How to change default Acrobat application ? - Adobe Acrobat SDK

To test the Acrobat plugin I'm developing, I have installed several Acrobat versions in parallel: 5, 6, 7, and 8 - version 9 coming soon. How can I change the default Acrobat application - the version that is activated if I click on a PDF doent, or if I start my application activating Acrobat and connecting to the plugin.

    Default How to change default Acrobat application ?

    To test the Acrobat plugin I'm developing, I have installed several Acrobat versions in parallel: 5, 6, 7, and 8 - version 9 coming soon.

    How can I change the default Acrobat application - the version that is activated if I click on a PDF doent, or if I start my application activating Acrobat and connecting to the plugin.

    When I install a new Acrobat version, this is the default. But when I start e.g. Acrobat 6, this remains the default. (other version seem to be less "sticky".) I did not find out where the default is set - probably in the registry?

    Of course I can start a specific Acrobat version before starting my application. But I need to test also the default start - had some problems occurring only in this case.

    Thank you.

    100% unsupported configuration by Adobe. In most cases, it won't work and is definitely not suitable for testing. See here: <http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=333223&sliceId=2>

    Why not just create a separate VM for each version?
