My guess is this runtime is causing my Group Policy deployment to fail.
What is the best way to disable it (or install the runtime)? In the Group Object Editor? Customization Wizard?? Edit the MST in Orca?
Just pre-install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP (x64) before you attempt to install Acrobat XI on a 64 bit system. That package is a requirement for Acrobat to install on a 64-bit systems so you need to install it.
Yeah thanks, for now, we can manually install (or make another GPO) MS Visual C++ 2010 SP1 on select desktops in our domain. I can't think of other software we use that need it.
What a shame, this adds a messy step to the deployment of Acrobat XI..

As mentioned above the using IGNOREVC10RT=1 in the install string will allow the installation to run successfully. Visual C++(x64) is only required if Office 2010 x64 is also installed. If you are only installing with Office 2010 x86, then there is no reason to preinstall Visual C++(x64) and IGNOREVC10RT=1 should be used.
For those of us just installing Acrobat Pro XI vs. deploying it, BillerDude saved my day! I run 32 bit Microsoft Office, just as Microsoft recommends most people should, so I don't need the Visual C++ runtime library.
- Executed the digital download purchase to extract the contents to a folder on the deskop.
- Opened an command prompt (admin, just to be safe).
- Navigate down two levels to the subfolder where ACROPRO.MSI and SETUP.EXE are
- Run the install with this command:
- Voila! Installation begins without that nasty Visual C++ error.
