Software Deployment Question

Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro

10/13/2010 5477 views
With the Adobe Customization Wizard 9, I've made a mst for Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro. I also made an AIP in which I slipstreamed the msp's.
I can silently install the package without reboots. In the the property table you can see that RebootYesNo is set to NO.

But when I use msiexec /f package.msi transforms=package.mst /qb, then at the It gives me a popup which says:
"You must restart your system for the configuration changes made to Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro..........."
Als when I use /norestart in the msiexec line it will give me the messag.

What can I do about it to avoid this message?

did you add the property REBOOT=ReallySuppress

Sometimes you're just staring blind at one issue, that you forget the simple things. Thanks, it was this option. I thought the customization wizard would take care of Reboot Yes No but appearently it doesn't. Again, thanks.

The package works....manually.

I published the package Advanced into Radia. In basic mode it would not install. I think this is because I made an AIP to slipstream the patches in it.

Now in advanced mode it takes longer so I thought, this would be good. But no, I got an error in the event logs which says: Erro 1907 Could not register font.
Installation stops and nothing is installed. The error also mentioned 'Permissions" could be a problem. But Radia does this install on the system account so that should not be an issue.
If I just copy the AIP folder my testmachine an manually started the msi with msiexec. In that way, Acrobat Pro is installed without errors...

Should it help to make a msi from the AIP again? And how should I make a new MSI from the AIP?

If the MSI (and presumably an accompanying MST - you are disabling auto-updates and such, I hope) works manually then, to my mind, Radia is getting in the way.

Repeat both installs but with a verbose log (don't rely on the Event Log) and compare the result.
