for security reasons."

Is this definitive?

My last _abandoned_ attempt at getting point-and-click to work
was 4 years ago with Adobe Reader 8 on XP SP3.
It launched a textedit URL successfully, but did it in such a
clumsy manner, that you needed to tidy up afterwards each time.
That was what my ARnok.txt was referring to (earlier in thread).

I link the textedit URL through to jEdit.
This works reliably from SumatraPDF and another program,
on XP, and currently on Windows7.

I tested point-and-click just now with Adobe Reader XI:
 - the tooltip displays the textedit parameters
 - the first-time click brings up a security dialog, cf ARwarning.png
   - I chose 'Allow'
 - but nothing happens when I click (not even a browser activity)

So it would seem so.
