ADobe 9.3 not installing silently


I am using the Adobe Cust Wizard to push out Adobe 9.3. We are using SCCM 2007. Every time I test the install, it prompts me for an installation folder. It does not install it silently which is what I have set in the Customization Wizard. Just to test we added Per-user unattended and attended and Per-system unattended and attended installs. If we add all four 2 of them prompts for the installation folder and the other 2 does install silently but ignores things like putting the icon on the desktop where we had disabled that setting. It looks like its not reading the transform file. How can I get the installation to go silently with out user intervention?

You might not have save all the changes you made. Open the Adobe Customization wizard select the AcroRead.msi file and then customize all the setting including the run silent command in installation options and then you can also select that it creates a sms file at save so all you have to do is create a new package from definition and point it to that file. Also do not select the run hidden when making the SCCM advertisement.

Perhaps a more fundamental question... How are you calling the transform in your SCCM command line? If your command line doesn't look like:

msiexec.exe /i "acroread.msi" TRANSFORMS="acroread.mst" /q

Then that's the first thing that needs to be fixed. It sounds like you've successfully generated a transform, but simply aren't calling it when you install. One other thing to check might be the modified date on the transform, make sure that the MST's modified time is the same as the last time you tried to generate a transform. That will tell you whether the file was generated successfully or not.
