Hi all,

How can I launch Acrobat Reader from a InstallScript?

I have tried to use LaunchApp, but that doesn't work.

How does LaunchApp fail? You should be able to use LaunchApp or ShellExecute to handle this...

There is a (rather old) sample called "Find and Launch Acrobat Reader" at http://www.installsite.org/pages/en/isp_ext.htm . Maybe this could help you.

That (old) sample worked, apparently, fine.

Does anyone have any knowledge about it (the sample), does it work on any (Windows-)OS, any version of Acrobat, and so forth??
