I am trying to create an adobe 9.3 install package without Adobe Updater. I tried the instructions from the 9.1 with ORCA and keep getting errors about missing references.

These are the instructions I am trying to follow:

fter you download it, copy it to a temporary folder such as c:\R9. Then execute the installer with this command line:
C:\R9\AdbeRdr930_en_US.exe -nos_o"./InstallFiles" -nos_ne
Note the lack of a space between -nos_o"./InstallFiles"
This will cause the installer files to be extracted to C:\R9\InstallFiles
Open AcroRead.msi in Orca and then do the following:
- In the Component table, drop any row containing 'AdobeUpdater' or 'Adobe_Updater'
- In the Feature table, drop any row containing 'AUM' or 'Updater'
- In the FeatureComponents table, drop any row containing 'AUM' or 'Updater'
- In the File table, drop any row containing 'AdobeUpdater' or 'Adobe_Updater'
- In the ModuleComponents table, drop any row containing 'AdobeUpdater' or 'Adobe_Updater'
- In the MsiFileHash table, drop any row containing 'AdobeUpdater'
- In the Registry table, drop any row containing 'Adobe_Updater'
- In the Registry table, drop the row containing 'Registry838'
- In the Shortcut table, drop the row containing 'SC_READER_DT'
- In the Property table, set the value for SYNCHRONIZER to YES
- In the Property table, set the value for EULA_ACCEPT to YES
Also in the Property table, you could set the value of DISABLE_BROWSER_INTEGRATION to YES, to prevent Reader from opening within the browser. This would be beneficial in Terminal Server environments. When a PDF file is opened within the browser and the user then browses to a different page, the Reader components are stay in memory until the browser is closed.
Save the new MSI.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Use the appropriate Adobe Customization Tool (or whatever it's called this week). You will spend weeks trying to get a working package without it.

EDIT:
Thanks for this, Owen. Now I know what it's called this week.

After I followed the instructions:

C:\R9\AdbeRdr930_en_US.exe -nos_o"./InstallFiles" -nos_ne
Note the lack of a space between -nos_o"./InstallFiles"
This will cause the installer files to be extracted to C:\R9\InstallFiles

I used the Adobe Customization Wizard 9 to edit the acroread.msi that was extracted it worked fine.

Thanks to all for your help.

Hi Pat,
why don't you download the MSI from here: ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.3/enu/ ?

That would give you two advantages: No hassle with the notorious NOSSO stuff and the package is packaged into one file.

Regards, Nick
