Acrobat is already in MSI format, although concealed in a set-up executable. You should not capture MSIs.

Also, because of the MSI's complexity, Adobe provides a customisation tool which you can use to create a transform which you then apply to the MSI from the command line or as part of your deployment.

Use AppDeploy's Search facility and the 'Package KB': all the information you require is there, including how to stop users being prompted to update, etc, etc.

If I recall correctly, the volume license release definitely extracts and runs an MSI.

- Delete junk from the %TEMP% folder. That is, not %SystemRoot%\TEMP, but the 'Temp' folder for the currently logged-in user.
- After running the EXE, stop at the first screen.
- Then check your %TEMP% folder again. There should be an MSI there, although it may have a strange name. This is the MSI to use. Copy it somewhere, then cancel out of the EXE.

As for information, start here http://itninja.com/link/update,-patch-|-acrobat,-reader-7.x---9.x-|-windows

You may not have found answers to your problem via the Search facility because you're looking for the wrong things. Once you have abandoned trying to capture the setup into an MSI and begin using the proper MSI, those problems shouldn't occur. Search purely for 'Acrobat' and 'customisation'.

Everything you need to know is here on AppDeploy, believe me.

i can inject serial in acropro.msi with orca As I also said, you should NEVER directly edit vendor-supplied MSIs. ALWAYS use a transform.

if i decompile acropro.msi with wise afer no possible to compile What a surprise! As above, don't mess with vendor-supplied MSIs.

Use the Search facility here to find the link to Adobe's customisation tool. Use that to create the transform.

An MST is what you want, so that you can apply it TO the MSI.

Reading between the lines, I think your issue is that you don't know how to use a transform with an MSI when deploying with Tivoli, that you only know how to add an MSI. Would that be right?

One would typically specify a transform on the command line, like this:MSIExec /i [path_to_and_name_of_MSI] TRANSFORMS="[path_to_and_name_of_MST]" [other command line arguments]

You won't be able to apply the patch that way. Try creating an Administrative Install Point (AIP), patch that and then use the patched MSI with your transforms:

-Create the AIP :
msiexec.exe /a acropro.msi

When prompted for a location, select a network share to which all your users have read access. The MSI will extract all its files to the AIP and deposit a revised MSI there, too. For our example, let's say you used 'X:\Apps\AcroPro'

- Patch the AIP:
msiexec.exe /a acropro.msi /p acrobatUpd810.msp

- Install to a test workstation using the AIP version of the MSI. Note how I have included the language transform. Note also that, as I ALWAYS do when testing installs, I have specified a verbose log:
msiexec.exe /i X:\Apps\AcroPro\acropro.msi TRANFORMS="1031.mst;acropro.mst" /qb /l*v %temp%\acropro.log

user not have access to lan. I wonder why there's a LAN at all, in that case. How do users have their log-in script executed? By mind-melding? :) You must - surely - have a common share. From where do the apps get deployed, for example?

ps: you speak french ? Un peu. Je parle beaucoup mieux l'espagnol que je parle francais. La derniere fois que je parlais francais, pour toute longueur de temps, il ya quarante ans, comme un ecolier.

je deteste adobeWe have an expression in English: "Join the club"

the enterprise where in work "veux" one et only packacge msi . How do you handle other apps which require customisations, e.g. almost any that have a "I accept the license agreement" dialog?

I don't know how I can help you further. Repackaging this MSI is even more of a problem than it would be normally, as it is quite a complex construction.

If Tivoli can deploy EXEs, how about creating a WiseScript wrapper which contains the MSI and MST, copies them locally and then executes MSIExec against them? Failing that, pop out to your local branch of Decathalon, purchase the heaviest baseball bat you can find and take a walk to the office of whoever it was decided to limit deployments to a single MSI.
