If it uses the DDE commands that Texniccenter had implemented for ages 
these work only
for the professional series not the free acrobat reader. Maybe that has 
changed for V9
but DDE is not really reliable since all versions of acrobat differ.

Note that I am not an export on the DDE use of acrobat, this is only 
what I learned by using it.
