Install Adobe updates via WSUS and ignore UAC restrictions

Jul 24, 2012 10:58 PM

Hi

 

My company has currently set new UAC security settings but we have an issue where we are not able to update Adobe products because UAC stops it, UAC also does not prompt for elevation it just out right blocks updates.

 

We really need a way to either allow the updater to run/install past the UAC restrictions OR find a way to distribute adobe updates via WSUS if it's possible

 

Thanks

    Hi,

    Can you answer the following,

    1. Are you able to install other WSUS updates (other than Adobe Acrobat and Reader) ?

    2. Also can you share the CCM logs (UpdatesHandler.log) file at the clients machine ?

    I'd expect a corporate to have a support contract with Adobe. Check with your licensing people to see what you have.

    Have you looked through the Enterprise Deployment Resources? (There's also an Enterprise Deployment Forum which might be a better match).

     

    If that doesn't help, you wrote: "I read something about being able to install an Adobe add-on or something like this" - this is pretty vague, what did you read - what is the URL?

    So you are able to install all updates from Microsoft from WSUS. What I wanted to know, if you could also install any Non Microsoft updates??

    This information is required so as to ensure that your client is capable of installing any Non MS updates too. I have tried Acrobat and Reader 10.1.3 on my Win 7 clients with UAC On. And there does not seem to be any issue.

     

    UpdatesHandler.log file can be found under, C:\Windows\<<System32 or SysWow64>>\CCM\logs

    Start with the available documentation:

    • Admin guide: describes deployment methods
    • Pref ref: describes a subset f configurable options.
    • Updater guide: describes Updater/UAC behavior, but is this an issue if you install as an admin using one of the methods described in the admin guide?

    I'm looking at the same thing, distribute all Adobe updates with WSUS without using SCCM/SCUP (that's too expensive).

     

    I did find Local Update Publisher for WSUS, maybe that is our solution?

    Hi, in our company, we're using Wsus Package Publisher (http://wsuspackagepublisher.codeplex.com/). This allow you to publish Non-Microsoft updates or applications to your Wsus server. It is compatible with Wsus 4.0 (Wsus on Server 2012).
