Adobe Reader is a PDF viewer, similar to Foxit_Reader.

Downloading the Software[edit]

Adobe offers 2 general flavors of the install file (both free to use). The standard one for normal users and an enterprise package for system administrators. There are NO third party (or Adobe) add-ons if you download the enterprise version from their distribution center.

Which ever installation file you use, please note that you need permission in order to redistribute Adobe Reader, even inside a corporate network. You can find information about obtaining this permission here: http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/distribution.html

Normal Version[edit]

All the files are downloaded from ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/. The English version is in the directory "en_US", or "enu" for older versions.

Enterprise Version[edit]

You can apply for a license here: http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/rdr_distribution1.html?readstep

Don't worry this doesn't cost anything and only takes a few minutes to fill out the form and receive your agreement certificate.

Once you have the distribution agreement, you can download the enterprise distribution version from here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise

This package generally comes as an exe file but you can open it with a using an archival utility like 7-zip to pull out any files you need.

Usually you'll only need the following files:

  • AcroRead.msi (equivalent to the AdbeRdrxxxx_en_US.msi)
  • Data1.cab

If you get stuck, Adobe provides loads of help and resources for enterprise deployment.

Customization Wizard[edit]

The .mst file is made with Adobe Customization Wizard. You will need to follow Adobe's instructions and recreate the MST each time you apply a new patch. More info at Adobe.com

Versions[edit]

For Acrobat 9 update to latest minor version, you need to install all previous Quarterly released versions. Please refer to Adobe's guide for detailed explanation.

For Acrobat 10 update to latest minor version, you need to only install the initial release, the latest Quarterly, and any out-of-cycles release after the latest Quarterly

Packages[edit]

Installing according to host attributes[edit]

The package below simplifies installing different versions according to host attributes.

For instance, Adobe Reader X is only supported on Windows XP and above, so for Windows 2000 Adobe Reader 9 must be installed.
The package below highly simplifies this, since you only apply one package to all hosts, which determines the version to install.

    <package
            id="AdobeReader"
            name="AdobeReader"
            revision="2012.01.01"
            reboot="false"
            priority="10"
            execute="once">

        <!-- install version 9 on Windows 2000 -->
        <include package-id="AdobeReader9"  os="5\.0\.\d{4}"/>

        <!-- install version 10 on Windows XP and above -->
        <include package-id="AdobeReader10" os="(5\.[1-9]|6\.\d)\.\d{4}"/>
    </package>

Acrobat Reader DC[edit]

You can download the DC version from ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/AcrobatDC/. Adobe Customization Wizard DC is available here. Adobe Reader DC only supports Windows 7 or later versions. For Vista use Adobe Reader XI

 <package
    id="adobereaderdc"
    name="Adobe Reader DC"
    revision="%version%"
    priority="50">

    <variable name="version" value="15.010.20059" />

        <exit code="0" />
        <exit code="3010" reboot="false" />
    </install>

        <upgrade include="install" />

        <remove cmd='msiexec "%SOFTWARE%\adobereader\AcroRdrDC%baseFileVersion%_%langCode%.msi" /qn /x' />
 </package>

Adobe Reader XI[edit]

You can download version 11 from ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/11.x/. Adobe Customization Wizard 11 is available here. This package uses the .msi extracted from the .exe. The .msi from the ftp site can also be used.

Adobe Reader X[edit]

You can download version 10 from ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/10.x/. The Tier 1, 2, 3 and 4 .msp packages which are available are for specific language versions. The Tier 1 version is for English, French, German & Japanese.

Adobe Customization Wizard 10 is available here. You can also deploy it without a transform but you won't be able to customize the installer. There are command line switches available in section 3 of the Adobe Enterprise Administration Guide.

Relevant info about updating/patching Adobe Reader 10 at adobe.com. Note that the update MSP file for Reader 10 includes all previous patches for that 10.x version, so one for 10.0.3 will update a 10.0.0 installation. Installing it this way means that an MST file need only be created for each 10.x version.

Updater[edit]

Since version 10.1 updates are performed using a Windows Service called AdobeARMservice (or "Adobe Acrobat Update Service"). According to the Acrobat-Reader Updater configuration guide you should add the following directive to the msiexec installer command above

   DISABLE_ARM_SERVICE_INSTALL="1"

to disable updates altogether.

Adobe Reader 9.3[edit]

Patch 9.3.4 can be downloaded from ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.3.4/misc/AdbeRdrUpd934_all_incr.msp. However in order to update from 9.3.0 to 9.3.4, first 9.3.2 and 9.3.3 must be installed. These can be downloaded from ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.3.2/misc/AdbeRdrUpd932_all_incr.msp and ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.3.3/misc/AdbeRdrUpd933_all_incr.msp.

The remnants of some older versions of Adobe Reader can cause 9.3 to fail to install the plugin correctly, causing a "The Adobe Reader that is running cannot be used to view PDF files in a web browser..." error. The solution that worked for me was to get WPKG to delete the "Program Files/Adobe' directory after uninstalling version 8. To do this, add the following XML snippet after the uninstall of 8.1.2.

  <!-- Delete the adobe folder -->
    <install cmd='%COMSPEC% /C del /Q "%PROGRAMFILES%\Adobe" ' >
        <exit code="0" />
    </install>

Note that you should not do this if you use other adobe software. In that case, you may need to delete the other Adobe Reader folders in your Adobe folder/s

Uninstaller wouldn't work using this:

<remove cmd='msiexec.exe /uninstall {AC76BA86-7AD7-1033-7B44-A90000000001} /qn /norestart'/>

Uninstaller would work using this:

<remove cmd='msiexec /qb /uninstall "%SOFTWARE%\adobe-reader\AcroRead.msi'/>



See Talk:Adobe_Reader for some more info on uninstalling.
