I'm assuming this is a long shot, but maybe someone else has tried this.

What we are trying to do is release Adobe Acrobat Reader DC to our end users, but we want to hide the tools that require an upgrade to Acrobat Standard or Pro.

What I have learned is that inside C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroApp\ENU a series .aapp files are available.

I have been able to do the following.

  • If I delete AppCenter_R.aapp, Home.aapp, and Viewer.aapp I can remove the Tools and Home option completely. (The buttons stay, but they don't launch anything)
  • I have also figured if you leave those three files, but remove the other .aapp files that from the tools menu Export PDF, Combine PDF, Send & Track, Certificates, and Send for Signature will no longer be available in the tools menu.
  • I've also discovered from what I can tell Adobe is pulling this base menu from Application xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/acrobat/app/2014" title="Tools" id="ToolsCenter" majorVersion="1" minorVersion="0"
    • AppCentre_R.aapp then calls <Component name="AppCenterView" type="Custom"/>
    • Viewer.aapp  then calls <Component name="AppShortcutListView" type="Custom"/>

So what I am trying to do/get is hard copies or the code from these files so I can enhance them to meet our companies needs.

I think you may be trying to hack the product in a way that's unnecessary. Just disable services and upsell via the Wizard or through manual registry config.
