I'm trying to create a silent installation of Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro that starts off with a 9.0.0 base, and will patch up to 9.4.6

For the most part this is working as desired, however, pretty much during each update - I get a brief file copy window that says it's updating adobepdf.dll to c:\windows\system32

I'm confused as to why this is showing up when everything else about the overall install is silent. Has anyone seen this before, or now how I may address it? I'm using Wise Package Studio, here is the script I'm using -

I think it probably has something to do with the REINSTALL= and REINSTALLMODE= switches you are using. I believe this forces the installer to re-cache the files from the original installation source, which is why you are seeing a file copy window. I don't use those switches very often so I could be off there.

If I were you I would look into creating an administrative installtion point (AIP) on your network. You can then apply all the patches (quarterly patches only!) to this AIP, and then deploy a completely up-to-date version of the software in one installation to your client machines. This article may help: http://blogs.adobe.com/an_tai/archives/9 but let me know if you need any clarification.

Yup, AIP is the correct way to do this.
