Adobe offers "Adobe Customization Wizard 8" (see Link section) to create an MST-Transform. Language selection is only possible if serial no is provided in the wizard, if not, Acrobat will install in default language (English).

You can provide the serial no. through parameter "ISX_SERIALNUMBER":

msiexec /i "acrostan.msi" TRANSFORMS="acrostan.mst" ISX_SERIALNUMBER="xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx"

and change the language setting with the following RegKeys:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\8.0\Language\current]
@="exlang32.deu"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\8.0\Language\next]
@="exlang32.deu"

The appropriate language file can be found in installation subfolder "Adobe".

If you have Adobe Reader installed and want Acrobat to take control over PDF files use the following property.
IW_DEFAULT_VERB=Open. If IW_DEFAULT_VERB=Read, the Installed Adobe Reader will be the default reader for PDF.

I created an ADM file for the following HKCU settings because we wanted to set the following:

1. Get rid of the splashscreen
2. Set the organization name
3. Change the connection speed to LAN
4. Set the spelling to English (United Kingdom)
5. Change page units to metric.

The ADM file contains the settings for both Adobe Reader 8.x and Adobe Acrobat 8.x.

When adding the policy, you'll need to ensure that the filter on your GPO editor is set to also display settings that can't be fully managed. This is because the settings are stored outside the "policy" key.

Here's the ADM (copy and paste into notepad to retain formatting, hopefully):

If you want to use the autorepair functionality to put user setting in place when users run Acrobat for the first time, set ALLUSERS=2. Else the installation will fail due to inproper installation rigths. I got this problem after I had created a Transform with Orca.

Note
When using Create Transform with Wise a Property ISSETUPCOMPLETED=Complete is added to the Property list.
If this Property exists, the installation will not accept the ISX_SERIALNUMBER property and fail. My recommendations is to only use Adobe Customization Wizard and Orca when preparing MST for Adobe Acrobat.

Note
The installation source directory must include the file "AdobeConfig.xml", together with the MSI, CAB, and optional MST to install with the ALM successfully disabled. Without the file, you will receive a "Grace Period Expired/Activation" dialog. This dialog will fail as Adobe abandoned the ALM method in March 2007.

I recommend using the Customization Wizard 8 to create the transforms. Include parameters "REBOOT=Suppress /qb-!" to install with no interaction (but display the MSI progress)and suppress the reboot. Then execute the patch MSP files in series including parameters "REINSTALLMODE=omus REINSTALL=ALL REBOOT=Suppress /qb-!" followed by a reboot to result in a complete install in a single script.

Having seen the vatrious posts and issues, I thought I would add this "foolproof" method of creating a patched msi which can be installed via AD GPO.

1. Copy the source files from the CD to C:\Adobe\Source

2. Create an admin image from cd - msiexec /a "<CDROM>:\Adobe Acrobat 8 Standard\AcroStan.msi".

3. Put the admin image in C:\Adobe\Admin_Image

4. Download all updates from http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=1&platform=Windows. Download the following updates:
• Adobe Acrobat 8.1 Professional and Standard update - English, French, German, and Japanese
Save this update in C:\Adobe\Update8.1.0
• Adobe Acrobat 8.1.1 Professional and Standard update - multiple languages
Save this update in C:\Adobe\Update8.1.1
• Adobe Acrobat 8.1.2 Professional and Standard update - multiple languages
Save this update in C:\Adobe\Update8.1.2
• Adobe Acrobat 8.1.3 Professional, Standard, and 3D update - multiple languages
Save this update in C:\Adobe\Update8.1.3

5. All the updates will be applied to the admin image just created in C:\Adobe\Admin_Image.

a. Update to 8.1.0
msiexec /a C:\Admin_Image\AcroStan.msi /p C:\Adobe\Update8.1.0\AcrobatUpd810_efgj_incr.msp

b. Update to 8.1.1
msiexec /a C:\Admin_Image\AcroStan.msi p C:\Adobe\Update8.1.1\AcrobatUpd811_all_incr.msp

c. Update to 8.1.2
msiexec /a C:\Admin_Image\AcroStan.msi /p C:\Adobe\Update8.1.2\AcrobatUpd812_all_incr.msp

d. Update to 8.1.3
msiexec /a C:\Admin_Image\AcroStan.msi /p C:\Adobe\Update8.1.3\AcrobatUpd813_all_incr.msp"

6. Once the administrative image has been updated, move the files back into the C:\Adobe\Source directory. Select yes to overwrite any files. This will ensure that all the files needed are for the package are present.

