Run AcrobatPro_11_Web_WWMUI.exe to extract the install files.  Create an MST using the Adobe Customization Wizard.  Zip the install files if installing via the K1000.

msiexec /i "AcroPro.msi" TRANSFORMS="AcroPro.mst" /qn

I use the CustWiz11 to install the native setup.exe that will install Acrobat Pro 11 silent with updates shut off and unlocked for non admin user activation.

1. Extract the files from the installer.
2. Download and install the Adobe Customization wizard XI.  (you require the 11 version).
3. Open custwiz and select the extracted acropro.msi.
4. Populate the wizard by shutting off updates, adding serial key, removing access to the Adobe services online, and accepting the EULA.
5. Save the package as the same name (by default) as the MST beside the original MSI.
6. In the extracted source binaries directory select the setup.ini and edit in the following (notice the languages  are removed as no modal is required):

 [Startup]
 RequireOS=Windows XP
 RequireMSI=3.1
 RequireIE=7.0.0000.0
 Require64BitVC10RT=1

 [Product]
 msi=AcroPro.msi
 CmdLine=TRANSFORMS=AcroPro.mst /PASSIVE /NORESTART /LOG C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\Install-MSI_AdobeAcrobatPro11.log
 vcrtMsi=vc_red.msi
 vcrtDir=VC10RT_x64

 [Windows XP]
 PlatformID=2
 MajorVersion=5
 MinorVersion=1
 ServicePackMajor=3

 [MSI Updater]
 Path=WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe

7. Finally, Create a wrapper script that will do the following:


 a)  Uninstall existing product:

  msiexec /X {AC76BA86-1033-FFFF-7760-000000000006} /PASSIVE /NORESTART /LOG C:\WINDOWS\Temp\UNINSTALL-Acrobat_Pro_11.0.LOG

 b) Install the product (elevated as admin):

  %PACKAGESOURCEFILES%\setup.exe

 

(no switches running setup.exe)

Hi guys,

I have been experiencing issues getting Adobe Acrobat Pro XI deployed in SCCM, with an exit code of 1603. This basically relates to the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64 Redist 10.0.40219 missing from Windows 7 SP1.

The vc_red.msi that comes with the Acrobat Pro XI install files needs to be deployed first in order to get the software to install.

msiexec /i vc_red.msi /qn

THEN

MSIEXEC /I <path to msi>\AcroPro.msi TRANSFORMS="<path to mst>\AcroPro.mst" /qn

I hope this helps anyone having the same issues as I did :)

Setup Information:
Setup Type: Legacy Setup with no known command line support
Deployment Method Used: Windows Installer with Custom Transform (MST)
Deployment Difficulty: Somewhat Difficult
Platform(s): Windows
  • Easy enough. If SCCM 2007, just put it as a "Run this before..." in the Program for the cmdline. If SCCM 2012, in the App-Model package, you have Adobe as one package and the VC as another. Then in the Deployment Type for Adobe, go to the Dependencies Tab and add VC. Super easy.

I'm trying to create an install for Adobe Standard XI as well as PRO  XI to be pushed out to our clients via the K1000.  I'm not having much luck.  Who was able to get it working successfully and can you send me the documentation step by step you did to achieve your results.  Thanks

We can use properties to set Adobe Acrobat not to take ownership of the default PDF file extension, by leaving Adobe Reader as the default PDF reader.

For version 10.0 & higher use the property LEAVE_PDFOWNERSHIP=YES

YES - prevents the new installation from taking over PDF ownership. 
NO - allows the new install to own opening PDFs. 

For version 11.0 & higher use the property OWNERSHIP_STATE=0.

0: Do not take ownership.
1: Take ownership for the current user. 
2: Take ownership for all existing and new users.

Deployment Method Used: Windows Installer with Custom Transform (MST)
