Hello Community

 

We’re trying to deploy the latest version of Adobe Reader DC (20.006.20034) and having difficulties disabling the “Welcome to Acrobat Reader DC!” page. For those who work in the Govt. sector, this option must be disabled as it counts as a STIG finding.

 

With version 19.012.20036, we’ve used this setting in the past that seem to work:

 

Utilizing the Registry Editor, navigate to the following: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown\cWelcomeScreen

 

Value Name: bShowWelcomeScreen

Type: REG_DWORD

Value: 0

 

With the latest version, this setting seems to get ignored. We’ve tried several different settings from the Adobe Windows Registry Reference page to disable the welcome screen, but nothing seems to work.

 

Please, we need assistance with this so we can deploy the latest version. Also, we deploy Adobe Reader DC via SCCM as an enterprise solution and use the Acrobat Customization Wizard to set all the necessary settings.

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance
