I created a transform for Adobe Reader 9.4.0 through Adobe Customizatino Wizard. I just made some standard changes(like disable All Updates/Suppress Reboot/Silent Install etc). But when I run the MSI with switch(msiexec.exec /i "adobe_reader.msi" Transforms="adobe_reader.mst"/qb) it don't just display progress bar with a completion message and don't install the application.

Anyone have any idea or faced the same issue, then please help me. I need to deploy updated adobe reader in production environment very soon and not able to keep ready the silent package for Adobe Reader 9.4.0

Thanks,
Dinesh Kashyap

(msiexec.exec /i "adobe_reader.msi" Transforms="adobe_reader.mst"/qb)

Is this a typo it should be (msiexec.exe /i "adobe_reader.msi" TRANSFORMS="adobe_reader.mst"/qb)

also I normally use the /qb+ as this gives you a modal dialog box displayed at the end

Hi,
You can use following command for silent installation,

msiexec.exe /i "adobe_reader.msi" TRANSFORMS="adobe_reader.mst"/qn

And remember, too, that /l*v [path to log file] will generate a verbose log file:
msiexec.exe /i "adobe_reader.msi" TRANSFORMS="adobe_reader.mst"/qb!- /l*v "<path>\logfile.logYou can then open the log file, check for the string "Return value 3" and look a few lines above that, and that will generally give you a hint (if not more) as to why the install is failing.

I did not find anyd "Return value 3" (only found Return Value 1) in the log file. I have already tried with all above mentioned swithes, but are not working at all.

I need to disable automatic updates in Adobe Reader 9.4.0, so what is the registry value though with I can disable all these along with (Check for Updates & Purchase Adobe Acrobat).

Pleae help.

Did the log file show that the transform was being applied?

All the customisation information for Adobe Reader is in the Package KB.
