Can anyone accomplish this?? I've attempted the command line options listed here http://itninja.com/link/adobe-reader-distribution but they do not work.

I read that one had to apply for a license with Adobe to do deployments of Reader... so I did. I also subscribed to Air, Flash Player, and Shockwave player while I was at it. Adobe sends email, grants license, and includes links that I "may not share...". I begin the process of creating my distribution processes. All goes well for all BUT Adobe Reader. Here, I have a link that sends me back to the same page everyone gets with a link to follow the subscription process... which if you do, Adobe will send you an email, with a link that you "may not share..." back to the same page... What a complete waste of time.

Use Adobe Customization Wizard, create package, deploy. I deploy via SCCM and everything works fine.

Do as above, then install with this options
msiexec.exe /i "AcroRead.msi" TRANSFORMS="AcroRead.mst" /qb

I deploy via KACE

Thanks for the replies! Where did you get the msi files from? The download links I have for Adobe Reader X are all .exe files.

actually got it to work using "/sAll /rs /msi EULA_ACCEPT=YES"
Not sure why it didn't before... I did grab a new installer. Maybe that did it...

I tried this in exactly the same way as you, in Windows Dos works it fine. But when I trie this in Kace it fails.

For a kick-off, I would imagine you'd need to specify paths for both MSIEXEC.EXE and the MST but particularly the latter.

I have a similar situation where the msi will install fine in Windows but not in Kace.

For our Adobe installs. We put everything in a zip file. This would include the installation options.

Here is the command line we used for Adobe X

msiexec /i AcroPro.msi TRANSFORMS="AcroPro.mst" /qn

Make sure when you zip multiple files for Kace that you don't zip a folder.

When the Kbox extracts the zip it needs to be able to find your msi at the root.
