PDF file association changes to use Acrobat after Acrobat installed

Tags: #file #acrobat #install #association #msi #package



I have packaged a silent installation of Acrobat X Professional using the Customisation wizard.  We have to make Reader the default viewer (without using a script after the install).  No matter which option I select for the default viewer in the customisation tool (as shown below), Acrobat X Professional becomes the default viewer.  I am trying to add or modify the installer database table so that it leaves the current association with Reader.



Any ideas?

    Hi Simon,


    Try please this.


    Msiexec /i AcroPro.msi IW_DEFAULT_VERB=Read TRANSFORMS=Acropro.mst /qb


    This should work.
