What the value under the .pdf key in the registry currently set to. Mine is:
Also verify HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FoxitReader.Document is there.
The message is related to IE security settings - Allow active content to run files on My Computer.
I don't want to to enable this option. There other settings to use Foxit Reader to preview pdf files in EPDM?
I don't think so, pretty sure that will always block it because it's using the IE integration of FoxIt to display the pdf's
We had the same issue (all our computers are 64-bit) and this SPR # 056163 fixed it for us:
To preview PDF files inside the PDM, the following registry line needs to be modified:
To get PDF preview working on a 64-bit system where Foxit is installed, you can revert to using the bundled Oracle Outside-In preview application instead:
1. Open regedit.
2. Browse to key:
3. Double-click the REG_MULTI_SZ value named "4".
4. Delete the row containing "" (ensure "InsoPlugin.dll" is in the first row).
5. Restart the client (or kill and restart Explorer.exe process via Task Manager).
Computers which only have Adobe Reader installed and not Foxit never generated a preview error.
That will work, but the oracle file viewer does lack a good deal of funtionality.
