Does anyone know how to do a silent install from the setup.exe? The closest I could get was by running setup.exe /silent, but the progress bar still popped up, although it skipped the first screen where you click next.
It's reasons such as the one in this post why I personally hate ALL Adobe products. Why is this unanswered? I now need to silently deploy this to 1,500 computers, yet do you think I can find the necessary support docs on your horrible site? No! If I had my way Adobe wouldn't get anywhere near anybody's computers until you clean up your act!
On the subject of deploying the Adobe Acrobat Connect Add-in (the setup.exe required for presenters / moderators to be able to upload presentations), how is this typically accomplished?
Company policy here is not to allow our users to run executables, and apparently it doesn't work if installed by an administrator for the users as the installation has to run under the users profile? Is there an MSI package or something that I can deploy this Add-in with?
If you download the add-in installer named setup.exe, and you do a right-click -> properties -> version, you will see in the Comments that it is an Innosetup file.
Going to www.innosetup.com, you can click on "Documentation", then "Other Information", then "Setup Command Line Parameters".
There you will find that the Command Line parameters to do a silent installation are:
Disables the This will install... Do you wish to continue? prompt at the beginning of Setup. Of course, this will have no effect if the DisableStartupPrompt [Setup] section directive was set to yes.
Instructs Setup to be silent or very silent. When Setup is silent the wizard and the background window are not displayed but the installation progress window is. When a setup is very silent this installation progress window is not displayed. Everything else is normal so for example error messages during installation are displayed and the startup prompt is (if you haven't disabled it with DisableStartupPrompt or the '/SP-' command line option explained above).
