This is for X so not sure it works for 9, but there would be one for 9 as well.

You didn't look close enuf!
In the "Notes" section (3rd from bottom) for "Acrobat 9.x" (http://itninja.com/link/adobe-reader-9)

It states:
Set the serial number as the ISX_SERIALNUMBER INI entry (under the "OEM Install" section) in the Abcpy.ini file
[OEM Install]
ISX_SERIALNUMBER=xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx

You don't.
Just put it in the same location as the MSI.

Hi Lillian,

There shouldn't be any "problems" deploying Adobe Acrobat through NS.
I did Acrobat 7.x last week and installed it through CMS (NS) and can't imagine that is much different deploying version 9, what are you having problem with?

The reason is I have so many CD on my hands need to individually push out package to each user, because the license key need to add in ABCPY.INI file for each package. so it will take time to do so

any other way I can do this?

Just:
Create a Software Resource, add the media to the "Package", create the Install command and add the Detection Rule.
Create a Filter and add the Computer Resources to the filer that should have Acrobat installed to them.
Now, create a Policy, point to the Install command for the Software Resource and apply this for the filter.

Or is the problem that you need to have different serial number for different computers?

YES, I know how to create package in NS with resource and policy, the question is I need to each package for each machine, becuase the license key issue in abcpy.ini for each CD.

Example: when I send the package to user1, I have to manually key license key in abcpy.ini file. when done this package, I need to modify the abcpy.ini (another license key) for users2, then send the same package to the users2.

Huh? I don't know Adobe's licensing at all but surely you can get a key which allows you 'x' installs?

Sounds like you need to contact Adobe and get an enterprise license for enterprise distribution.

you can put the key in the package and use it on all of your computers. the important thing is that you need to BUY 1 license for each installation.

if you have 20 computers with the same key and 20 cd-roms in a drawer, adobe will never complain!

YES, I have successful push out Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro usins NS7, but this only for one user, if for next user then I have to change the ABCPY.ini for new license key, so only one license at the time.

Any idea can put all the license key in ABCPY.INI for different users

Thanks
