Hi all, the issue is as follows.Maths text books in PDF format contain embedded links to other PDF files (for activities) and also embedded links to Flash and Executable files (for interactive activities).Previous versions of Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader allowed these embedded links to be opened (by Staff and Students alike), however now there are security prompts such as:"This document is trying to access:<filepath is here>\filename.pdfIf you trust this document, choose Allow. If you do not trust this document, choose Block" and also "Could not open <folder name>/filename.exe"when "Enable Protected Mode at startup" and "Enable Enhanced Security" are enabled.However when both are disabled, linked PDF documents open correctly, but when attempting to open links to executables the following message appears:"This file is set to be launched by this PDF file. This is currently disallowed by your system administrator.File: <path to file>\filename.exe" Can anyone shed some light on how to enable the embedded links again? This is currently affecting 300 machines in a school environment and preventing students from learning, so any and all assistance is appreciated.
