Adobe PDF and Hyperlinks OPEN in New Window

We have approximately 3000 attachments that we have to hyperlink into different word documents with the final product in pdf (maintaining the hyperlinks). The final documentation will be on flash drives to 7 different reviewers.

We can save the word to pdf and maintain the links in pdf, but when we click to open the hyperlink it takes us to the attachment but on close, it closes everything.
For more detail, I found this same issue here: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4005350
There are 3 ways we can do this:
1: Change the setting in pdf to 'Open cross-document links in same window' unchecked in Edit>Preferences>Documents (works great but the SACS reviewer would have to follow these steps also. (we are using Adobe X, don’t know what version they would use)
2: We can ask the SACS reviewer to hold Ctrl and enter to open the pdf in a new window, or
3: Can you deploy a configuration file (autorun) to add to the flash drive so they can just click the link and it opens in a new window?

We want to make this as easy as possible for them to review on a flashdrive. Can you give us any advice or help with deployment? Is it possible?
Thanks for any information you can provide. This would have to work in a MAC environment as well.
