I am trying to set-up my Adobe product licensing. My problem is that Acrobat pro is being listed as a seperate application when the rest of the Creative Suite is installed as well I am also seeing Acrobat Pro X 10.1.4 listed in two seperate groups-one that just says Acrobat X Pro 10.1.4 and one that says Acrobat Prox X-English, French, German (this is a seperate issue that is not Kace's fault).

 

Here is my question-

How can I create a custom inventory rule that will find all machines that have acrobat pro installed, but ignore all machines that that have the rest of the creative suite installed? Can I use something like a "NOT" or similar syntax funtion to tell it to ignore those machines? I know that most of the machines that have creative suite installed have Adobe Bridge, so I do know of an application I can use to create the filter.

Answer Summary:
The only work-around I can think of at the moment would be to create a label that identifies the Creative Suite and put a dummy registry key on those machines. You could then use a script using the registry key as a verify step, then use your install as the remediation step.

Only AND and OR are supported operators in custom inventory rules currently. AND/OR are also the only supported operators in smart labels through the wizard. NOT and XOR have been a feature request for a while.

It's possible you could use NOT in a label if you write it in MySQL, but I'm not very familiar with it.
