<AdobePDF>
   <iFilter Install="false" /> 
  <Icon Configure="false" /> 
  <MIMEType Configure="false" /> 
</AdobePDF>
Question:
There was some error that was generated during the install process and it was related to icon configure so i turned it off during installation. Once I turned if off, the installation went very smoothly.
We are adding new server in the farm.
Does setting all three above option to false create any issue ???

iFilter is not required for SharePoint 2013; in 2010 it allows full-text searching of PDF files.. The other two are used (respectively) for displaying the proper icon for PDF files in SharePoint, and to enable opening files directly from SharePoint (rather than having to save them first).

So, no 'issue' if you set them false, you just miss out on certain functionality/user experience.
