I'm looking for a way how to open a pdf file by using command line of Adobe and Foxit or windows.

Note: it's not a double topic of How to open a pdf in fullscreen view via command line because the marked answer does not works for me.

For Foxit Reader, the command would be: "[path_to_executable]Foxit Reader.exe" <path_to_your_pdf>. For example, on my Windows the command is: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\Foxit Reader.exe" C:\Users\Paulius\Desktop\mcs.pdf.

I don't have Adobe Reader to test but I believe the same command (different executable) should work.

It looks like there is no official support for this in Foxit Reader. –  paulius_l Jun 5 '12 at 14:41
