I want to install Adobe Reader 8 to all users on my network. I would like to do this through a GPO so when users login it will install automatically. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to get the MSI. Has Adobe released one?

It's in the AdbeRdr80_en_US.exe file you download. Just launch this file, run it until you get to the first Installer question, then look in your <profile>\Local Settings\Temp directory and copy it from there (it needs the ISScript 11.5 also if memory serves) then quit your install.

Also worth mentioning, Adobe has a pretty good customization tool for Reader 8. You can remove the eula, auto-updates, and meeting requests. Not sure if deploying with AD GPO will let you use transforms though, seems to me I read somewhere that you can't.....

Transforms are used all the time with AD GPOs. They're essential really.

Just a quick point on the "disable all updates" tick box when using the customisation tool.

It doesn't disable automatic updates, it just removes the "check for updates" option on the help menu.

To actually disable the auto updates you need to disable the AUM5 feature - this prevents the autoupdate executable being installed.

Thanks,

Of course, silly me. I guess I was thinking command-line parameters.
