My question is based off of this unanswered question on the Adobe forums.

Background: The background behind why I want to do this is because I'm trying to plan the order & time needed to read some PDFs assigned by our teachers weekly. I thought having the page number displayed in Windows Explorer would make it easier to plan/organize myself.

Question: Why are the page values empty for the PDFs that I'm looking at through Windows Explorer? Is it because the file was created without a page value?

Additional: Also, is there a utility that will add the page value for a PDF file, and is there a way to batch add these values (recursively through a directory)?

Looks like neither Adobe nor Microsoft supplies a provider for the Windows Property System that provides that information for PDF files.
