How do I deploy Adobe Reader DC without having it take ownership of the PDF file extension?
I'm trying to deploy Adobe Reader DC on workstations with Acrobat Pro on them. I want Acrobat to stay the default app. I've used Adobe's customization wizard, to no avail. It will utilize parts of the MST but when it comes to ownership, it forces DC. My current script looks like this:
msiexec /i <path>\AcroRdrDC1500920069_en_US\NoDefault\AcroRead.msi TRANSFORMS="<path>\AcroRdrDC1500920069_en_US\NoDefault\NoDefault.mst" LEAVE_PDFOWNERSHIP=YES REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qb
I've been researching and testing for days, I can't figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

LEAVE_PDFOWNERSHIP=”YES” property is used to retain the PDF ownership with the existing application. Try using "" for YES in commandline.
You can also add this property inside transforms using ORCA.Add LEAVE_PDFOWNERSHIP with value Yes in property table and delete PDF_INTEGRATION Property.
