I am trying to deploy Acrbat 6.0 Profissional with patches 6.1 - 6.3 in one package.
I did some information on this.

This is what I found.

:: This the official Adobe way of doing the update. The executables extract
:: an internal MSI. Problem with this scenario is that setup terminates
:: before the install is complete, making it useless for batch file scripting.


msiexec /i Pro\AcroPro.msi ISX_SERIALNUMBER=1118-1413-6736-5593-0451-2704 /qb!
Ac60PrP1.Exe -s -a "/p Ac60PrP1.msp REINSTALLMODE=omus REINSTALL=ALL REBOOT=ReallySuppress/qb!"
Acro-Reader_6.0.2_Update.exe /s /v/qb!
Acro-Reader_603_Update.exe /s /v/qb!

::alernative using the files extracted by the above executables in the temp directory
:: when using the msiexec in this manner there is no weird calling of a second process
:: and batch files handle the install correctly

start /wait msiexec /i Pro\AcroPro.msi ISX_SERIALNUMBER=xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qb!
start /wait msiexec /p 601files\Ac60PrP1.msp REINSTALLMODE=omus REINSTALL=ALL REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qb!
start /wait msiexec /i "602files\Adobe Acrobat - Reader 6.0.2 Update.msi" /qb!
start /wait msiexec /i "603files\Adobe Acrobat and Reader 6.0.3 Update.msi" /qb!

Thr first install of Acrobat 6 works. I was getting errors when the 6.1 patch tried to install.
I tried the following variant.

start /wait msiexec /i "z:\apppath\%parentdir%\Pro\AcroPro.msi" /L* "c:\acro\Acropro_install_log.txt" ISX_SERIALNUMBER=xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx REBOOT=ReallySuppress Patch = z:\software_deoploys\%parentdir%\601files\Ac60PrP1.msp /qb!
start /wait msiexec /i "z:\apppath\%parentdir%\602files\Adobe Acrobat - Reader 6.0.2 Update.msi" /qb!
start /wait msiexec /i "z"\apppath\%parentdir%\603files\Adobe Acrobat and Reader 6.0.3 Update.msi" /qb!

I now got a message when the 6.1 patch was applied that switches were invalid. I also got this when the 6.2 and 6.3 patches were installed.

Has anyone installed the Acrobat Pro 6 and all of the patches using the gpo and single .bat file?

Thanks,

Eric

I used Winzip to get the MSP/MSI's out of the Adobe patches and I'm using SMS to deploy them with command lines very similar to yours.

see here for more details.

I believe that 6.0.1 is a msp unlike 6.0.2 and 6.0.3 which are mis's -- you'll need a different set of switches for 6.0.1.
