Foxit Reader packaging

I have packaged Foxit Reader 4.2. I have set it up as a Active Setup with Advertised shortcuts in case someone requests it to be installed and starts it right away without logging off. Anyway, I have what I thought captured the "DisplayinBrowser" setting in the registry and imported it into the MSI. When i do deploy it the setting is shown in the system it was deployed to but after a browser is open as a pdf file it still shows adobe reader as the previewer. I made sure that the CLASSES ROOT file extension for PDF shows Foxit as its previewer  but still nothing. Is there any other setting that needs to be changed?

If you have/had another PDF preview handler installed, such as Adobe or PDF-XChange, then whichever handler was installed last will usually be the one which is used. Try doing an uninstall and re-install of Foxit so that it takes over the PDF preview handler registration.

Did you change .pdf under HKClasses Root, or pdffile?

well....as I have been working to an almost packaged (the way I want it) foxit...I come in this morning and a new version is available.
The packaging is much easier on this version. The only hiccup now is when i open a browser window it asks to download "foxitreaderocx control module ActiveX".
it gets installed in the installation directory. I have it part of the .msi to install and its there...but i guess for IE integration it wants to ask. I don't want users to freak out when it asks them to install something.

Any chance you can add the browser page it is loading as a Trusted Site, and tweak the security of the Trusted Zone to be a little less visible on that request?
