I got the same message, but I have an old link from them, which does NOT include the "don't post this link" disclaimer, so I'll post it!
On another note, it appears you can now download the redistributable straight from the Adobe site. Just say "Download latest version". The link from there is:
And then extract the files using the command line options as listed in the 'Deploying Reader 9' pdf at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/acrobat/pdfs/deploying_reader9.pdf
ex: c:\Foo>AdbeRdr910_en_US_Std.exe -nos_ne -nos_o"Acrobat"
Thanks, Brett. I will use that one for testing until I get the appropriate link from Adobe to distribute. Working for the government, I have to be careful about license issues.
Also, if you don't want to use the Adobe Online stuff, there is another thread in this forum with a link to the Adobe FTP version that comes without all of that. I say this because using the link I gave, even if you use the Customization Wizard to disable all online features, they still install and work fine anyway (multiple people have reported this issue here). The version from the FTP doesn't include any of it at all, so no worries then.
You can use the customization wizard's direct editor to remove the custom action that initiates the Airinstaller as well.
Thank you both. I already have a script in place to care for all of the "extras" that are packaged with the installer. I had to do that because some "system coordinators" felt they had to install the public version which installs everything by default.
I'm using the Customization Wizard to create an mst to push out the new 9.1. The check box for "Remove previous versions of Acrobat" is grayed out and checked. I have a few users who have both Reader and Acrobat. I don't want the Reader upgrade to touch Acrobat. Does anyone know a way around this? Thanks.
While this post should be on a new thread, it has been my experience that the Adobe Reader 9.x installations do not touch Acrobat (any version) except to make itself (Reader) the default program to open/view PDF files (if you so choose). I am familiar the greyed out box you refer to but it seems to be misleading in its context.
I hope this helps.
Quick question about those FTP Files... has Adobe reversed the file naming/contents logic? STD vs non-STD
In the earlier 9.0 file area, the STD file is much *smaller* then the non-STD file. I used the STF file to build my local installer because this one didn't did include any of the AIR stuff.
Now, In the new 9.1 file area, the STD file is much *larger* then the non-STD file.
Looks reversed to me.... anyone know if we should be using the 9.1 non-STD file if we don't want AIR?
It's obvious that the naming has been reversed; maybe Adobe thinks that the STD version should contain AIR and Acrobat.com...?
does anyone know if there is a customization wizard for Adobe Reader 9.1?
yes it's called customization wizard 9.0
Well Thank You, Simon!
I was also wondering if there was an update to the Adobe Configuration Wizard 9.0 because I am having an issue creating an MST for Reader 9.1.
I downloaded and extracted Reader 9.1 and ran the MSI on a machine. We have an Intranet with PDFs for paycheck subs and I was able to open the paycheck PDFs fine.
I then used the Adobe Configuration Wizard 9.0 to create an MST for Reader 9.1. I installed using the MST and I receive two different errors when trying to open paycheck PDFs.
Error 1: When Display PDF in browser is NOT checked under Edit, Preferences, Internet
There was an error opening the document. This file cannot be found.
Error 2: When Display PDF in browser IS checked under Edit, Preferences, Internet
The Adobe Acrobat/Reader that is running cannot be used to view PDF files in a Web Browser. Adobe Acrobat/Reader version 8 or 9 is required. Please exit and try again.
I then used the Adobe Configuration Wizard 9.0 to create an MST without any changes, just to see if there was something I was selecting during the MST creation that might be causing the problem. After installing Reader 9.1 with the MSI and vanilla MST, I still received Error 1 and 2 above.
Bottom line: when I install with the MSI it works fine, but as soon as I install with an MST created with the Customization Wizard it no longer works.
Has anyone seen this behavior?
I have the same problem. I'm testing which setting in the transform kills the PDF in browser. I'll keep you posted.
I found that changing the setting to choose Acrobat or Reader as the default viewer under Installation Options killed the ability to bring the PDF up in Internet Explorer. Leaving the option at the default (Installer will decide) works.
