Deploying Adobe Reader 10.1.1. Problems...
I'm trying to deploy Adobe Reader 10.1.1 using GPO. This has worked well with Flash, but is proving to be far less easy with Reader.
I have applied for and received authorisation from Adobe to distribute Reader, and via their provided link got an EXE file for distribution. Except this is of no use because I need to distribute an MSI.
Their administration guide states that I need to create an AIP, but it seems that I can only do that from an MSI as well (see section 3.2 of their guide).
Other guides have suggested I can just download an MSI directly from Adobe's FTP site, and this guide in particular gives details on how to patch 10.1.0 to create a suitable 10.1.1 install. Although Adobe's FTP site already has an MSI version for 10.1.1.
The practical upshot though is if I try and attach any of the aforementioned MSI's into the GPO (via I get the error: Add operation failed. Unable to extract deployment information from the package. Run validation on the package to ensure the package is correct.
Can anyone advise what I'm missing?
