I'm trying to do a custom install of Adobe Reader DC using the customization wizard. I would like to set some HKCU registry keys to disable certain things in Reader DC. For some reason, the registry keys are not being set in HKCU after the install. There's a similar thread here https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1849422, but according to Rave, an Adobe employee, this issue was resolve with the latest version of the Customization Wizard. I tried and I'm still experiencing the same issue. I don't know if this matters, but I'm trying to install Adobe Reader DC on a 64bit Windows 7 Enterprise machine.

Customization version is 15.010.20056. HKCU keys have been set in customization wizard.

After the install, the RegistryHiveName key is still present in HKLM\Software\wow6432Node\Adobe\Acrobat Reader

None of the HKCU entries are added after launching Reader DC for the first time.

Any help would be really appreciated.
