    To be honest I had loads of issues with Adobe Reader. In the end I just removed it and installed FoxIT PDF Reader instead.

    I also have to say that FoxIT fires up so much quicker too!

    We have this with teacher laptops. We found that they need the "My Settings" folder made available offline for Adobe Reader to work disconnected.

    I suspect, unless the machine is built as a laptop type, you wont get Offline folders, and being disconnected means the machine has no My Documents folder for Adobe to reference to.

    Is it a laptop or desktop you have disconnected?

    If its a desktop, you could either build as a laptop, or you might be able to create a custom type to also allow offline folders.

    Within a custom type, the section "Microsoft Offline File" will let you enable it on that type.

  10. Thanks to Hawkeyez from:

    Hawkeyez is correct. You have to build the PC as a "laptop".

    If you don't build it as a laptop just go into the management console and change the workstation type to laptop and then restart the laptop(s).

    There's little that Foxit can't do that Adobe Reader can, unless you were not on about Reader at all. Adobe Reader is so full of **** I'm surprised it hasn't yet vanished off the face of IT.

    Good point. I knew that, but for some reason reason my fingers didn't type what my brain was thinking when I wrote my post.
