[Guide] Packaging Adobe Reader 10.1.4

1 post in this topic

Here is a quick guide to packaging Adobe Reader 10.1.4 for deployment in your environment.

While this was my method, there are obviously multiple ways to deploying this, and I appreciate you refraining from posting any negative comments.

I hope atleast one person finds this useful.

----------------------

Download 10.1.0 Full MSI

ftp://ftp.adobe.com/...r1010_en_US.msi

Download 10.1.4 Update

ftp://ftp.adobe.com/...r1014_en_US.exe

Download 10.1.4 MSP

ftp://ftp.adobe.com/...eRdrUpd1014.msp

Download Customization Wizard

http://ardownload.ad...z1000_en_US.exe

Extract 10.1.4 update exe using WinRar, 7zip, etc.

For this example, I extracted to c:\Install

Delete everything but Setup.exe and Setup.ini

Copy AdbeRdr1010_en_US.msi and AdbeRdrUpd1014.msp to the new folder (c:\Install)

Rename AdbeRdr1010_en_US.msi to AcroRead.msi

Rename AdbeRdrUpd1014.msp to Update_1014.msp

** While renaming is not necessary, its easier to read.

Open your new AcroRead.msi in the customization wizard, change settings to silent, and make any additional changes.

Generate a new MST from the 'Transform' option. Save the MST as 'AcroRead.mst' in C:\Install

You should now have five (5) files in the install folder.

-AcroRead.mst

-AcroRead.msi

-Update_1014.msp

-Setup.exe

-Setup.ini

Open Setup.ini.

Under the last line of [setup] add a new line with the following:

--------------

CmdLine=/sall /rs

--------------

Under [Product]

Modify to match the following:

--------------

[Product]

msi=AcroRead.msi

PATCH=Update_1014.msp

CmdLine=TRANSFORMS="AcroRead.mst"

--------------

Save and close the ini.

Import your new package into SCCM, or whatever deployment method you have, and choose the setup.exe.
