OK, I have downloaded and installed AR 9.3.0. [1] After some
interaction with Explorer/Tools/Folder Options/File Types/,
I have managed to set the default action to "Open", the
default association to "Adobe Acrobat 5.0", and create
an alternative action "Open with Adobe Reader 9.x".  The
one remaining question, to my mind, is whether TeXdoc
can conveniently associate itself with the action
"Open with Adobe Reader 9.x" rather than with the default
action "Open".
