Dear all,

I have followed the instructions for updating Acrobat 7 Standard using the correct volume updates from version 7 - 7.05 from the packages section. I have used MSIEXEC from the command line on Windows Server 2003 to patch the acrostan.msi. I was successful in updating the msi to version 7.05 without any errors. I have also created an mst file using Adobe's IStuner7 (which is a handy tool!).

When deploying to an XP SP2 workstation using GPO I get the following error:

Product: Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Standard -- Error 1334.The file 'AcroIF.dll' cannot be installed because the file cannot be found in cabinet file 'Data1.cab'. This could indicate a network error, an error reading from the CD-ROM, or a problem with this package.

The msi appears to be looking in the wrong place as this file is in program files/adobe/acrobat 7/acrobat. This folder was added by the 705 msp updater to the parent folder.


Any help would be great.

Thanks.

Hi Joppy,
trying to make sure, i got it right: You first did an admin install of Acrobat 7 standard to an admin install point? And afterwards, you put the 7.05 MSP on this install point?

Hi Nheim,

Well not quite I extracted the contents of the update .exe file to another folder within the root admin share. The Acrobat 7 Standard folder is also within this root admin share. Should the msp be located in the same folder as the msi?

Hi Joppy,
can't work like this, at all!
Please do the following:
Install Acrobat Standard to a so called 'admin install point'.
That means, you do a 'msiexec /a acrostan.msi' and give the target directory (on your server) to the dialog, when asked. This extracts all the files with the whole directory structure to this folder and makes the necessary changes to 'acrostan.msi' (the one copied to the target) to run from an admin point.
After that, you do a 'msiexec /a acrostan.msi /p Ac705xxxx.msp' and give the same target directory again. That will now 'really' patch your admin point.
Hope this clarifies the situation.
Regards, Nick

Thanks,

I'm doing that now. I must of overlooked that. All the way along I've been assuming (wrongly) that the patches could update the msi and data1.cab file.

Thanks Nick,

Added the msi and mst to the GPO and it worked a treat! No install errors.
