Using the debugger with Adobe Reader
For Windows, note that this procedure involves editing the registry. Adobe Systems Incorporated does not provide support for editing the registry, which contains critical system and application information. It is recommended that you back up the registry before modifying it.
- Create key/value pairs in the registry settings, starting at the location HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\JSPrefs\ on Windows as shown in the table below, or in the property list file :Library:Preferences:com.adobe.Reader9.0.plist on Mac OS.
For Mac OS, use an appropriate editor for the property list file, and add the following children under JSPrefs, using Type “Array” in each case: ConsoleOpen, ConsoleInput, EnableDebugger, and Exceptions. Under each of these children, add the following children: 0 (number) and 1 (boolean).
(This will break into the Debugger when exceptions occur.)
