When i open a PDF file from Sharepoint page, an Adobe Reader message pops up that reads -

Tip: WHen finished with the file, you can check it in using the "Sharepoint Server" option in the FIle Menu.

asking me to "Chek Out & Open" "Open" and "Cancel"

How do i disable this pop up message?

I tried following the asnwer here (…) using PowerShell, but it didn't recognize the first line :/ – dylan murphy Sep 30 '15 at 18:05

I´m not sure that the menus that I point are called exactly like that because I´m translating them from the Spanish version. Yet, you´ll get the idea. Go to "Preferences > Security (Enhanced)" and deselect "Activate Enhanced Security". Then restart the Reader.

This didn't seem to have any impact for me ... – dylan murphy Sep 30 '15 at 17:59

Go to the preferences in Adobe reader and deselect "Show me messages when I launch Reader".

Thanks for replying Hugh but it still came up when i deselect it. Any other suggestion? – Paolo Oct 30 '12 at 4:33
I misread the question sorry, this popup seems to be required after tinkering. I didn't see that it was a response box not just a tip. This I would of thought only would popup in Acrobat pro, it doesn't appear in my reader at all. – Hugh Wood Oct 30 '12 at 8:37
