I wanted to disable the “Tell me if Nitro Pro is not the default viewer” option on startup for each user via group policy. We can set this using Nitro custom MST creator with deploymentutility9_en.exe , however this works as below
1. On installation we write a large number of preferences to \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nitro\Pro\9.0\settings\
First Launch (User)
2. On a users first run we copy the local machine keys to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Nitro\Pro\9.0
3. We then load on startup these keys to memory for use during the operation of Nitro Pro 9
4. When the application is closed, any changes are written back to HKEY_CURRENT_USER so they can be accessed on the next launch
So once it set once the user can change this, I added the following update registry key to set this every time the user logs in to make 100% the user does not click yes!
Path1 : HKCU/ \Software\Nitro\Pro\9.0\settings\kPreferances
Key : kPrefGeneralMsgIfNotDefaultPDFViewer
Type : String
Value : /b 0 – where 1 is Yes and No is 0
Uncheck Prompt for FileName for all users
I have managed to isolate what drives the configuration for these panels.

Change Word Format Nitro Converts from PDF to Doc
Word Format – To configure in the Word Convert format you can specify the following HKLM (install) and then after first run HKCU defined key.
Location : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Nitro\Pro\9.0\Settings\Preferences\kPreferences
Name : kPrefConvertPDFToWordFormat
Type : String
Value : /i 0 | /i 1 (0 = DOCX, 1 = DOC)
This area hasn’t been configured to be completely silent in the same regards as above. The output will always be indexed ‘Untitled.pdf’, however you can configure the output location in the registry through the following registry key. This will mean that the creation occurs immediately however the name will not be pre-configured for you at this stage. To take advantage of this you will need to configure the registry keys manually shown here
located under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Nitro\Pro\9.0\Settings\Preferences\kCombinePDF.
You will need to swap out some values for the higher quality option, these are:
DownHKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Nitro\Pro\9.0\Settings\Preferences\kCombinePDFloadSample Keys = 300
Quality Keys = 100
Compression = 3
