I've figured out how to use the 'Launch Associated Application' Action to bring up the manuals on my CD - no probs - *IF* the user has Adobe Reader installed.

However, I've read there's a way to get the 'Launch Application' Action to launch 'acrord32.exe' from my CD and call the .pdf file in the command line. Thus, not worrying if the user has Adobe Reader installed or not.

I can't get this to work.

CD:
startcd.exe
autorun.inf
..\adobe\acrord32.exe
..\bin\demo32.exe
..\doc\bunchof.pdf

Launch Application:
<path>..\adobe\acrord32.exe<path>
Command:
<path>..\doc\bunchof.pdf<path>

Any comments/suggestions?

Sorry - figured it out - just copy *ALL* the files from an installed 'Reader' directory into the 'adobe' folder on my CD.

However, does somebody know what files I can do without? I've got lots of .dll files (3.3Mb!):

AceLite.dll
Acrofx.dll
Agm.dll
Bib.dll
CoolType.dll
WHA Library.dll

Thanks,
