Re: Coolkey and Adobe Reader

I tried it, then attempted to load the reader in Adobe Reader.  After getting the error I closed the program, and there wasn't a file.

To make sure that I had the environment variable set correctly, I then launched Firefox and connected to a page that requires smart card authentication, and there was a log file.

A coworker apparently was able to get the ActivClient PKCS#11 module to load in Adobe Reader 8 on Windows and suggested I try Apple's PKCS#11 module on OS X rather than Coolkey; however I got the same error.

If you set the following environment variable, Coolkey will create a log file:

If you set the environment variable to SYSLOG, coolkey will log to 
the syslog, otherwise coolkey will take the value as a path and try 
to open a log file with that path.

You can at least see if adobe is successfully loading and calling coolkey.
