I'm sure this topic has already been dealt with before (I can't be the first
one who wanted to do this), but, does anyone know a way to open a pdf file
without knowing the path to Acrobat? (I need to do this on both Mac and
As far as I know, the only way to do this is:
launch "/HardDrive/aFolder/mypdf.pdf" with <Acrobat>
But, you have to know the path to <Acrobat>.
If you know how to do this, I would love it if you can provide a code

present a dialog to the user if Acrobat isn't installed.
Thank you in advance for your time,
