Citrix XenApp 5
Windows 2003
Adobe Reader 9 (Swedish version)
We do have the following issue:
On a published desktop opened from the webinterface you are unable to open a pdf file from an Intranet site. It doesn't matter if you try it with an admin account or a normal user account. The pdf is trying to open in a new browser window and an error occurs.
EM: There was a problem with Adobe Acrobat/Reader. Quit Adobe Acrobat/Reader and try again.
When closing the error and browser window and click the pdf link on the site again, it opens in a new browser window.
Uncheck "display pdf in browser" in Adobe Reader is not an option for the customer.
When copying the shortcut to the pdf and paste it in a browser window it opens.
When connecting to the server with an admin account or a normal user account using RDP the issue does not occur. However it seems to be a Citrix issue and I have posted it on the Citrix forum, I post it here as well in the hope to get this solved..

The best answer: Check the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Software\Adobe\Acrobat\Exe
Here check the default value. On an english machine, it has to be set to:
"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe"
If you installed Adobe reader to a different directory, enter the path where "AcroRd32.exe" is to be found.
