Hi,

I am trying to create an network auto install for Adobe reader 7.0 . I followed the below steps
1)made an Admin install Adobe reader 7.0.msi /a
the above copied the files to the network
2)Installed Istuner_Adobeacrobat.exe on a client pc and created an mst file on the server.

3)Now I have the below mentioned files and folders on the network

Adobe Reader 7.0.msi
Adobe Reader 7.0.mst
Systems32
program Files
CommonAppdata
common

When I run the below command from the network folder

msiexec /i "Adobe Reader 7.0.msi" TRANSFORMS=”\\server name\software\adobe7\Adobe Reader 7.0.mst” Reboot=Reallysuppress /qb!

the windows Installer windows pops up with the install options and switches

Pls let me know what I am doing wrong

I remember similar issues with other Administrative install ... try it without as there is really no need to. Just extract the setup and copy the .msi and .mst to your network share

mapping the folder location on ur local PC and then running the command helps in some cases.

You can give a try for same.

Isn't Reboot a public property? If so, you should use capital letters. Try this:

msiexec /i "Adobe Reader 7.0.msi" TRANSFORMS=”\\server name\software\adobe7\Adobe Reader 7.0.mst” REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qb!

Also, make sure your working directory contains the MSI that you are referencing.
