I'm having issues trying to deploy Power PDF within KACE.  Here is the command line that I use.  msiexec /i /qn "Kofa_Power_PDF_Advanced.msi" SSETPRODEFVIEWER="1".

The SSETPRODEFVIEWER is the command to set as the default viewer for PDF files.  Other than that it should work. I've noticed this posting back in 2014 https://www.itninja.com/software/nuance-communications-inc/nuance-power-pdf-advanced/1-14104

Other than that, that's all I see. I was wondering if anybody else is having an issue deploying Power PDF within Kace.

Is your software being installed correctly?


Or is this an issue with setting the PDF as default?


I'm saying this because setting a software by default via CMD has become... very troublesome in Windows 10 1809 and 1903.

I would suggest using GPO or a separate Powershell Script to set Default associations with INSERT SOFTWARE NAME here.

  • Well, the software is not even being pushed to the client. So, I'm not sure that it's been installed correctly.
    I might take your advice and have the software installed through GPO.
    • You should be able to install it via KACE Scripts or Managed Install.

      Could you post a screenshot showing how is the Managed Install or Script currently configured?
