    Question Adobe Reader 11.0.2 Update

    Hi Guys,

    I am having problems getting this package onto the system. I am downloading the .exe, running {FileName}.exe" -nos_ne

    This runs the package in the normal way although in the past it has just extract files into a temp location without actually running the setup

    Then im grabbing the files from the temp folder then running msiexec /a "AcroRead.msi" /p "[update name].msp to try and apply the .msp update to the package.

    All im getting is an error to say product is already installed or theres a problem running the .msi


    Has anyone successfully applied update 11.0.02? If so please can you let me know what im doing wrong / the correct way of doing it?

    Are you just getting the EXE from the normal consumer download or have you applied for the distribution licence?

    They should extract to - %ProgramData%\Adobe\Setup

    Then grab the files. Use the adobe customisation wizard to make any changes and install by running the .exe

    The AcroRead.msi is version 11.0.1, i want to patch it to 11.0.2 but it comes in the form of a .msp not a .msi including the update

    Just created a script to install the update at logon but its got errors on my machine.

    There must be an easy way to upgrade packages with .msp files

    Logon script? No wonder it fails, the user won't have permissions. Use it as a startup script.

    Sorry i meant startup script.

    I have sorted this now, had to run msiexec /a "AcroRead.msi" /p "[update name].msp with the 11.0.01 patch before it would allow me to run the command successfuly on the 11.0.02.msp. Effectively this upgraded ArcoRader to version 11.0.01 then to 11.0.02 but both had to be applied in order. You can't just patch the .msi it comes with straight to 11.0.02. Might be helpful for others to note.

    Changes were made to the AcroReader.msi and it now stands at version 11.0.02, added to a group policy and deployed successfully.

    Thanks for your help
