I am still getting the window prompt to "Register your Software" even after validating the presence of this registry:

"HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\9.0\FeatureLockdown", "bRegisterProduct", "reg_dword", "00000000"

I am running the silent install of AcroPro.msi and the 9.1 msp patch.

This is Windows XP, SP2/SP3.

Anyone have an idea how to get around?

Thanks,

I don't think you have to screw around with the registry for this setting. It is a checkbox in the customization wizard, or is in 8.x...check it out.

If I use the CustWiz my install fails with the error log:

EmiOrientation: User has entered a retail serial number in a volume build. Rejecting.

So I actually get further going the old-fashioned scripted way.

Any ideas on this error or the previous option?

sorry, haven't dealt with 9 yet (sure it's coming). but if you've got pro that means licesns so at least you should get some support
I know with pro 8.x I had to prevail upon them to give me special media because it kept nagging for vol licensing or some such crap.

Yeah, I'm contacting my Adobe rep to verify it's not some serial num/install media issue.

Still open to registry suggestions on my original issue too. Thanks!

Media/SN issues were not an issue. I ended up resolving this issue by adding the following command line:
"msiexec /i source\AcroPro.msi EULA_ACCEPT=YES REGISTRATION_SUPPRESS=YES /qn"

Adding registration_suppress=yes did the trick.

Thanks,

just what we needed another script without error checking.

As you well know, John, error checking belongs in the CALLed function or sub-routine, not the caller.

I have come across exactly that same error (EmiOrientation: User has entered a retail serial number in a volume build. Rejecting.)
My problem was that I had populated the Source install directory with unneeded folders and mst's. Make sure you take out anything that was not included from Adobe (except your mst)
Also make sure you created an ISX_SERIALNUMBER property equal to your serial number.

As for your registration prompt, make sure the REGISTRATION_SUPPRESS property is set to "YES". I believe that all that is needed to disable the prompt. Though I can't see how leaving that registry key in there could hurt.

If that, for whatever reason does not work, do what I did and use Adobe Customization Wizard 9 to make all those nifty little changes one at a time, generating mst's for each option (disabling updates, registration prompt, APIP), carefully copying over the changes to a master msi (i use the direct editor in IS to do this, sorting each table by whether it was changed) and testing against them.
