Software Deployment Question
Adobe Acrobat Pro X K2000 issues
I'm having trouble deploying Acrobat Pro X in a K2000 scripted install.
I have a batch file that calls 2 .msi files and 1 .msp (for the most recent update)
start /wait msiexec.exe /i "%wd%AcrobatProX32-Bit.msi" /qn
start /wait msiexec.exe /i "%wd%AcroPro.msi" EULA_ACCEPT=YES /qb
start /wait msiexec.exe /p "%wd%AcrobatUpd1011.msp" /qn
I used the Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition to create an install for just the Acrobat Pro portion of CS6. This is the silent installer AcrobatProX32-Bit.msi
This installs without problems.
Then I transform the AcroPro.msi file with a .mst file specified in Setup.ini
This is where I run into problems. The AcroPro.msi will start to install and then hang with 2 seconds remaining in the install. When it hangs, the postinstallation tasks that follow Acrobat start to install and Adobe never gets a chance to finish installing. This also prevents some of the other tasks from installing correctly.
I've tried adding a quick 5 minute wait batch file using:
timeout /t 300 /nobreak
Acrobat just waits for this file to finish and the next task starts.
This batch file installs Acrobat correctly on it's own, it just freaks out in scripted installs for some reason.
In my scripted install, I've got this as the first piece of software that installs. Everything before that is Windows settings stuff. The only tasks that install before it are:
Disabling UAC, Enabling Remote Registry, Disabling Guest, IE8 Customizations, .NET 1.1 install, Creating local accounts, Making BIOS changes, Disabling Windows Firewall, and Enabling Remote Desktop.
My next step is creating a script that is just the Acrobat Install and a 5 minute wait after it to see if it still hangs.
Any suggestions on how I can get Acrobat to play nice in the K2000?
