I am very new to SCCM 2012 and had only like 2 months experience using it. Can someone guide me on my above question? Please take it that I'm a newbie and have no idea what is the first step to do, therefore please guide me step-by-step. The vendor has installed SCCM on our server so it's already functioning well. I just can't figure out how to patch adobe reader to our staff's computers.

first step, down load the update.

then, before SCCM, install it and see if it 'works' , no errors, and that the application when launched, tells you it is the higher version.

now for the fun, finding out how to make is silent,...

Adobe for the most part uses MSI's, updates can be either MSI or MSP files...

when you know which one you have, give us some more info

Read a book.
Or google for how to advertise an application in sccm 2012.

Adobe installation details you find with our software tips.
Best to get an MSI, but for the EXE there are also tips.

Just remember to make it silent and the installation will take care of updating older versions.
