I am looking for a way to package Adobe Reader 8.0 without deploying the Adobe Reader Synchronizer within startup. Anyone come across this?

According to the Package Knowledge Base on Appdeploy:


There is a new tool to customize Adobe Acrobat/Reader 8 Products: "Adobe Customization Wizard"

http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=3564

This tool supersedes the InstallShield Tuner.


Use this tool to generate a transform file (.mst) and then edit the transform in Orca to delete the Synchronizer shortcut in the Shortcut table.

Cheers

I used the Adobe Customization Wizard to create the MST however the only "remove" option available in the Shortcut table is the Adobe Reader Speed Launch. This is the information I found on Adobe's web site:

http://blogs.adobe.com/barnaby.james/2006/12/the_adobe_synch_1.html

I was hoping for an easier solution that someone has already come across.

Adobe Customization Wizard 8 is now available for download and use.

Goto 'Direct Editor' > at the shortcut table drop the row 'SC_Synchronizer'
We can save a transform file or modify the msi package itself.

Alternatively, you can use Orca to edit the msi file and do the same thing

Removing the 'SC_Synchronizer' from the shortcut table in Direct Editor worked! Thanks

I did the script to del the shortcut

---------------------------------------------------
strCommand = host & "delSynchronizer.bat"
WshShell.Run strcommand, 0, True
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Host is the location where i keep the file
& the file delsynchronizer.bat is batch to del the shortcut.

content of delsynchronizer.bat is
---------------------------------------------------------------------
@ECHO OFF

ECHO Del the Adobe Reader Synchronizer from startup

del "%allusersprofile%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Adobe Reader Synchronizer.lnk"

------------------------------------------------------------------
I just use simple way..
