Reader, -> Edit / Preferences / Internet). After changing this setting the PDFs open directly in Adobe Reader - although it seems to briefly open IE before displaying the document. So far so good, although it will be a nuisance to have to change this on each user's machine.
But now comes the problem: I have also linked to PDF documents from blank pages inserted into Quizmaker quizzes, (which are included within Presenter modules) so that they appear at the correct point in the quiz. After changing Adobe Reader as above these PDFs no longer display - There is a brief flash from IE, a small sound and then it closes, and nothing is displayed. Changing the Adobe Preferences back fixes the problem, and the document displays - but inside the browser.
There seems to be too much interaction between Adobe Reader and Internet Explorer...
Any bright thoughts out there?
