We can launch acrobat reader application from Run window by executing the command acrord32. I have Windows 32 bit XP running on my box and this command is working for me. If you have 64-bit acrobat application then the command may vary.
You can find out the command yourself by looking at the install folder of Acrobat reader. The default installation path for acrobat reader is “c:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe”
If you have 64-bit OS and if you have installed 32-bit acroreader then the path would be something like below.
“C:\Program Files(x86)\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader”.
Please write in the comments box below if you have any questions on this.
