How do I customize Acrobat Reader 11 for silent installation?

Hi I have to install acrobat reader X1 silently. I am not given AdbeRdr11000_en_US.exe file, instead I am given setup, msi, ini files. I want to run a customization wizard to create an mst file. I don't know how to do it. Please help

  • AdbeRdr11009_en_US.exe /sAll /rs /msi EULA_ACCEPT=YES

    This has worked for me and previous versions I have used. - akilpatrick 6 years ago

The Customization Wizard is a tool availabe from Adobe to allow you to customise the MSI you have with a nice GUI to provide the installation options you require.

It would appear that the Customization Wizard for XI has not been released yet. It's apparently going to be released early November 2012 - http://forums.adobe.com/message/4776537#4776537

When it is released it will be availabe here - http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=1&platform=Windows

If you can't hold on until it's released you'll have to create an MST to perform your customisations.

A good start may be to use the Customization Wizard for X, with Reader X installation files, and see what that MST contains  - you may be able match the settings up in your MST for XI.

 

Hope that helps,

Dunnpy

/sPB Silent Mode with Progress Bar for product

/rs Reboot Suppress

/rps Reboot Prompt Suppress

/ini "PATH" Alternative initialization file

/sl "LANG_ID" Set Language; LANG_ID - Code in decimal digits

This is what we use, it's not using the wizard but it works great for silent installs that disable the welcome screen:

AdbeRdr11000_en_US.exe /msi EULA_ACCEPT=YES /qn

You can get the .exe and the .msi here: ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/11.x/11.0.00/en_US/
