pushing adobe

I have a Adobe Acrobat XI Pro version 11.0.23 and the required file to use to update Adobe Acrobat XI Pro version 11.0.0 is AcrobatUpd11023.msp    This is not working.  msiexec.exe /i AcrobatUpd11023.msp TRANSFORMS="AcroPro.mst" /qb /L*v c:\acrobat.log

I know I'm doing something wrong within the syntax.  I'm learning this process as I go and would really appreciate some guidance on this task for a positive resolution.    oh, the above command is being used in "override default installation".  Your timely response o these concerns, will be greatly appreciated.

Do you have all the files zipped up including the transform file? If that is attached to the Managed installation that should work as the msi can then find the transform.

Best practice for deploying software that requires more than just a single msi file it to create a zip with all files needed in. Use a proprietary zip product, not windows zip to do that and name the file with a .zip extension. Attach the zip file to your software inventory item or software catalog item and create the managed installation from there. Use the manual command line override to install. KACE will then download the zip and unpack then run the command line, if all the files needed are unpacked I.e. the transform file it should work fine

The problem you're encountering is that when you combine a patch and transform file into a single commandline, you need to specify the path for both of those files.  Leverage the following syntax to point at the source files:


You can find details of the syntax on this site.  Here's a small example from an old package:

msiexec /i "%~dp010.1.3\04\AcroRead.msi" TRANSFORMS="%~dp010.1.3\04\InBrowserDisplay-Disabled.mst"
