Hello. I am using Customization Wizard 9 to create a transform for the deployment of the Japanese versions of Acrobat Reader 9.1 and Acrobat Pro 9.0 across our enterprise. We are using Windows XP English with the Japanese MUI installed.

I am trying to customize the Adobe products so that they will assume the language of the operating system upon launch.Through the Registry section of the Customization Wizard I have added a key for the destination computer:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\Language\UseMUI] (for Acrobat Reader 9)
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\9.0\Language\UseMUI] (for Acrobat Pro 9)

This key allows the Adobe product to assume the language of the operating system upon launching (e.g., the Adobe menu will be in English for English OS setting, and in Japanese for Japanese OS setting).The problem I am having, is though I am entering this key in the Customization Wizard, for some reason, it's not being saved. I have no idea what's going on here. I make the change (add the key), generate the transform, and then save the package. But each time I open the package and load the transform afterward, my registry key change is not there. It is as if I had never made the change in the first place. (Why won't it save the key I have entered?)

All other changes made in the Customization Wizard are properly saved, but none related to the Registry section appear to do so.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any advice?

Thanks in advance.

In that case you can use any other packaging tool or ORCA to import ur registry settings and save the changes.
However, i have seen it working with previous version of adobe customization wizard.

Thanks. I have loaded the MSI/MST into Orca, and I can view the settings, but I am at a complete loss how I would go about importing the registry settings that I want to apply.

I am new to this, and I was hoping that I could muddle through this setting change using the Configuration Wizard only, but it seems that this won'e be the case.

Does anyone know how I would import the registry setting detailed above into Orca?

Open ur MSI in ORCA load your transform. Go to registry table->add row. Now you can find 5 to 6 columns. Fill in accordingly. If you are importing HKCU keys root value must be 1. You can get help from the other entries in the same table.
Refer to this link for more help:

Thanks. Within the registry table, there is the "Registry" header. What value should I enter for that for my table entry?

I will take a look at the link provided.

This is how I have set the row up. Please advise if anything is amiss:

Registry: Use_MUI
Root: 1
Key: Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\9.0\Language\UseMUI
Name:
Value :
Component: Reader_Registry_user

Note no values are entered for Name and Value. I obtained the value for Component (Reader_Registry_user) from the link provided.

Actually, for the UseMUI key, when I make the changes manually by accessing Edit->Preferences->International, and then confirming the key addition by opening the registry editor, I observe that a new key (UseMUI) is entered, but no values are set within that key.

Instead Wise or Installshield can be used. These contain GUI so registries can be imported easily

I observe that a new key (UseMUI) is entered, but no values are set within that key.In that case, just enter the name (UseMUI) and leave the value cell empty.
