I have been working on a custom installation of Acrobat Reader to roll-out to >200 workstations in our field offices. This project is not my primary domain, but I understand the steps involved. I am running into a roadblock getting from 10.1.0 to 10.1.3.
I understand how to:
*Unpack the .exe
*Create the customization file with the Wizard
*Repack the .exe
However when I reassemble the files, and run the .exe, it keeps me at 10.1.0. For some reason it doesn't seem to be registering the .msp file. I have reviewed various threads on this topic, but frankly none of the explanations make sense.
Could someone tell me what I am doing wrong?
If you're using a bootstrapper workflow rather than an AIP, read the bootstrapper section in the Admin Guide.
If that doesn't help, describe all your steps, the exact point of failure, and any errors you see.
Thanks for the response. From my understanding of the Administrator's Guide I am using a "bootstrapper" workflow. I am simply creating an .exe after I prepare the customization file. I don't receive any errors in the process. It just installs 10.1.0 rather than 10.1.3.
Sorry to be slow... I don't see an option for uploading files. So I guess you want me to open the .ini file in Notepad and show the data? Here it is:
Thanks again for the help.
From what I see from the screenshot (10.1.3 extraction) your exe is corrupt. It should also have the 'AdbeRdrUpd1013.msp' file when you extracted the contents 'AdbeRdr1013_en_US.exe'. You can again try downloading the 10.1.3 exe from the Adobe.com website (http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise/). Select the appropriate platform and version of reader (10.1.3 in this case).
Extract the contents of the exe (AdbeRdr1013_en_US.exe) using the below command line:
> AdbeRdr1013_en_US.exe -sfx_o"C:\users\vinod\Desktop\10.3Rdr" -sfx_ne
This will extract the contents in the folder "C:\users\vinod\Desktop\10.3Rdr"
You can then use the msp 'AdbeRdrUpd1013.msp' to patch your systems. The final setup.ini should look like this:
Let me know, if you find any issues.
