Application AIPs

Trying to understand an AIP and how I thought it is supposed to be used. The purpose of an AIP is to be able to keep the AIP updated by applying patches (.msp) to it. When a patch is applied to the AIP the version will change. To keep current installs synchronized with the AIP you would run the following command? msiexec.exe /i \\server\aip\some.msi REINSTALL=all REINSTALLMODE=vomus

Do I have this right or am I missing something? Doing the scenario above I am getting an error that "Another version of this product is already installed..."

Joe, you're correct.

I'm trying to think why you might be seeing that message when you've clearly selected a reinstall...

I wasn't going to mention that the product is Adobe Acrobat Pro 8 since that A word seems to automatically illicit a negative connotation in peoples brains. So a piece I might be missing with an AIP is that the AIP can only be one patch ahead of current installs? If so, is that in general or only with Adobe?

Adobe's documentation is getting better I suppose but I could not find this question addressed in any of their docs for Acrobat deployment and management.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
