Acrobat 9 Pro Extended and Presenter 7 activation issue
Problem Area : User has a valid Acrobat 9 Pro Extended license for Windows Platform .
He downloads and installs the Presenter installer(which supports installation on Office 2010) from Adobe website but is not able to activate Presenter.
Acrobat 9 Pro Extended comes bundled with Adobe Presenter 7. However when user tries to install Presenter 7 from Acrobat installer on a system that has Office 2010, the presenter installer throws an error saying that PowerPoint is not detected
The issue here is that the Presenter installer that was bundled along with Acrobat 9 Pro Extended build did not support installation on Office 2010 systems
In that case if the user can go to Adobe website and downloads the installer of Presenter 7 which supports installation on Office 2010 systems. He is able to install the same on an Office 2010 system but activation does not happen using the Acrobat 9 Pro Extended key
Workaround: If the user has a valid Acrobat 9 Pro Extended license for Windows platform, then he can activate Presenter 7 in the following manner
1) Install Acrobat 9 Pro Extended and activate it on the machine on which you want to install and activate Presenter
2) Download the installer of Presenter that supports installation on Office 2010 from Adobe website and install the same in TRIAL mode
3) Close Presenter and go to Presenter installation directory (<drive>Program FilesAdobePresenter 7) and go inside AMT folder
4) Rename AdobeConfig.xml and application.sif files
5) Relaunch Presenter
Presenter installer will sniff the system for a valid Acrobat 9 Pro Extended license and will automatically get activated
