Hi all,

Looks like the new adobe customization wizard 10.0 has not released yet. Has any one packaged the new Acrobat standard 10.0? Please throw some light on this..Your help is very much appreciated

Have you tried the v9 Wizard? Can v10 really be that different to v9?

Package KB says no. You could try with Orca if you are in a hurry (take a look at the custom mst generated for 9 so you'll know where to look for, more or less). Or just wait for the tool.

Could you elaborate on how you deployed? Which commands you used etc...? I have tried about everything under the sun and it will not install silently in fact most times it brings up a window with the Windows Installer commands and then will not run.

Thanks!

How are you deploying? We're using SCCM and have done limited installs of both 10 Standard and Professional without incident. I used the new Customization Wizard to create transform files for both, based on our company requirements, then wrote a pretty standard MSI command for installation:

%system%\msiexec.exe /i "[install directory]\AcroStan.msi" TRANSFORMS="[install directory]\AcroStan10.mst" /qb!- REBOOT=R /l [log file directory]\AcrobatStd10.log

As a company best practice, I set the SCCM package to reboot the PC prior to the Acrobat install, and then a subsequent reboot reboot after the install. Users are notified, of course, prior to the installation.
Hope that helps.

I am using the KACE KBox for deployment your command is getting me a little further but now I am receiving a Windows Installer error "This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the vendor to verify that this is a valis windows installer package."

Frustrating...

I know diddly about KBoxes but shouldn't that command line be prefixed with a call to MSIEXEC, i.e. msiexec /i "c:\Program Files\KACE\KBOX\downloads\[etc.]And were you aware that there are KBox-specific fora here on AppDeploy?

You can prepend the msiexec and I've tried it both with and without and still nothing.

Yes I have seen the KBox specific forums but there is nothing there that's been helpfull.

cmeisinger,

With much pain I've finally got it to work. I'm doing Acrobat X Standard.

I've got it to work with this: msiexec.exe /i acrostan.msi TRANSFORMS=[transformname}.mst /qb

Set for configure manually and then set "don't prepend msiexec.exe" as unchecked.

Good luck.

Having a little issue with my silent Install Script. I'm using the Adobe Customization X and under Install Options --> Run Installation I have Silently (No Interface) selected.

When I run the script on a computer, it shows the Adobe X progress bar. It also asks them to close outlook.exe.
How do I get rid of the progress bar and have it not ask them to close down applications. I would like to make this install as silent as possible.


My Install Script
msiexec.exe /i \\server\Software\Packages\Adobe\Acrobat_XPro\AcroPro.msi TRANSFORMS=AcroPro.mst SUPPRESS_APP_LAUNCH=YES /qb

Are you using a zip file with the installs, MSI, MST etc that gets downloaded to the client machine then runs that command?

Yes. If pushing as a MI, it goes to c:\program files\kace\kbox\downloads\(id#) and if pulled via software library it goes to the same path but then to an "unzipped" folder.

I had to put a /quiet on the end to get my install to be completely silent.
