I am trying to upgrade the network installation of Reader 10 to Reader 10.01
I downloaded AdbeRdrUpd1001_Tier4.msp and when I run the update using this command:
msiexec /a acroread.msi /p AdbeRdrUpd1001_Tier4.msp
I get the following errror:
The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the WIndows Installer service because the program to be upgraded
my be missing.....etc
I've used the above process when upgrading through the various Reader 9.3 and 9.4 versions.
Any ideas why 10 is different
Can you please let me know what is the language of the Reader you are trying to update. There are separate patches for Reader 10.0.1 based on the language of the base installation i.e. language for Reader X.
You can refer the following link to find which patch you should apply/use:
That’s was it. I had the wrong language pack
Glad it worked.
Can you please mark the thread as closed so that others can refer the same henceforth.
