The current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader is version 7.0.7.

My question, Adobe released sometime ago their InstallShield Tuner for Adobe Acrobat.

I have used this to build an mst for the 7.0 reader in which I could customize user settings, remove request for client updates, etc,

However you need an "itw" file for the tuner to work.

It looks like version 7.0.7 does not allow for this since I cannot create an itw file from the setup files.

What is the best way to silently install the 7.0.7 package as an msi / mst combination through group policy.

Thanks for any input.

Where did you get your Reader 7.0.7 install from? If you are Corporate you can sign up and get the Enterprise Version FOC. This comes as a compressed exe which you can decompress (I used WinRar). Once decompressed you can get at the MSI and ITW files.

I downloaded it from the adobe web site.

What do you mean by:

"..If you are Corporate you can sign up and get the Enterprise Version FOC."

What does this mean. Where do I go and get this from. I have never heard of such a thing.

Can you please be specific about what and where this can be found.

Thanks again.

Hi

Adobe make available an Enterprise Version of Acrobat Reader, this is available for free and is identical to the public version but is designed for those of us who want to use SMS or GP etc to distribute.

If you go to http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/deployment.html there are resources available to help deploy

I got the Enterprise Version via http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/distribute.html where you will need to register

I found my solution.

I looked at the appdeploy video for Acrobat reader and expanded the executable for an admin install. This produced the itw file.

This is a great site!

Thanks
