Hi,

Pretty new to the whole deployment side of things, so please bear with me, I've just created a new SCCM package for Adobe Reader 10.1.3.

I use the following switches "adobereader.exe /sAll /rps" within my vbs. The scripting for this works fine and installs as should do.

Could anyone advise how to get it to log the activity of the installation, when using the /? it doesn't advise how to record a log file from what I can see?

Also, shortly after the installation, we are being prompted with the prompt of how you'd like to handle updates to Adobe Reader - is there a way to configure the installation so it disables this at point of installation?

Thanks in advance.

Rich

have a look at this link: http://www.robvanderwoude.com/unattendedapps.php#AdobeReaderInstall

It will show you the correct way of building a redistributable installer, based on an MSI installer customised with the adobe customisation toolkit.

you will need to use the msi inside to exe, whic i assume is there like most exe reader packages. If not im sorry I can't help. To create a log  you need to pass /l*v logfile.txt command line arguments to the msi usnig either /v or /msi depending on how you created you exe.

The "/l" switch will generate a Bootstrap.log in the temp directory. Untested, but you may try something like /l:C:\temp\reader10.log and see if you can direct the output.

Easiest method by far is get the MSI installer and use the /l*v log.txt switch as Tentacle Master has suggested. You can get MSIs for Adobe products here: http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/distribution.html
