Maybe someone can help me with the following?

I have adjusted the MSI file from Adobe, so the complete installation is now customised to our company standard.
However, when I start the application after installation, it gifs an irritating registration message. You can choose to press the button "Later". After this, the next time I start the program the message doesn't come up any more.

My problem is that I don't know when the application will ask to register again, "Later" is a relative thing..

Possible Solution:
The following REG KEY and VALUE are created after pressing "Later":
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\6.0\Registration]
Now my guess is, that there is a different value, that results in a very long registration period.

So my Question is, does anybody now how I can fix this problem? Maybe with the registry key I pointed out, maybe with a different one?

Manny thanks in advance.

1. can you detail for us what you customized in the .msi, and what tool you used to do it?

2. Every version of Acrobat has proven fickle to deploy. Although version 6 is in .msi, it can still be troublesome. I have had the greatest success using Adobe's InstallShield Tuner for Acrobat to create a transform and an administrative installation point.

I use Wise 99% of the time or more when creating or editing .msi. Acrobat falls under that 1% where I try not to touch it with anything but the Tuner.

Adobe has released a tuner for the Acrobat-family you can make the change there. http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/deployment.html if you don´t want to use that I can look at what changes the registration.

Add the following DWORD key to your package:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\6.0\FeatureLockDown\bRegisterProduct=0

How do you add this in to a MST for MSI file. As it is not letting me add anything in to the registry.

Add that key using a transform file.

Also, if you find that you can't add keys. make sure you're NOT in a Read Only view...
