Unattended : Adobe Acrobat Reader 9

0 Shares

The new version of Adobe Reader is out and it’s supposed to be faster and better. Though the integrated Shockwave & FlashPlayer will be interesting in a Terminal Server Environment.

I’ve created a script for silent installation :

[sourcecode language=”plain”]

@echo off

REM Install Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.0
REM Written by Trond Eirik Haavarstein

pushd %~dp0
cd ..

set AppSourcePath=%CD%Source
set AppConfigPath=%CD%Configuration
set AppInstallPath=%CD%Scripts
set AppHotfixesPath=%CD%Hotfixes

set LogFile1="%temp%AcrobatReader90.log"
set Switches=/qn ALLUSERS=1 REBOOT="ReallySuppress"
set MST=TRANSFORMS=1044.mst

cls
echo.
echo Installing Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.0
echo.

cd %AppSourcePath%
start /wait msiexec /i "AcroRead.msi" %mst% %switches% /liewa %LOGFILE1%

REG ADD "HKLMSOFTWAREAdobeAcrobat Reader9.0AdobeViewer" /V EULA /t REG_DWORD /d "00000001" /f

popd
endlocal

  1. Does this fix the problem of running Adobe 9 on a Citrix server with roaming profiles turned on?

    Thanks

  2. There is no problems that I’m aware of running Adobe 9 in Terminal Server environement with romaing proiles. But ofcourse it depends on your romaing profiles settings.

  3. We don’t redirect APP data, though we do redirect other folders (documents, desktop, etc). However, Windows Server 2008 (TS) does use a UNC on the appdata path and thus causes the same problem. No fix yet for this that I’ve found (other than some scripts to change appdata to a drive letter instead of a UNC).

  4. In case anyone comes across this post, the %AppData% redirection problem was fixed in subsequent versions of Adobe Reader 9.0. Upgrade to 9.1.x and you should have no problems.

    Cheers.
