Need list of computers where Adobe Reader or Acrobat is the default PDF program

Most of our computers have Kofax Power PDF installed. A number of PCs also have Adobe (Reader or Acrobat) installed. For the vast majority of PCs, Kofax is the default PDF program, but a small number of PCs have Adobe as default. I need a list of computers where Adobe Reader or Acrobat is the default PDF program. Is this possible in Lansweeper?

Hi,

I haven't tested but if you setup a new registry scan to scan the registry key :

"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.pdf\UserChoice"

And a REGvalue of "ProgID" , this should give you a list of the default applications for opening PDF files for each User / Computer, below is the Lansweeper instructions for scanning Registry Keys
