Hi,

I have been deploying Adobe Reader 9.4.6 patch for 4000 + machines having 9.4.5. Successfully installed for 3500+ machines. However 200+ machines are \failing with Error :1646.
I have run the cmd line with verbose log as below (last part of log files). Please help to get the solution.

ERROR_PATCH_REMOVAL_UNSUPPORTED 1646 The patch package is not a removable patch package. Available beginning with Windows Installer version 3.0.

There could be a number of reasons for this such as an Office / IE (or a web browser) / Adobe product / etc is running or maybe a reboot is required.Or as it suggests, in some way the install you are attempting to patch is not patchable with the patch you are using. I would get one of the offending machines and attempt the install and get the visible error message. You may need uninstall and reinstall.

Thanks for quick reply.
Will check by uninstalling and reinstalling apps. If you find any other solution please let me know.
I have checked the user machines ADD/Remove Program, Reader Versions (weird) displayed as screenshot
