Install Adobe Connect for all users on PC?

04/04/2017 2704 views
Adobe Connect only installs in the profile of the person running the installer.

We have AppLocker preventing unsigned files and it seems that Adobe Connect's installer only installs to each user profile and the installer is using unsigned files and magically auto delete immediately when the install finishes (on success or failure). 

This means we can't use the hash of the files for the applocker rules, we can't use a blanket adobe signed files (obviously). 

Spoke to Adobe and they said that there is no way to install it for all users.

I am attempting to just install via K1000 as system and see what happens, but I do not have high hopes for that.

  • I also had this question but didn't do as much research as you. I also couldn't find a fix, hoping someone might know.
  • I created a manual software Item called "Adobe Connect 9"
    And ran a Custom inventory: RegistryValueEquals(HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Adobe Connect 9 Add-in, DisplayName, Adobe Connect 9 Add-in)

    Once I installed it on a test machine then it populated in Inventory\Software.

    I then uploaded the installer "Setup.exe"

    This allowed me to create a distribution against that item.

    Running this:
    AdobeConnectAddinInstaller.exe /verysilent

    This seems to work.
  • Also you can use above to createa smart label called:
    m_Computers without Adobe Connect 9 V 11 Plug-In
    and then create a script to run as the logged in user which calls the installer as above.
