Installation and upgrade change request re: Adobe Reader
Change Request: 1310-1220480
When running SIMSInst.exe it installs Adobe Reader with no option to deselect it. We use FoxIT PDF reader in school and have zero need for an extra install of an unwanted product. The installer SHOULD be checking the registry to see if there is software registered for the .pdf filetype, but instead it appears to be simply looking for Adobe Reader itself, and installs it if not present which smacks of lazy practices. SIMS is introducing new unwanted software to a production environment when this is completely avoidable.
Has anybody else found this, or is there a workaround to block the Adobe Reader install? Thanks.
