Will iProtectedView=2 allow cTrustedFolders?

In my environment (Windows Domain, Windows 10 clients) Acrobat Reader is hardened to the max, settings are applied via GPO

Protected View=2, JavaScript disabled etc.

We do receive PDF files with include JavaScripts and are a kind of automated forms.

Some of these our users need to handle, disregarding the hardening.

While reading I assumed I needed to add the TrustManager key, and then  below the cTrustedFolders.

Now, while still reading, it became more foggy, should I just add f.i. a string named T3 with value \\sharelocation\sharename\folder, or should I add first a key like cAlwaysTrustedForJavaScripts, and in there a string named T3 etc.??? I tried all of these, including to do this at HKCU, HKLM ( and then, Software\Adobe, or Software\Policies\Adobe or adding WOW6432node... enough choices). But none of these work.

Yes when I change iProtectedView to 1, things work, but none of the TrustManager keys will be used then.

I also tried to add cTrustedFolders with a string, and the variant with cAlwaysTrustedForJavaScripts and a string to FeatureLockDown, also does not work.

The main question, does iProtectedView=2 work correct with any PL setup via cTrustedFolders, or not.

[Question moved to the Enterprise Deployment (Acrobat and Reader) forum. -Mod.]
