Dear all,

I have followed the instructions for updating Acrobat 7 Standard using the correct volume updates from version 7 - 7.05 from the packages section. I have used MSIEXEC from the command line on Windows Server 2003 to patch the acrostan.msi. I was successful in updating the msi to version 7.05 without any errors. I have also created an mst file using Adobe's IStuner7 (which is a handy tool!).

When deploying to an XP SP2 workstation using GPO I get the following error:

Product: Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Standard -- Error 1334.The file 'AcroIF.dll' cannot be installed because the file cannot be found in cabinet file 'Data1.cab'. This could indicate a network error, an error reading from the CD-ROM, or a problem with this package.

The msi appears to be looking in the wrong place as this file is in program files/adobe/acrobat 7/acrobat. This folder was added by the 705 msp updater to the parent folder.

Any help would be great.

I am getting the same error. I have also seen it fail on a ROMAN.txt_xxxxxxx file. Anyone figure this out yet?

I repatched mine and it worked.

1) copy Adobe CD over to a local drive
2) Run Tuner and make the required changes and generate a new .mst
3) Do an admin install
msiexec /a acropro.msi TRANSFORMS=acropro.mst
4) Copy MST to admin install point
5) Copy patches Ac705PrP_efgj.msp, Acro707.msp, Acro708.msp to the admin install point
8) map to network install point then run the patches
msiexec /a Z:\apps\Adobe7\AcroPro.msi /p Z:\apps\Adobe7\Ac705PrP_efgj.msp;Z:\apps\Adobe7\Acro707.msp;Z:\apps\Adobe7\Acro708.msp
9) Now you can install 7.0.8 with
msiexec /i "\\server\apps\Adobe7\acropro.msi" TRANSFORMS="\\server\apps\Adobe7\acropro.mst" REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qb-

Using full paths in step 8 was one of the tricks that I think threw me off. I get no missing data1.cab files errors now.

I'm had the same problem. I've run it twice with full paths still get the same error. It fails on the ROMAN.txt_xxxxxxx file not found error. Finally tried running it on the admin install and it worked. Duh!

Thank you, schieb!
Would to God that all forum posts were as clear, concise and relevant as that one!

(Except this one, of course)
