We routinely send out our documents on CDs in PDF format.

We downloaded a copy of each version (Win, Mac, Unix, OS/2) of Acrobat
Reader and include these packages on the CD so that our customers can
immediately load it if they need it to view the documents.

This way we don't need to make the assumption that they have internet
access.

Hello, all!

My company is putting PDF files on CD and the audience
doesn't necessarily have Reader already installed. Is
there a plug-in or something that I can download from somewhere
that does one of two things:

searches the PC to see if Reader is there and auto-installs the
program if it's not

OR

launches straight into a welcome.PDF file if Reader already
exists

I know it wouldn't take a ton of programming to do this, but I'm
a tech
writer and our programmers are up to their "eyeballs" in
alligators right
now.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
