Unattended : Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.1.2 working with AppData


Adobe Reader 912

Adobe recently released the Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.1.2 Update. Finally it fixes the problems people are experiencing with Roaming of Application Data on Terminal Servers.

Download Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.1 English / UK and extract the files with this command : C:AdbeRdr910_en_US_Std.exe -nos_ne

All my scripts are based on the ScriptFrameWork developed by Joe Shonk. The script normally uses two folders, Source and Scripts. Copy the extracted files from %UserProfile%Local SettingsApplication DataAdobeReader 9.1Setup Files and paste it into your Source catalog.

Download the Adobe Reader 9.1.2 Update and copy it into your Source catalog.

Then create an Install.cmd file in the Scripts catalog and paste the script from below. Because of the CSS on my blog be sure to search and replace all the ” ” in Notepad which will cause the script to fail!

I would recommend you to check out my favorite blog Stealthpuppy.com by Aaron Parker who has created a custom transform file for Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.1 and also Group Policy ADM/ADMX files. A lot of detailed information in this blog.

I’ve created a script for silent installation :

@echo off
REM Install Adobe Acrobat Reader 912
REM ScriptFrameWork by Joe Shonk – www.theshonkproject.com
REM Customized by Trond Eirik Haavarstein – www.xenappblog.com

set LogFile2=”%temp%Adobe Acrobat Reader 912 Update.log”
