I'm doing a install of Acrobat 9 pro, but at the same time I want to update it with all the updates.

updating with 1 update works perfect when i use this command:
msiexec /i "AcroPro.msi" TRANSFORMS="AcroDesign.mst" /update "Updates\AcroProStdUpd910_T1T2_incr.msp" /qb

but i want to do all the incrementing updates, i tried this (yes, i'm pretty new at this, only been doing this for a few months):
msiexec /i "AcroPro.msi" TRANSFORMS="AcroDesign.mst" /update <Updates\AcroProStdUpd910_T1T2_incr.msp>[;Updates\AcrobatUpd911_all_incr.msp] /qb
but it's not working, it returns with the MSIEXEC commands window
once i found out how to do this, I’ll add the rest of the updates...

i would appreciate some advice...

Patching clients that way is too painful to bear. M U C H simpler would be to creat an AIP, patch that and perform subsequent installs from the AIP.

Hi freak,
do you know slipstreaming installation?
just keep your patch files in updates folder of source, and trigger the main installation, and check by default those updates are getting installed or not?
you can try, i am not sure, this will work for adobe or not. it works for microoft office 2007

I am also searching on internet about that.

I think Adobe's CS apps are the ones which use this wretched new methodology with patches. Reader still uses the traditional method so an AIP is the way to go.

Admin install is the way to go. Tons of info out there on how to create admin install and patch, simple google search will get you the correct steps.

Only concern I have is the issue I ran into with the serial number once the admin install point is upgrade...not sure what the solution ended up being (I think I just got lazy and applied it seperately, off on different customer now so don't recall :P )

Thank you for all your advise and help.

i however went a different way. and it's proven to work.

what i did:
in SMS i created my package for adobe, with a install command:
msiexec /i "AcroPro.msi" TRANSFORMS="AcroDesign.mst" REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qb
to installl Adobe, in the same advertisement i let the updates install directly after with this command:
msiexec /update updates\AcroProStdUpd910_T1T2_incr.msp;updates\AcrobatUpd911_all_incr.msp;updates\AcrobatUpd912_all_incr.msp;updates\AcrobatUpd913_all_incr.msp REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qb

and it all is working fine...
