I have already setup the MST for AcroPro.msi and it works great if I install it via the command line using...
msiexec /qb! /i AcroPro.msi TRANSFORMS="AcroPro.mst"

Unfortunately, when I try to deploy it through Group Policy by using the publish feature with the same MSI and MST it does not work. I get an "Internal error 2753. Updater.api".

I have used The Customization Wizard 8 to setup the MST and in the GPO it is set to upgrade Acrobat 7 and Reader8. Is there something I am doing wrong? I am pretty new to all of this and have only been successful installing small packages with few options.

Would I have better luck using WISE studio or is the setup I created ok? Has anyone else out there been successful at deploying this package?

That sounds strange, but here's what I would recommend.

After creating the MST using the Customization Wizard, you can just use the Group Policy editor to point to the AcroPro.msi file, but select Advanced, instead of Assign when adding the package. Under the Modifications tab, add the MST file.

Then again, your problem could be that you're upgrading Acrobat 7, instead of uninstalling it. Acrobat 8, has many new features and a lot of the core files are different from Acrobat 7. In the Customization Wizard, you should set Acrobat 8 to uninstall all previous versions and install 8 on its own.

That's my two cents.
