get the correct MSI out of the adberdr10.exe file
running the command adberdr1014_en_us.exe -nos_o".\installfiles" -nos_ne will unpack the installation files. It makes and msi and exe and an msp file. the MSI file does not seem to be right, as it is the 10.1.0 install. the 10.1.4 is a seperate installation patch called adberdrupd1014.msp. What do I do with these files? I want to be able to run it all 100s of machines that will vary from having no prefevious adobe, to adobe 9, to adobe 10.1.3. There seems to be no good explanation of how to deploy acrobat reader 10 with KACE.
currently, adobe seems to package their files like this. An MSI for major and minor versions. ie 10.1 and 10.2 would have their own MSIs. An MSP for build/security updates. ie 10.1.4 requires there to be 10.1.0 installed and then have a seperate MSP that updates from 10.1.0 to 10.1.4. According to dandirk, you can combine these MSI and MSP files:To merge: msiexec.exe /a "[path to .msi file]" /p "[path to .msp file]" although I did not test this.

I'm not sure if it's Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat your trying to package.
For Adobe Reader I suggest you get the MSI from: http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/distribution.html
For Adobe Acrobat, always use the Adobe Customizer Wizard: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=4950
