    Registry entry to force install of reader updates?

    grittyminder

      Greetings!

       

      I've been trying to deploy Reader updates across our network via GPO but it's been a real, real hassle. Also, because some of the client PCs are connected via slow links the install time is sometimes excruciatingly long (computer configured GPO).

       

      SMS is not an option right now, so I'm thinking that rather than use GPO to centrally manage reader updates I throw up my arms and leave it up to the users. So my question is if there is some sort of a registry setting that will force Reader updates to install once they are downloaded from the Internet. Or, alternatively, if there some sort of login script available that would check if there was a Reader update available for installation and forcibly install it. Or, alternatively, if anyone has figured out a better way to deal with the Reader GPO deployment nightmare.
