    Automated installation of Reader 9 using Group Policy

      Is it possible to automate the roll-out of Reader 9 in Windows using Group Policy? Could someone point me at a how-to?

      If it was distributed as a .msi file, I'd have no problem.

      Thanks.

          There is an MSI. Run the installer but don't finish it. Look in the temp folder (I think %temp%\Adobe\Acrobat\9.0) for the acrobat files and copy them to the desktop temporarily. Then install this:

          It will allow you to customize the install and create the MST. There is a bug with v9 though that doesn't allow you to open PDF's within a browser window. Just a FYI.
