I would like to get the path of acrobat reader for any unix pc.

right now the path of acrobat reader is hardcoded

BEGIN

if :global.system = 'HP-UX' then
HOST('/opt/Acrobat4/bin/acroread /export/USERGUIDE.pdf');
else
v_path := 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\acrobat\shell\open\command';
v_msg := Win_Api_Environment.Read_Registry(v_path,'',true);
APPID := DDE.APP_BEGIN(v_msg,DDE.App_Mode_NORMAl);

end if;
END;



Like in windows i can code to open acrobat reader whatever the windows with registry

" v_path := 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\acrobat\shell\open\command'; "

is there a way to indicate the same thing for acrobat in unix?

I'm not the admin on the unix machine.

thanks you!

Which Unix?

You're probably trying to do something you shouldn't have to. If you just need to add the above to your path, just issue (and add to your user init scripts):
Code: [ Select ]
export PATH=$PATH:/opt/Acrobat4/bin/


Still, look here for an installer: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/r ... sions.html
