Work around an Adobe 8 Reader self-healing annoyance
Authored by: kyngchaos on Dec 11, '06 09:51:43AM

Er, if it's invisible, it's still there. Or are you just concerned with not *seeing* it there?

Somewhat related to the comments about moving apps around, or not installing them at all (ie the selfheal patch): if you ever did need help for Reader, you wouldn't get it. Reader needs it exactly where it puts it (bad programming, really), so if it's moved someplace else it won't find it.

If you really don't want Adobe's help viewer, but want the option of Help in Reader, another way would be to do the selfheal patch, then in a Terminal (you may need to prefix this with sudo):

ln -sfh "/System/Library/CoreServices/Help Viewer.app" "/Applications/Adobe Help Viewer 1.0.app"

This will view Reader help in Apple's help viewer.

Hi,

could you please explain this a little bit more. I've tried this in terminal, but without positive result.

Thanks
rakader
