OPEN WITH dialog not showing application

QUESTION: How to add an application to "Open With" dialog box?


ISSUE:
Installed Acrobat Reader 5.
The PDF files are associated correctly and if opened from Explorer don't have any problems.
Issue is that when my user tries to open the file from within Groupwise, the "Open With" dialog is displayed but Acrobat is not in the list. Attempts to un-install/re-install Acrobat did not have any affect.

I'm not running 98SE but I seem to recall that when the box opens with the list of programs you also have the option to browse. Once you go to the Acrobat executable and open a PDF it should be added to the list after that.

We have had problems opening PDFs directly from groupwise. End up saving to desktop and opening from there.
Another thought would be if they originally had AcroReader 3.0 and didn't uninstall it prior to installing the 5.0. Adbobe has lengthy instruction for fixing this.
