  • Foxit Reader Enterprise Edition missing component error

    After creating the update package and testing, I am getting this error. I used the fct tool to modify the .msi before hand. The settings I am using are (In General) 1. Set as default PDF viewer. 2. Show PDF files in browser. 3. Disable Auto Update. (In Features) 1. I leave all settings as default. (In Shortcuts) 1. I uncheck desktop icon.
    Those are the only .msi changes I use. I also have group policy disabling connected PDF usage.
    The only fix I have found is to uninstall it, then install manually by hand.
    The error occurs on startup of Foxit PDF reader. The user can just click ok and it seems to work normally.

    Had to contact support due to no response here. Development is aware of the issue and will have a fix in the next major release. In the meantime, they advised to set a reg key.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader 8.0\ConnectedPDF]
