Adobe Reader 6.0 comes from Adobe as a Windows Installer (.msi) package wrapped in an executable. Here are the steps to access the .msi file and related install components.

1. Download Adobe Reader from Adobe. Be sure to check the box that indicates that you do not want to use the Adobe Download Manager. This will cause the full version to download as AdbeRdr60_enu_full.exe.

2. Run AdbeRdr60_enu_full.exe. A dialog will display the message, "Please wait while Adobe Reader 6 is recomposed." Eventually, you be presented with an installation splash screen.

3. After you see the installation splash screen, look for the directory %SystemRoot%\Cache. This where AdbeRdr60_enu_full.exe places the installation files. Copy %SystemRoot%\Cache\Adobe Reader 6.0\ to another location. These are the install files you may use to load Reader on other PC's.

The adobe tuner 601 has a bug in it, you need to run the program using US-English local files, other regions will either crash the tuner or not allow access to some screens.

HKCU settings can be set by adding entries under
HKLM\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\Installer\Migrate
in the fasion
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\Installer\Migrate\AnyNameRegVal1]
@="Software\\Adobe\\Acrobat Reader\\6.0\\HKCUkeyyouwanttochange"
"name"="ValueName"
"val"="1" (Usually 0 or 1)
"type"=dword:00000004 (4=DWORD, 3=Binary)

You will need to remove existing HKCU hive before applying any secondary migration settings in order to re-read the data

Extract the MSI’s from the Asia Font Packs:

Launch setup.exe, then the installer will extract the MSI to:

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\_is25x

The MSI are named:

Adobe Reader Chinese Simplified Fonts.msi
Adobe Reader Japanese Fonts.msi
Etc..

Once you have all the Adobe Reader Fonts packages, you can edit your Reader installation with Package Studio to remove them during the upgrade.

To include the uninstallation of the Asian font packs, use Windows Installer Editor and the 'Upgrades' component. Click 'Add' and select the Asia font pack MSI's you want to uninstall during the upgrade (keep all default settings).

For our environment, we did this:

Current machines: Adobe Reader 6.0 (ENU) plus JP,KR,CHT,CHS Font packs installed.

For the upgrade we will upgrade to the native language Adobe Reader 6.0.1 (depending on user requirements) 'and' remove all the Asian font packs (since they are not needed anymore), all in one swoop.

I'm using following vbscript to install Acrobat Reader:

The program installs Acrobat Reader 6.0. After the installation the registry key of the EULA is changed so the program will not come with the annoying "Accept/Decline" dialog box. Next all shortcuts are removed.

FYI: I use this script in a corporate environment.

2. Run AdbeRdr60_enu_full.exe. A dialog will display the message, "Please wait while Adobe Reader 6 is recomposed." Eventually, you be presented with an installation splash screen.

That information was provided by tsmiller.

To use the command line, follow those directions. Once you have the files copied to another location, you can then use the *.msi file to install the application. If you type in the following at the command line:
msiexec /qb- /i "Z:\packages\Adobe\ENUBIG\Adobe Reader 6.0.msi"
where Z:\packages\Adobe\ENUBIG\ is the full directory location of the files, the application will install itself without any other user intervention. This can be placed in a *.bat file or one the CMDLINES.txt to be deployed during an unattended windows install.

in Target242 posting, I've made a minor correction to the installation script in the 'corrected' version below. this was done to reflect the current .msi file name and to add quotes surrounding the install path.

Original:
Return = WshShell.Run("msiexec /i " & programpath & "AR60.MSI /QB-!",1,True)

Corrected:
Return = WshShell.Run("msiexec /qb- /i """ & programpath & "Adobe Reader 6.0.msi""",1,True)

Here is a nice method that uses the windows installer package but makes a transform using Installshield Tuner 6.0.1 for Adobe Reader

- download the Installshield Tuner + the Adobe package from the Adobe web
http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=1&platform=Windows

How:
- Start the install of ADobe Reader 6.x, but stop at the welcome screen - do not click Next!.
- The installation copy the files to %systemroot%\Cache\Adobe Reader 6\. Copy the complete Adobe Reader 6 directory to your server or into a testenvironment.
- Start Installshield Tuner and open the .ITW file in the copied directory
- Select Create a New Transform, and select the msi file to make the transfrom from, browse to the file, and then click Create from the menu.

You can now adjust your package as you wish and deploy it using standard Active Direcotry methods

I Found a small bug in SadRiddler's modification:

Dim AllUsersDesktopPath, AllUsersStartMenuPath

should be

Dim AllUsersDesktopPath, AllUsersProgramsPath

Also I added these to remove the autoupdate, ads and as I live in Australia, display units in mm. Thanks go to ewall for most of these.

Special notes concerning deploying the Acrobat .msi's via Altiris:

I had not had any problems deploying the Acrobat 6 products via Active Directory/Group Policy using the information others have provided here.

Then when I had to deploy them via Altiris, I ran into vague error messages and failure. I have not been able to verify the cause, but I suspect it has to do with the .mst file that the InstallShield Tuner creates. Here is how I finally got them to work properly with Altiris.

1. Used Wise Package Studio (instead of the InstallShield Tuner) to create the initial transform (.mst) for Acrobat.

2. THEN modified the .mst using the InstallShield Tuner

3. Modified the UnsupportedInstallType in the Custom Actions table of the .msi as has been documented above.

Quick correction: for Adobe 6.0.1 (not sure about 6.0 but I assume it's the same), the key to disable the splash screen at startup listed in this thread as "HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\AdobeViewer\Originals\bDisplayAboutDialog","0","REG_DWORD" is actually "HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\Originals\bDisplayAboutDialog","0","REG_DWORD"

by this:

fso.deletefile AllUsersDesktopPath & "\Adobe Reader 6.0.lnk", True
fso.deletefile AllUsersProgramsPath & "\Adobe Reader 6.0.lnk", True

I've improved on Larry Duncan's "Acrobat Reader 6.0 Deployment Notes from the Field" with a better example transform and Registry entries that do all of the following:

- Turn off all "Updates" features (which won't work for unprivileged users, of course).
- Turn off the advertisements for Adobe products in the upper-right corner of the toolbar (yes, you can do that!).
- Disable the splash screen during program startup.

You can download these here:

Install Acrobat Reader 6.0 with an MST.

Here are the advantage :
- Will be install for all users on the machine
- No license pop-up when opening Acrobat Reader 6.0 (all users)
- No upgrade pop-up (all users)
- No PrintMe icons (all users)
- LAN connection default seeting in Internet speed (all users)

Just create an MST by adding those things in it :

- Change the installation to be install per machine instead of per-user
- Select "never reboot" (as you wish...)
- Remove the PrintMe folder in shortcurts
- Add those current user keys :

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\AdobeViewer]
"TrustedMode"=dword:00000000
"EULA"=dword:00000001
@=""

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\Updater]
"iUpdateFrequency"=dword:00000000
@=""

- Add those local machine registry keys :

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0]
@=""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\AdobeViewer]
@=""
"EULA"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\AVGeneral]
@=""
"iConnectionSpeed"=dword:00989680

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\6.0\Updater]
@=""
"iUpdateFrequency"=dword:00000000

Save the MST and run the installation this way :

msiexec /i AcrobatReader601 TRANSFORMS=YourMST.MST /q (or /qb! if you want to see the progress bar)