7. Download the Adobe Customization Wizard 8 from the updates link above.

8. Use the Adobe Customization Wizard 8 to create a transform with serial numbers etc.

9. Deploy using GPO

To have Adobe 8.1.6 installed you will have to have 8.1.3 (AdbeRdr810_en_US.exe) first then add your patch http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/thankyou.jsp?ftpID=4487&fileID=4191

The patch will only work from 8.1.3 upward.

I have customized the 8.1.3 installation after unpacking the exe using the following command line:
AdbeRdr810_en_US.exe -nos_ne -nos_o"C:\Adobe Reader 8"

Disable all non required entries while customising especially the one that allow users to connect to Adobe website.

Add your property to the mst generated from your earlier customisation.

in order to disable all other entries that allow user to connect to Adobe.com use the follwoing java script (I have picked up on line by searching):
open a notepad, copy and paste the following
-----------------------------------------------------
//HideMenu.js

//Hides "File" on main toolbar
//app.hideMenuItem("File");

//Hides File - Open
app.hideMenuItem("Open");

//Hides File - Attach to email
app.hideMenuItem("AcroSendMail:SendMail");

//Hides Edit - Check Spelling
app.hideMenuItem("Spelling:Spelling");

//Hides Edit - Preferences
app.hideMenuItem("GeneralPrefs");

//Hides View - Menu Bar
app.hideMenuItem("ShowHideMenuBar");

//Hides View - Toolbars
app.hideMenuItem("Toolbars");

//Hides View - Navigation Panels
app.hideMenuItem("Navigation");

//Hides View - Automatically Scroll
app.hideMenuItem("AutoScroll");

//Hides View - Read Out Loud
app.hideMenuItem("ReadAloud");

//Hides "Document" on main toolbar
app.hideMenuItem("Document");

//Hides "Tools" on main toolbar
//app.hideMenuItem("Tools");

//Hides Tools - Object Data
app.hideMenuItem("DataToolsItem");

//Hides Tools - Customize Toolbars
app.hideMenuItem("CustomizeToolbars");

//Hides Help - Beyond Adobe Reader
app.hideMenuItem("GettingStarted");

//Hides Help - How to
app.hideMenuItem("HelpHowTo");

//Help - Online Support
app.hideMenuItem("OnlineSupport");

//Hides Help - Online Support - Knowledge Base
//app.hideMenuItem("KnowledgeBase");

//Hides Help - Online Support - Adobe Support Programs
//app.hideMenuItem("AdobeExpertSupport");

//Hides Help - Online Support - Accessibility Resource Center
//app.hideMenuItem("AccessOnline");

//Hides Help - Online Support - Generate System Report

//Hides Help - Repair Adobe Reader Installation
app.hideMenuItem("DetectAndRepair");

//Hides Help - Purchase Adobe Acrobat
//app.hideMenuItem("BuyAcro");

//Hides View - Read Out Loud (Great for Terminal Server)
//app.hideMenuItem("ReadLoud");
-------------------------------------------------------

Save the file as Menu.js. Make the file part of your installation and save it to the javascript directory in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\Javascripts . Now every time you open Adobe the relevant menu in your menu.js will be disabled.

I have used a wrapper to install the patch

The following are the codes for the languages. The MST's with these numbers are within the install folder.

Languages=1033;1031;1036
1033=English (United States)

1031=German (Germany)
1036=French (France)

For a french language install. I edited the 1036.mst (french) to include the serial key and custom settings. This was then applied as normal: msiexec.exe /i acrostan.msi TRANSFORMS=1036.mst /qn. This worked perfectly first time when deployed.

To clarify jawch's entry. If you add 8.1.4 and 8.1.5 before 8.1.6 you will get an error. Simply skip those updates and go straight from 8.1.3 to 8.1.6.

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.

The registry keys

@="exlang32.deu" & [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\8.0\Language\next]
@="exlang32.deu"

didn't work for me, so I changed the value of 'ProductLanguage' to 1031 (German). It can be found in the Direct Editor of Customization Wizard (table 'Property').
