Scripting Question

Best way to install Adobe Reader 11.0.11 msp file.

05/28/2015 26919 views

I have been tasked with updating our Acrobat Reader 11.0.10 to 11.0.11, it's a msp file. I am new to scripting, GPO etc and would like to know the best way this can be done. I believe I may need to make a new package but am not sure how to do it, the more I read to more confusing it seems to get. I think I need to use a the Adobe Tuner as well. We would normally do it through GPO.

Thanks in advance for the help.

  • Use the KBOX patching engine to push it out. It is easier that want and you don't have to know command lines. Just assign the patch to a label and schedule it to go out.
    • Nope doesn't work - doesn't matter what you do this does not work.
  • Thank you for the reply I will have a look to familiarize myself but I have to use the script and GPO process that is approved for use on the network.

If you can't patch from the K1000, you'll need to create and configure your GPO (maybe to utilize a Startup script). Once you do, I would use a .bat file to deploy the patch with this command included:

msiexec.exe /p AdbeRdrUpd11011.msp /qn

Make sure you include the full path to your AdbeRdrUpd11011.msp file before the file name so your machines can run it from that location
