        Not really sure, I haven't messed around with the customization wizard using this method.  With all the headache I was just happy to get it deployed at all.

         

        Here's one of the pages I was looking at for random tips.  It might be helpful:

        Good luck!

         

        UPDATE: I found something on another post that might help.  Keep the setup.exe and setup.ini from when you extract the original EXE file and copy those into your deployment directory.  Then you should be able to run the Adobe Customization Wizard X and make a transform (mst) file.  I made one but haven't tested its deployment yet.

          Hi,

           

          It works well.

           

          With .exe and .ini files I can create the transform file and the deployment works with my changes.

           

          Many thanks for your help.

            Thank you so much ludwigmace23!

             

            I had extracted the MSI from the 10.1.3 exe downloaded from the Adobe site and after creating an API was recieving the same error as the OP when trying to install.

             

                 Product: Adobe Reader X (10.1.3) -- Error 1334.The file 'adobearmhelper.exe' cannot be installed because the file cannot be found in cabinet file 'Data1.cab'. This could indicate a network error, an error reading from the CD-ROM, or a problem with this package.

             

            I have downloaded the 10.1.0 exe from your FTP link, applied the patch to that and its all sweet now!

             

            If you don't want the prompt for a directory to appear at this point:

                 Get the EXE and extract like so:

                 AdbeRdr1010_en_US.exe -nos_o"Reader10" -nos_ne

             

            Just include a network or drive location e.g.

            AdbeRdr1010_en_US.exe -nos_o"c:\Reader10" -nos_ne

             

            Thanks again!

             

            Now come on Adobe, get your act together and provide a proper enterprise deployment tool!!!

              Hi ludwigmace23,

               

              The guide you have posted works for me.

               

              But in this way, it is not possible to make changes with the Adobe Customization Wizard.

               

              How do you make changes like suppress eula, disable desktop shortcut, deactivate online functions and such things?

               

              Is there a way to do this with registry changes?

               

              I made my transform by customising the 10.1.0 msi package and then applied it as normal when creating my assignment GPO.

                Rick,


                Here's, how you can incoporate MST file in your install.


                msiexec.exe /i <AIP distribution point dir path>\ <ProductName>.msi TRANSFORMS=<AIP distribution point dir path>\<ProductName>.mst


                Let me know, if you need more information.

                 

                Regards,
