I have done a script to install Adobe reader 9.1.1 and if version 9 is installed, then it installs the patch.
if not "%ECHO%"=="" echo %ECHO%
title ..:: Workstation Software Manager ::..
echo This program will install Adobe Reader v9.1.1
echo. & echo You must let this script run to its end,
echo Any issues, call call "IT Support" on ext xxxx
echo. & echo Checking for Adobe Reader 9...
if exist "%PROGRAMFILES%\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe" (
echo Adobe Reader 9 installed. Patching to 9.1.1. Installing...
msiexec /p \\location_of?_patch\AdbeRdrUpd911_all_incr.msp /QN REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=omus
) else (
echo Adobe Reader 9.1.1 not installed, installing...
MSIEXEC /I \\location_of_msi\AcroRead.msi ALLUSERS=TRUE TRANSFORMS=\\srvmeth17\SIS_Public\IIT\Adobe\Adobe9\AcroRead.mst /QN
:END OF SCRIPT
Works fine on all XP Sp2 machines. XP Sp3 machines its failing. Either the batch file script just vanishes or freezes and nothing gets installed.
I tried the script it seems easy enough but. It says my Adobe Reader version is at 9.1.1 but when I go into add/remove programs the 9.1.1 update is not in there for me to add or remove. When I click the .msp file and install it, it appeared in the add/remove programs section in control panal. If the program says its updated, is it really updated if its not in add/remove programs?
