How to install several specified languages for Adobe Reader X

Jun 16, 2011 7:21 PM

Hi guys, just question that how to silencely install several specified languages for Adobe Reader X?

I know some silence switch as below:

 

setup.exe /sAll /rs

=>  Silencely install all supported languages

 

setup.exe /sAll /rs /sl "xxxx" (xxxx is LANG ID)

=>  Silencely install one specified language only (defined by LANG ID)

 

Question:

If I would like to silencely install several specified languages, is there any other switch to do that?

 

 

 

Thank you all in advance.

    Hi,

     

    I am assuming that you are trying to install Reader MUI since thats the only way you can get the Reader installed in different languages on your system.

    For the same please refer to the following link:

    Hope this helps.

    Can you please try following the second step on the page i.e. installing using the command:

     

    msiexec /i AcroRead.msi LANG_LIST=DEU

     

    This will install Adobe Reader in German and English languages. You can launch the preferred language(d) application by holding Control and double clicking on the Adobe Reader shortcut.

     

    Thanks

    You can create the same key in HKLM and not HKCU (i.e. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\10.0\Language\UseMUI).

    That should install Reader MUI for all users with the operating system language as the application startup language.

    Can you ensure that the registry key that you have created is a string key (REG_SZ). I tried the same thing on my 64 bit machine and it worked without any issues. I got the required language interface without any language pop up dialog.

    Hi,

     

    I had the same issues, but was able to resolve it as follows:

     

    In the Customization Wizard change the data according to the attached images:

    AR1010_1.PNG

    Make sure "acrord32.dll" is in the Data field of both "current" keys and the "next" key.

     

    AR1010_2.PNG

    In Adobe Reader X the UseMUI key is a REG_DWORD

    • Data = 0 ~> Application Language = Choose at application startup
    • Data = 1 ~> Application Language = Same as the operating system

     

    I added the UseMUI key under the HKLM hive as well, but I'm not quite sure whether or not it's really necessary.

    AR1010_3.PNG

     

    To install only a limited number of languages you can go to the Direct Editor and change the value of the LANG_LIST property:

    AR1010_4.PNG

    Hope that helps. Good luck!

    If you perform the installation using a custom transform file created with the Customization Wizard as described above, the appropriate registry keys will be created automatically for each user once she starts Adobe Reader for the first time. I tried it on several test clients and it worked properly, no matter whether I logged on with an existing username or a new one..

     

    For more detailed information, I'd like to recommend Aaron Parker's great and easy to understand deployment instructions. Please take a look at http://blog.stealthpuppy.com/deployment/deploying-adobe-reader-x/
