I need to roll-out patches 7.1.1 (and eventually 7.1.2 and 7.1.3) to our entire organization of 7.1.0.
I have two commands which I am testing:
1. msiexec /quiet /patch 711.msp
2. msiexec /patch 711.msp
I need to use command 1. as I do not want my users to be faced with any installation GUI's. However after running the first command Reader's Help/About screen reports it as still being 7.1.0 (although Add/Remove Programs reports it as being version 7.1.1).
Furthermore, I use a directory/file comparison tool (binary comparison) it reports the contents of the ...Program Files/Adobe as being no different to before having applied the 7.1.1 update using command 1. from above.
So, it seems, when I add the /quiet switch (or /qn or /passive which I also tried) the only thing which is actually updated is the version number for Reader in 'Add/Remove Programs' but not any of the files themselves.
When I use command 2 from above none of these issues are demonstrated - Help/About in Reader reports it correctly as being version 7.1.1 and my directory/file comparison tool shows changes to a number of .dll's and .api' and other files.
For some reason, whenever I add /quiet or /qn or /passive the update is not being applied.
I have attached the log file outputs (by adding the /log switch to the above two commands). They are both greatly different and they both report a successful patch.
Please note I have tried this on a number of different machines and I do not believe this issue to be isolated to our SOE.
Any help is much appreciated.
Sorry - I made a mistake attaching the two log files.
command_1.txt is actually the log file for msiexec /update 711.msp
command_2.txt is actually the log file for msiexec /update 711.msp
