    Anybody else want to test this for me then and let me know if they've released a product capable of handling PDF files over a network this time, then?

    I'm morbidly intrigued to see what they've broken, but not that intrigued.

    Reader X, on release, couldn't open files over a UNC path in sandbox mode. The only way to fix it was to disable the sandbox, which then defeated the point of upgrading to v10.

    (It also had problems with Securus but that was more to do with Securus than Adobe, I think)

    By sandbox, are you referring to 'Protected mode'?

    What new hell is this?? How many GB does it take, how many minutes does it take to boot. Will it work on a machine that has even heard of a network. How many UPM (updates per minute) can I expect.

    Yup. Didn't get sorted until a point release.

    I gave up inflicting Adobe Reader on 99% of my users long ago. There's plenty of other PDF readers that do a good enough job without the bloat and constant patches.

    The best thing about Adobe Reader XI is the speed. It is now just as fast as SumatraPDF (and much faster than Nitro Reader), so I think I may switch back.
