Has anyone installed Adobe Reader 10.1 in a citrix published desktop?

I am preparing to test an Adobe Reader 10.1 deployment in our citrix environment but I was curious to know if anyone has encountered a problem with Protected Mode in Adobe.  The last version of Adobe Reader X had trouble running in Citrix when "Protected Mode" at startup was enabled.  According the Adobe's documentation Reader Version 10.1 has corrected that problem and supports Terminal Server implementations.  But i just wanted to be sure before I installed our modified msi / mst package.

Yes, I've implmented this a few times over the last couple of months without any issues, on Windows 2003 with Citrix, 2008 RTM and 2008 R2 and their associated PS/XenApp's.

One bit of advice (sorry if this is preaching to the converted) is I'd get hold of the customization tool and create an installer that has no autoupdater, connection to the web etc - makes a much slicker install with, in my experiences, far fewer issues.

Thank you Tony - i will move forward with my first phase of testing on a stand alone xenapp server.  

also, I agree regarding the customized installer - i have modified the install package to include an .mst using the customization tool.  

thanks again
