I am trying to deploy Adobe acrobat X standard through the K2000. every time the deployment comes to the install it keeps asking input. I uploaded the Adobe Standard zip file and ran the setup.exe /adminfile (MYFILE).msp /verysilent Command and it works just not silently. I tried different flags like /q but always the same result. Is there anyone who can direct me on how to apply the proper flags so that it can deploy without user input.

  • I don't think Adobe use a Microsoft-style set-up stub so your command line arguments will be being completely ignored.

    Extract the MSI, create an MST using the appropriate customisation tool (downloadable from Adobe's site) then use MSIEXEC and its arguments to deply.

    Search IT Ninja's knowledge base: someone's bound to have documented the entire shebango.
  • Adobe provide their own tools, as mentioned by VBScab, for configuring their software for enterprise deployment. Use the appropriate tool and you will avoid all the problems you are having now.

I have had much better success using the .msi file with the MST file for Acrobat X (http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=4950) and using /qn for silent mode...but that is for the msi...

I believe the switch to use with the exe is /sALL. Let me know if that works or not.
