I just patched Adobe 7.0 to Adobe 7.0.5 and then 7.0.7.

Now, when I went to uninstall it via command line, and used:
msiexec /x {AC76BA86-1033-0000-7760-100000000002}, it uninstalled Adobe completely.

Question - how can I only remove the patch and not Adobe completely??

My need is to do it via command line and not via Add-Remove Programs.

thank you !

I will give that a shot !

Though, when I tried the MSIEXEC /I {AC76BA86-1033-0000-7760-100000000002} MSIPATCHREMOVE {patch GUID} /qb, I got the message "Uninstallation of this patch package is not supported"

I'm not sure if I correctly remember how Adobe Acrobat 7.0.x handled patching, but isn't there an entry in Add/Remove Programs for the Adobe Acrobat 7.0.7 patch that you can select and uninstall in order to roll back to Acrobat 7.0.5? If so, look up the UninstallString for this entry in the registry under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{ProductCode}. You can search for it by going to the Uninstall key and searching for the display name that you see in Add/Remove Programs (e.g. "Adobe Reader 7.0.7").

Test out this uninstall string to see if it correctly rolls you back to 7.0.5. If it's an MSIEXEC command, change the /I to /X.

MSIPATCHREMOVE, I believe, is a Windows Installer 3.x command. Adobe was most likely built using an older version of Windows Installer, so this command would not be supported.
