I'd echo Syed's point here -
We Tech Pubs folk have a habit of repeating something Dov Isaac's said over a
decade ago like it's some kind of holy writ,
but 10 computer years is about a century in real years ;) Things may well (and
certainly ought to) have changed since then.
I'd like to see a list of the actual DLLs and registry entries and blah blah
that are involved before accepting that Adobe still haven't fixed this.
(lol but then again, there are so many corners of FrameMaker that Adobe haven't
fixed since they ported it off the NeXT, so who am I trying to kid... ;) )
The standard solution for this kind of issue is to have a virtual machine on
which to test your customer experience.
If you have Windows 8, it comes with "Microsoft HyperV" built in, you can
create a virtual machine with a few clicks, install Reader in it, and play away
to your hearts content. (Shock news: Windows 8 actually does have some useful
new features in it, see? :) )
Another handy free virtual machine is Oracle's www.virtualbox.org
Give one of these a try and never mess up your precious working environment

I guess my reaction is that the information from Dov at that link you found is
from 2004 - almost ten years ago... on Windows 98 and Windows XP systems
The results may be quite different today perhaps? Or maybe it is my approach of
always installing Acrobat after Reader ...
<shrug> Works for me (and I ain't boasting ... merely reporting. :) :))
