Hi there,

I have read all threads about adobe acrobat, but no one seems to have the problem that i have.
I was able to make an mst file, and also deleted custom action UnSupportedInstallType. Installing manually with administrator rights, the program runs perfectly.
I want to deploy this app through GPO, i choose publish this app and install at logon.
When a user is logging in, you see the message installing adobe acrobat...... but it takes so long that it looks like to never ends.
I have test it on two different AD situation, same problem.

Can anyone help me?

The package should be applied as a Computer package not a user package

In the GPO Computer configuration | New package | chose the package | advanced | Deployment Assigned | and click Uninstall this app when it falls out of the scope.

Thanks, it did indeed succesfully deployed as a computer package.
But this means that everybody gets this application.
This there a way to just deploy this app to a group and not everybody? because we don't have enough license.

No that is not correct, but true that you probably by default have all Computers (Authenticated Users) added when you create a new GPO You may delete that from the security filtering and ad a group in witch you add the Computer names.

Add a New Group to Users and computers and name the group say like appAdobeAcrobat6.0 description (Computer name of Users who should have the software installed.)

IF you are not already using GPMC for administrating your Group Policy you should find it

Group Policy property security

Same thing if you make a deny read and deny apply on one specific user or computer you have the ability to remove a package end deploy it once again

Sorry for the late reaction, was kind of busy.
Thats it, instead of adding users to group, adding machines to the group.

Thanks man
I couldn't have done it without you [;)]
