    Adobe Reader updates

    I visit a school once a week to look after their IT needs and they are having issues with Adobe Reader prompting users to update. However, the system is currently setup to not give them the ability to update and therefore they requested for that to be suppressed. A colleague of mine added an ADM file to an All Users/All Computers GPO to stop these updates but users are still being prompted to update. Does anyone have any ideas as to what else I can do to sort this out? I am there this afternoon (16/01) and have a lot to get through so would like to be prepared as much as possible

    FYI, they are a Server 2008R2 with Windows 7 Pro x64 clients

    You can do it via a regedit or GPP:

    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe ARM\1.0\ARM
    Code:
    iCheckReader set to 0

    You can also, when deploying the MSI, deploy an MST transformation with custom settings in. Download and install Adobe Customisation Wizard XI on your machine, change the settings you want to (e.g. disable updates, suppress EULA) then next time you push out an install you can add the transformation file in.

    I do not have the option for that path...the only path for Adobe I am seeing is:

    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\POLICIES\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\11.0
    and then the option to set a value

    What about if you try searching for iCheckReader in the Registry?

    This right here is how you want to do it. I've also got a script for when I need to install it by hand that will flip the switches to use the transform and install silently.
