Hello,

I am fairly new to do this so any help would be greatly appreciated. I am going through some training videos SCCM 2007 and I went through the part of creating software package and distributing.

I did the following
I created a package for Adobe Acrobat 8.1.3 and put this in the command line as per the video
AdbeRdr813_en_US.exe /sAll /rs /msi"EULA_ACCEPT=YES ALLUSERS=2"

I received a program error then I went on this site and tried this command
AdbeRdr813_en_US.exe /sPB /rs /l /msi"qb-! /norestart /log c:\acrobat8.log ALLUSERS=2 EULA_ACCEPT=YES SUPPRESS_APP_LAUNCH=YES"

I received the same error message program message here it is

The program for advertisement "TST20004" failed ("TST0009" - "Adobat Acrobat 8.1.3 Install"). A failure exit code of -529697949 was returned.
User context: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM

Any ideas whyat might be wrong.

Thanks

I don't know the switches for the Adobe installer (and, TBH, if it were me, I'd extract the MSI and run MSIEXEC directly instead) but I think your problem is with the switches you're passing to the Windows Installer engine (which is, in fact, MSIEXEC). Try:AdbeRdr813_en_US.exe /sPB /rs /l /msi"qn /l*v %temp%\acrobat8.log ALLUSERS=2 EULA_ACCEPT=YES SUPPRESS_APP_LAUNCH=YES REBOOT=R"
By way of explanation:
- /qn
No user interface (you had '/qb-!' - basic UI, no cancel button)
- /l*v
Log everything (you had '/log' - meaningless)

Note that I use %TEMP% for the log. That's where it belongs, not the root of C:!

D'oh! I left off the very first 'slash'. Try:AdbeRdr813_en_US.exe /sPB /rs /l /msi"/qn /l*v %temp%\acrobat8.log ALLUSERS=2 EULA_ACCEPT=YES SUPPRESS_APP_LAUNCH=YES REBOOT=R"

Since you're new to SMS/SCCM (perhaps even deployments in general) I would recommend you make a practice of first trying your installations (along with all flags/parameters) manually to ensure it installs as expected and THEN create the deployment via your tool. This is going to help you isolate issues a little better and in turn give you a stronger understanding of what is failing where.

G'luck,

Hi,

I have installed the Adobe on the pc and it worked fine. There was no special parameters or flags just the default installation. I am not sure about what tool. But I am just using the SCCM software distribution. I created the package as what was defined on this site for Adobe 8.1.3.

Is there something I'm missing?

Thanks

If you extract the MSI, and use the Adobe Customisation Wizard (available from their website), you can create a tranform with your required settings. I've never had an issue with deployment using this method on SMS, SCCM, Altiris or GPO. It's also a shorter command line (less room for input error), and you can tweak the hell out of it with the "customised" tool.

Version 9 has a tool also, if you were thinking of upgrading to that.
