Adobe Reader 9 and Adobe Acrobat 9 do support the use of group policies for configuring these applications. However, I cannot find anywhere that Adobe provides an ADM file with the settings and descriptions that allow these group policy settings to be easily configured and applied. So i made my own ADM file, which I now share with you. i have tested most of these settings and they work very well.

To get your own ADM file, create a new TXT file and name it Adobe9.adm. Then copy all of the text below out of this posting and paste it into your ADM file. Enjoy!

It appears that the ADM file may have been truncated. Send me an e-mail at pattersonrichardr@johndeere.com and I will send the ADM file to you via e-mail.

Thank you.

By the way: Do you think it's possible to silently apply all (or part of all) these via a .REG file?
