The Developer Toolkit must be installed to access the ArcReader Configuration tool in ArcGIS 9.0 and ArcGIS 9.1. If using ArcGIS version 9.2 or 9.3, the ArcReader Configuration tool (ARConfig.exe) is located in the C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Bin directory.
Once installed, verify ArcReader is not running before proceeding with the following steps:
ArcReader Configuration Properties - View tab
To apply these changes to multiple machines, copy and paste the ArcReader.art template file to each machine in the following directory before using ArcReader.
C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\Application Data\ESRI\ArcReader\Templates
ArcGIS versions 9.2 and 9.3 embed the settings made to the ArcReader template in the Publisher Settings on the ArcReader tab. This allows the settings to be stored in the published map, so that they are available in ArcReader standalone.
