    Installation error 2709

      Hi all,
      I just downloaded AdbeRdr90_en_US_Std.exe and extracted the contents("c:\temp\Adobe Reader\AdbeRdr90_en_US_Std.exe" -nos_o"Reader9" -nos_ne) to edit the AcroRead.msi file prior to installation. I used Orca to edit the msi file and followed steps in the deployment guide to prevent adobe updater installation. See below:

      In the Component table, drop any row containing AdobeUpdater or Adobe_Updater
      In the Feature table, drop any row containing AUM or Updater
      In the FeatureComponents table, drop any row containing AUM or Updater
      In the File table, drop any row containing AdobeUpdater or Adobe_Updater
      In the ModuleComponents table, drop any row containing AdobeUpdater or Adobe_Updater
      In the MsiFileHash table, drop any row containing AdobeUpdater
      In the Registry table, drop any row containing Adobe_Updater

      Upon testing the install I received the following popup error message.

      >>>>
      Adobe Reader 9 Installer Information
      Eror 2709. The specified Component name ('Adobe_Updater.exe.77F6876D_C3C1_484B_B77B_3052FB676E32') not found in Component table.

      OK.

      I click OK and it stops the installation. This is where the fun begins. I've deleted the old msi, redownloaded, uninstalled, kicked, etc. No matter what I do I always get this bloody error. I've searched the registry and find zero reference to it. Anyone else dealt with this and know how to fix? It would be muchly appreciated.

      Thanks,
      Mark
