What method are you using while applying this? I've been using this with OSD since Win 10 1511 with no issues at.. Since I set default assoc for several apps its a good idea to do the export from a reference client running the same version you want to apply it on.

It will depend on how you are deploying reader. Here is the list of log files. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/hierarchy/log-files

I think you miss understanding, Adobe Reader is already installed and I want the Windows 10 1709 is set Adobe Reader DC as default as PDF reader … . ;-)

So how are you trying to accomplish this? Have you done the export from a reference machine running 1709?

Yes, with the command, 

Dism /Online /get-DefaultAppAssociations > c:\temp\defaultapps.xml

GPO --> Group Policy: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > File Explorer.

I have put the file in the SYSVOL / Scripts

Any Idea ?

Never tried using the GPO method my self. Is it only Adobe that fails or are you trying to change default apps for any other app?

I've noticed mine is set to Adobe Reader, but eventually "Windows" decides its not working right and sets the default back to Edge. 

The below link may help.

Hack Adobe Reader to be Default

That's solution prevents Adobe to change, it's good. But I am looking for solution to set Adobe Reader as default.

We had that same issue but I found out that in our case it was caused by using old export files. The applicationstrings and what not is updated with every Win 10 version, so if you have exported the default App association file from a client running 1703 you can encounter the behaviour you explain when importing it to a client running a diffrent version. Thumbrule is to make a new export for every Windows version your are running, its been working fine for us after we started doing that.

Nothing that pops up right away.. I guess you could try to make a new export from a computer were you set Adob as default PDF reader and then manually import it on a test client to see if it works.

Ahh ok. That makes sense. I'm using a "borrowed" export so it could be that its not the same Win 10 version I'm currently using. Or in general I've never re-created it after upgrading to the newer Win 10 version. I'll have to see if that solves my particular issue.

 

Thanks.
