Hi folks,

I have to iinstall 7.0.5 using SMS onto 600+ machines that have a variety of previous versions of Adobe from 4 up to 7.0.3. I have created an MST using the installer and that works fine using SMS. I also can seethat the installer will uninstall 6 and up versions before putting on 7.0.5. So the question is, how do I get rid of the older versions? I attempted to use the uninstall string from the registry but this also removed Adobe Acrobat writer 5 from the PCs. Has anyone else seen this issue?

Thanks for any assistance!

Brian

The command >

C:\WINDOWS\ISUNINST.EXE -y -a -f"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Acrobat 5.0\NT\Uninst.isu" -c"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Acrobat 5.0\NT\Uninst.dll"

Will uninstall Acrobat 5.

A script that does this might look like this,

Set oShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
oShell.Run("C:\WINDOWS\ISUNINST.EXE -y -a -f"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Acrobat 5.0\NT\Uninst.isu" -c"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Acrobat 5.0\NT\Uninst.dll""),1,TRUE
