What's the deal with Adobe? I downloaded the new Adobe Reader 9.1 last night, so we can get it out to our test group. I get everything setup so that it is ready to go. I used the customization wizard to turn off all the options including the Acrobat.com option. I kick off the install, and it seems fine at first. Then I notice after the install is done, Adobe kicks off the Acrobat.com and Adobe Air install. What the heck? I told it not to do that, but it did it anyway. I can't really kill it, because it looks like it kicks off after the install closes out completely. So if anyone has any ideas let me know. I will try to figure this out. [:@]

This might be the issue:

This file weighs in around 41mb:

Hi Christopher,
this is nothing new to version 9.1.
First of all, if you want get rid of this extra stuff, you should download the right package:
ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.1/enu/AdbeRdr910_en_US.exe
Then use the Package KB (link on top) for info on how to extract the MSI.

If you really want to use the "Standard" version, just set the DISABLE_AIR_SHARE=1. That should do the trick.

This is an en_US version only problem. The international versions don't have this crap inside.

Regards, Nick

Thanks Guys. This should help. This is my first time going out and getting Adobe to repackage it. In the past someone else has gotten it for me. I figured there was something like this out there. Thanks again.

Hi Sam,
on the top of this page, i have linked this thread to Package KB entry of Adobe Reader 9.x.
On the KB, go to "Command Lines"

If your looking for repackaging of Adobe Reader then its likely you'll be distributing within an enterprise and so setting up an agreement to distribute internally can be undertaken which will allow the download of an .msi that contains only the Adobe Reader 9.1 app and no 'padding' and also likely no need to repackage :-)

Takes <5 mins and costs nothing

Agreement can be found at http://www.adobe.com/uk/products/reader/rdr_distribution1.html

I tried that, and it took me to the same install that I had already. I did get the one I needed, so I'm good to go now. Thank you all for your time and input!!

In the earlier 9.0 file area, the STD file is much smaller then the non-STD file, and this was the file I used to build my package because this one didn't did include any of the AIR stuff. Worked fine for months. Go far so good.
[font="times new roman"] ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.0/enu/


Now, In the new 9.1 file area, the STD file is much larger then the non-STD file.
ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.1/enu/

Had Adobe reversed the file naming/contents logic ?
