Foxit Reader set as default during update

 We have many devices that have both foxit phantom installed and foxit reader. Many of our users prefer Phantom to open PDFs, so it's the default. When Reader updates it takes over as the default PDF application. I would prefer that that Reader does not set itself as the default during updates. I think I can make a MST to accomplish this, but I wanted to know if anyone else had run into this and what you did to avoid it.

Hi
  Yes, since you have both you will need to add addition switch or create a MST for the reader program.  If the reader isnt needed on those and they want to user the reader in phantom you could uninstall the app from their device. This is very similar to having Acrobat and the Adobe reader installed on the same device.

Thanks. I ended up adding MAKEDEFAULT="0" to the command line.
