Reader 9.1: registry persmissions modified causing issues with Internet Explorer

Issue

Installing Reader 9.1 modifies Registry permissions for key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\{34A715A0-6587-11D0-924A-0020AFC7AC4D} from “Full Control” to “Read“.  This modification prevents a successful installation in enterprise environments where customized installer files are used. The mentioned key is a part of the Internet Explorer installation and applications that work with the web browser events use it.

The Access Control List for this key before installation is as follows:

BUILTIN\Users=Read

BUILTIN\Power Users=Special

BUILTIN\Administrators=FullControl

NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM=FullControl

CREATOR OWNER=FullControl

Following installation it has been changed to:

BUILTIN\Administrators=Read

NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM=FullControl

Everyone=Read

Solution

Upgrade to Adobe Reader 9.4 or Adobe Reader X.  Do a full installation of one of these versions to apply the fix.

As a workaround, you can modify the MST file with Customization Wizard to prevent the permissions on this key being changed.
