I'm wondering if it is possible to programmatically change the default PDF reader in Windows 2000/XP/Vista.
For example, if the default reader was Foxit, could an application that sends Adobe-style "Open Parameters" ( see http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/acrobat/PDFOpenParameters.pdf
) change the default reader to Adobe?
Whether or not Adobe is installed is another issue I'm not concerned with at this time.
If it is possible I don't need all the gory details, but I do need enough information so I can write sufficiently detailed instructions for a developer.
I'm hoping it's as simple as Registry edit.
