I have Acrobat Pro 11 scripted, with 3 MSP update files I want to install. I zipped everything up, and run a batch file that includes the code below. It installs the main AcroPro.msi just fine, but the updates aren't applied, and every post-install after that fails. Anyone have a similar issue when scripting acrobat pro?

Everything runs fine when executed directly in Windows. 

start /wait msiexec /qb /i vc_red.msi
start /wait msiexec /qb /i AcroPro.msi TRANSFORMS="AcroPro.mst"
start /wait msiexec /qb /p AcrobatUpd11001.msp
start /wait msiexec /qb /p AcrobatSecUpd11002.msp
start /wait msiexec /qb /p AcrobatUpd11003.msp

start /wait /i AcroPro.msi TRANSFORMS="AcroPro.mst" PATCH=AcrobatUpd11001.msp;AcrobatSecUpd11002.msp;AcrobatUpd11003.msp /qb.


The other way they show is:

msiexec /p msipatch.msp;msipatch2.msp /n {00000001-0002-0000-0000-624474736554} /qb

  • Thanks - I'll try that. Seems that applying the MSP to the MSI before hand might be working too.
    • cool, anything that works!
  • Definitely going to bookmark this page for when I run into more stupid Adobe updates in the future though!
