    Why does anything done by adobe involve an additional layer of bloatware that slows down the computer and leaves it vulnerable to a bunch of exploits. They make Microsoft look good.

    We changed Adobe Reader for Foxit I'm just sick of the updates being so large and frequent.

    I think we have some software that REQUIRES adobe reader to be installed.

    Did you modify the foxit msi much??

    I haven't come across many things that 'require' Adobe Reader, I know the Parcel Farce website requires it so I've just put it on the two PC's in reception that need that.

    The msi didn't need much tweaking a file called FoxitReader_Preferences.ini is created on first run in C:\Program Files\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader, I just created an msi to deploy that but it could be scripted. The only thing this does is turn off the autoupdate, I set it to the default reader in the user profile and it seems to work fine. We've been running it for over 6 months now.

    Accelerated reader from renaissance learning needs Adobe reader to be installed.

    We were quite happily using foxit until the school singed up for this. Now we have to use the adobe bloatware.

    Do you mean the installed program Accelerated Reader, or their website 'Renaissance place'? If the latter, we use it on our Mac's without Adobe Reader just fine.

    I swapped Adobe Reader out for Foxit during the great rebuild of last summer. The only problem I have with Foxit is that it is Sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow to print, expecially in colour!

    Could end up going back to Adobe bloatware just to regain sensible print time for PDF docs. Google search suggests its been a known issue for 2 or 3 years now.

    I do mean the web based version from renlearn.

    It will not work on a PC without adobe reader installed. Apparently, if Renaissance Learning get enough complaints about it, they MAY look into getting it to work with Foxit.

    Does anyone know if this suffers from the same (known) bug where it doesn't like roaming profiles?

    EDIT: In the 9.1 Release notes it says "Roaming Profiles on Windows and Networked Home Directory on Macintosh are not supported configurations for 9.0 or 9.1, however we have made several fixes in 9.1. We are looking at the possibility of supporting this for the next major release."
    I can't find any mention in the 9.2 Release Notes...
