Sharepoint PDF Document Prompting User to Checkout when it Shouldn't

by 26. August 2013 15:54

We had issues with PDF documents on Sharepoint that were prompting the average "View Only" users to check-out the document.  If they actually attempted to check-out the document they could not; however, this was cofusing to the users.  The desired effect was to have the document open directly into the PDF viewer.  Below are some registry settings that seemed to clear this issue up in most cases.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\11.0\FeatureLockDown\cSharePoint]
"bDisableSharePointFeatures"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\10.0\FeatureLockDown\cSharePoint]
"bDisableSharePointFeatures"=dword:00000001
