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
The Adobe Customization Wizard XI has now been released and is available on this link: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=1&platform=Windows
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,

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

That is it.
