How to set configuration with Registrykeys

Post by pltulm » Wed Jan 29, 2014 10:50 am

Hello,
we are using PDF-Xchange Pro 5.0.273.1 64 Bit on some Terminalservers.
We used the msi-package with parameters
msiexec /i PDFXC5Pro_x64.msi /quiet ADDLOCAL="F_Drivers,F_Langs_Drv,F_Wizard,F_Help_Wiz,F_Langs_Wiz,F_Viewer,F_VLangs,F_BrowserPlugins,F_IEPlugin,F_NPPlugin,F_Plugins,F_OCRPlugin,F_Plugin_SP,F_FileOpenPlugin,F_ShellExt" PNAME="PDF-XChange" USERNAME="Our Company" ORGANIZATION="Our Company" KEY="Our Licence Key" SET_AS_DEFAULT=1 VIEWER_IN_BROWSERS=1 /lv!*x %computername%_PDFXCPro_x64.log

After Installation PDF-Xchange Editor is already the default viewer. But when a user starts PDF-Xchange Editor the user is prompted if he wants to make PDF-Xchange the default PDF-Viewer.
How can I deactivate the checkbox "Notify when PDF-Xchange Editor is not default PDF-Application" in "Preferences" - "File Associations"
Is there a registrykey available?

Another prompt is shown, when the users try to start printing.
"Some pages will not printed completely because they are outside of available print area. Tip: try to set the Auto-Rotate Page on Paper option before printing or/and set the Choose Paper Size by Documents Page Sizeoption.
Do you want to continue printing?
%Checkbox% Don't show in furure"

How can I deavtivate this message? Is there a registry key available?

with many thanks in advance

Hello pltulm,

These user choises should be stored in:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tracker Software\PDFXEditor\3.0\Settings\Prompts

b.AskForDefaultApp = 0
b.PrintCroppedPagesWarn = 0

Regards,
Stefan

Hi,
thank you it works great.
Dio you have a documentation where I can see other available regkeys?
Do you know if there are plans to use Windospolicys in future releases?
Thanks in advance.

Hi pltulm,

Glad to hear that, and no I don't have a list with all editor prompts yet, but any prompt for which the "do not show again" checkbox has been clicked should be recorded in the same place.

I am not 100% sure what Windospolicys is - can you elaborate a bit please?

Regards,
Stefan

I think he mean "Group Policy":

And it would be really cool if you support some of the important options as GPO. :)

As admin you can use "Group Policy Templates" to set this thinks in your company:

Hi gerundt,

Thanks for the clarification. I believe our devs have some plans for such support, but when and how that would be implemented is up to them and I don't have any specifics at the moment.

Regards,
Stefan
