Hi All

Any help would be appreciated. Putting together a script to install Adobe 8.2 with the just released security updated 8.2.1. The script below is what I'm using to push the package, but I'm sure the syntax is not correct, as it only attempts to install the patch, without the msi first (and fails).

Any advice would be much appreciated.

msiexec /i "\\share\AdbeRdr820_en_US.msi" TRANSFORMS="\\share\AdobeReader8_2.mst" ADDLOCAL=ALL PATCH="\\share\AcrobatUpd821_all_incr.msp" /qn

Create an Administrative Install Point (MSIEXEC /A [etc]), patch that (MSIEXEC /P [etc]), THEN start deploying.

1) do your install in 2 steps, first installing the MSI, then applying the patch with an MSIEXEC.EXE /P ...
2) are you SURE you want to do it this way? I know Adobe readers are a pain, but I'd suggest trying to make an AIP and patching that first. This way you can centralise your source control.

EDIT: not again...[:(]

That sounds like you installed the MSI, then ran the patch. Decided not to use an AIP, then? Way to go...

Getting a bit confused here...

With versions less than 8.2.1, we could use setup.ini, as below (for the full 8.1.3 MSI) and just add in the MSP(s).

For 8.2.0, adding in the 8.2.1 MSP isn't working.

They change something, again?

Thanks!
