I am developing a C++ Acrobat plugin responsible for opening of secured PDFs from secured on disk location. To provide good user expierience I would like to add / remove the secured PDF file entries from the recent file list. I am unable to find any C++ Acrobat SDK API which will allow to get and update the list of recent file list. Is there any such APIs which I can use? or any other ideas about how I can provide this functionality?
Any leads will help. Thanks in advance.

I don't think there is any such API. If there is no API you cannot affect the list in any way.

That list is saved in the Registry. If your plugin can read/write registry settings then it should be possible to do it.

Maybe not with the new sandboxing.

Thank you tried this, and noticed that the entries are cached in memory when the application is running and will rewrite the entire recently used section when ever Adobe Acrobat is about to exit. Hence need to first quit the Adobe Acrobat and then write the registry and then open the application again. Do you see any other method where I can make the registry changes without quitting the Acrobat application?
