Issues with the software in our system We've seen this error in Firefox when trying to load a PDF: "FoxitReaderOCX.ocx failed to load.". All that had changed was Firefox was updated. packages.xml has this commented out in case it's required: install cmd='regsvr32.exe /s "%PROGRAMFILES%\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\plugins\FoxitReaderOCX.ocx"'.
Issues with the software itself
Notes "disable updater - add these to our Foxit Reader notes: For those critical addon updates, they could not be disabled. For other updates, you can disable auto update by setting INI file "IsAutoUpdate=0". For critical add-ons prompts, such as Image Decoder,CJK..., please go to our download webpage, download them and copy their dll files into Foxit Reader program folder to avoid prompting for ever. You may know some files will not be displayed correctly without these critical addons in place."
