Software Deployment Question
Acrobat deployment with MST and MSP failing
What should the syntax be to deploy Acrobat from the User Console Library as an Install?
The syntax below along with the SET option for the variable succeeds when run as a batch file and double clicking it on a machine. The PATHTOINSTALL is on a network share accessible by all. It's our long standing SDP. But it fails when I run it from the User Console Library. I zipped up the entire install including the MST I created and the 11.0.10 MSP and uploaded the zip as an "Install" to the User Console Library.
When run with the variable path, it opens the msiexec help window.
%PATHTOINSTALL%\Setup.exe /sPB /rs /msi PATCH=%PATHTOINSTALL%\AcrobatUpd11010.msp TRANSFORMS=%PATHTOINSTALL%\AcroPro.mst
When run with the full path typed out, it returns "Error applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform paths are valid.

If %PATHTOINSTALL% contains any spaces, you'll need quotation marks around the msp, like so:
Interestingly enough, you don't need to specify the path to the transform, just the patch file - even if everything is in the same folder. Frustrating but true.
