How to insert an EXE link in Reader X

Due to a recent and continuous companywide upgrade to Reader X, PDF files used as Presentations-no longer launch exe links due to security restrictions. Does anyone know how this can be done without changing the software's registry keys?

It can't. That would be a huge security risk.

The security risk also applies to ".com", ".bat" and ".js" files along with any other executable file. You could open a document. There are also "safe path" restrictions.
