Download and Install Latest Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Continuous Release

1 Shares

Adobe is well known for it’s security vulnerabilities and it’s therefore very important to included their updates in your Patch Tuesday schedule.

I asked on Twitter what automated tools people where using to patch, and the replies where Choco, PDQ DeployNinitePro and Adobe Updater.

I started out my testing using Adobe Reader DC 2015.007.20033.02 and then patching it with the MSP file provided by Adobe. By accident I stumbled upon this link which contains both the updated installer and the patch file. The release notes can be found here for the Continuous Track.

So as part of my Patch Tuesday routine I find the latest versions of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Office 365 and Adobe Reader and then simple update my installer scripts with new $URL and $Version.

Thanks to my Powershell mentor Bronson Magnan we now have an evergreen automatic download of the latest Adobe Reader version. Community Rocks.

That’s it. If in doubt you can always use the built in Adobe Updater (as Administrator) to check the status.
