We are looking to have reader and acrobat pro co-installed on the same Remote Desktop Session Host server.  Users who had a license for Acrobat would use that product, while all others users would utilize reader. I understand the suggested license structure, however why do Reader users have to be licensed? Do they still need a license even though they are not power users who need "Acrobat's" functionality? Can I license only power users and still have "Reader" users access the program without authentication?

The users who use the Reader will not need a licensed version at all. So no need of a license.

Whereas the users that are granted permission to use Adobe Acrobat Pro need a license and they need to be allowed permission to use it.

Alternatively, people can use a browser app as well if they just want to view a PDF.

 

I hope this information helps!

Regards.

But when a user logs on and double clicks a PDF will Adobe Reader open for unlicensed users and Acrobat DC Pro for licensed users?
