    David Tetrault, if your idea works and Adobe doesn't engineer around it, thank you very much!

    I completely agree with those who point out the need for developers to be able to do this, but I have a different (non-dev) 'beef' with this issue.

    We have purchased 3 licenses for Pro for our organization for those who need those features. We have a couple of users who only need Reader (all of our other users use a competitor to Pro, because we need unrelated functionality of theirs).

    One of the Reader-only users' installations corrupted recently. I uninstalled completely and then reinstalled their Reader. Adobe automatically upgraded them to Pro. They never had Pro to begin with. Adobe must have recognized the same public-facing IP for the company and decided to treat all company users as subscribers. That is insane! If they think we will now be forced to subscribe for that user to continue reading PDF's, they are even more insane!

    If they allowed both apps to co-exist, I would simply leave the user signed out of Pro and make Reader the default app for PDF's and the problem would be solved.

    This is not just an issue for dev's, unfortunately.
