Hi All

I have created the script to silently install Adobe Reader version 9:

START /WAIT MSIEXEC /I \\path to location\AcroRead.msi ALLUSERS=TRUE TRANSFORMS=\\path to location\AcroRead.mst /QN

And that works. The problem is, with the Adobe Customization Wizard 9 the option to select upgrade existing versions is greyed out. Hence i need to add to the script all the options to remove all current versions. Has anyone done this so can save me some grief as not that great with scripting. Just trying not to recreate the wheel.

I thought the Adobe reader msi already upgrade from older versions automatically...but I could be wrong. Have you considered modifying the MST to include the upgrade codes for the previous versions?

Scott,

Looking at the upgrade table in the MSI it appears that it should upgrade versions 6 and above automatically - anything lower than 6 and you're looking at custom actions to uninstall.

Thanks,

You should use the "Acrobat 9 Customization Wizard"- good working tool which creates an detailled mst-file.

Hagen,

It's great that you're replying to posts - but this thread is over a month old!

He'd already said that he was using the Adobe Customization Wizard:
