Is there a tool or method to build an inventory of Adobe Reader installed on computers in a domain?
This would allow specific targeting of Adobe Reader updates to the computers who needed it, say from version 9 to version 10.
In case you have any deployment system like GPO in place, you can use a simple startup script to check for the presence of the following registry key(s):
A system with any version of Reader 9 installed would only have Registry (ii) whereas a system with Adobe Reader X would have registry (i) present.
You can collect the information based on the same.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for trying out the suggestion.
I guess the machines that you have, are 64 nit machines, and so the registry key would be located at:
You can modify the script to look for these keys instead on 64 bit systems while look for the earlier mentioned keys on 32bit systems.
