Adobe 9.0 Standard in Citrix Presenations Server 4.5

I have published this program thru the Ctirx Access Management console.  All is working fine, except that any user can open up a PDF document with the full program.  The user would have to right click on the PDF document and go to Open with, but they can choose Adobe 9.0 (not just Adobe Reader 9.0) and have access to all the tools.  The user these attached pics are from DOESN'T have permission to use the Adobe 9.0 program . Pic: #1 shows that a non-adobe 9.0 std. user can open up any PDF with Full Adobe, not just Adobe Reader.  #2 Shows the published application for Adobe 9.0 basic user property.

I would like ONLY the users with Adobe 9.0 permission to be able to choose Adobe 9.0.  Any help would be much appreciated.

This is more of an OS related limitation not a Citrix one. There is no easy way to do this without breaking functionality for your valid Adobe Standard users.

The one thing you can do is change the file permissions on the Adobe Acrobat executable to make sure only Administrators and your Adobe Standard user group can execute the file

This will allow Adobe Reader to work for everyone, while the Adobe Standard will only launch for your Administrators and the users in your Adobe Standard group. This won't remove the Adobe Acrobat from Open With - but if a non-approved user tries to launch it, the executable won't launch for them

Browse to your Acrobat executable Right Click it and Left Click Properties
Security Tab, Remove everyone except:
Administrators (Full Control)
System (Full Control)
Add:
BBI\Adobe 9.0 (Read and Read & Execute)

Will my Adobe 9.0 users be able to use all the tools in the program if they only have Read and Read & Execute?

I assume the BBI\Adobe 9.0 group grants access to the Adobe Writer, while all your other groups have access to Adobe Reader only? If that's the case then yes, all your "Adobe 9.0" users will have access to Reader as well as Acrobat Writer - while none of your other users will have access to Acrobat Writer(unless they are server administrators) but will have access to Acrobat Reader.

I found out that I did need to give my Adobe 9.0 users Modify and Write also to be able to do what they needed to do.  You were a super help. A+. Thanks.
