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)
If I would like to silencely install several specified languages, is there any other switch to do that?
Thank you all in advance.
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.
I'm using Adobe Reader X MUI version and I tried your way but doesn't work unfortunately.
I attached the setup.ini content below =>
1033=English (United States)
And I used the switch of "Setup.exe /sAll /rs /ini "setup.ini""
My OS is Windows 7 Ultimate.
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.
Additional question, how can I preset the setting to "Same as the operating system"?
You can find the setting from "Edit" - "Preferences.." - "International" - "Application Language".
It seems the default setting is "Choose at application startup".
Glad that it worked for you. The language codes are as below:
To set the startup langugage the same as the Operating System's, please refer to the page at:
Thank you for your LANG_LIST table and it's really helpful!
But regarding to set the startup language same as operating system, the KB artical works for current user only, how can make it work for ALL users?
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.
Thank you for your comment.
But seems doesn't work...
I verified on MUI system (EN base OS with French language pack).
Here are my steps:
1) Install Adobe Reader via "start /wait msiexec /i AcroRead.msi LANG_LIST=FRA /qn"
2) Merge registry key as below (Mine is Win7 64bit OS, and Adobe Reader X doesn't have "Language" key by default so I newly created one)
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
3) Sysprep the system via "sysprep /oobe"
4) Choose French in Windows Welcome (OOBE)
5) Launch Adobe Reader but it still pops up "Choose Language" box.
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.
Yes, I can make sure the string regkey type is REG_SZ, please refer to my snapshot.
But I found that, if I add "UseMUI" key under current user, then the issue can be solved, so the issue seems happen under the following condition =>
No "UseMUI" under Current User registry but only under Local Machine.
How to make it work if add "UseMUI" under LOCAL MACHINE ONLY?
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:
Make sure "acrord32.dll" is in the Data field of both "current" keys and the "next" key.
In Adobe Reader X the UseMUI key is a REG_DWORD
I added the UseMUI key under the HKLM hive as well, but I'm not quite sure whether or not it's really necessary.
To install only a limited number of languages you can go to the Direct Editor and change the value of the LANG_LIST property:
Hope that helps. Good luck!
Thank you so much for your information.
Yes, this workaround works on current user, but can not work after I new create an account.
Under the new created account, it displays English no matter what OS language it is.
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..
