Adobe Flash/Reader Post Installation task not installing
09/13/2018 1009 views
Hell All, I have been beating my head against the wall for days trying to get Adobe Flash and Reader DC (v. 31) to install as part of a scripted installation. I have gone through countless forums and tried every command/switch known to man that I could find.
I did download the distribution versions from Adobe
I want to be able to install these silently, but my task keeps failing... is there any working parameter that will install these softwares?
Some of the commands I have tried:
msiexec /i "install_flash_player_31_active_x.msi" /quiet /norestart /qn-quotes
msiexec /i install_flash_player_31_active_x.msi /quiet /norestart -No Quotes
msiexec.exe /i install_flash_player_31_active_x.msi /quiet /norestart -No Quotes
msiexec.exe /i 'install_flash_player_31_active_x.msi' /quiet /norestart -Quotes
msiexec /i "install_flash_player_31_active_x.msi" /quiet /norestart /qn- Quotes
msiexec /i install_flash_player_31_active_x.msi /quiet /norestart /qn- No Quotes
Adobe Reader DC
AcroRdrDC1801120058_en_US.exe /sAll /rs /msi EULA_ACCEPT=YES
msiexec /i AcroRdrDC1801120058_en_US.exe /qn-No quotes
msiexec /i "AcroRdrDC1801120058_en_US.exe" /qn-quotes
msiexec.exe /i AcroRdrDC1801120058_en_US.exe /qn-No quotes
msiexec.exe /i "AcroRdrDC1801120058_en_US.exe" /qn-quotes
I am going crazy over this! lol any help would be MOST appreciated.

Where on Earth did you get the 'Quotes', 'No Quotes' from!?! Run MSIEXEC on its own and it will present a dialog box with all the valid arguments, none of which contain "quotes"!
Also, with regard to posts like this, always, always, ALWAYS use a path when specifying files. Generally speaking, prepending the filename with '%~dp0' and no trailing backslash will suffice.
Lastly, for MSIs, always, always, ALWAYS log the installation because, if it fails, you won't have a single clue why.
msiexec.exe /i install_flash_player_21_plugin.msi /qn
msiexec.exe /i "%~dp0install_flash_player_21_plugin.msi" /qn /l*v %windir%\TEMP\install_flash_player_21_plugin.log"
