I needed to deploy Acrobat Reader to our client PCs but with some of the settings like auto update, default pdf, shortcut and online features predefined for the users. I learned that Adobe has a great tool which makes the creation of the MST file a lot easier. But before I could use the customization wizard I needed to uncompressed the file and create an administrative install point. Below are the steps I made, hopefully it will help someone else.
Download and install Adobe customization wizard ( make sure your download the version that corresponds to the version of the reader)
Download Adobe acrobat from direct link
- http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise/Search for Direct link
Extract the content of the downloaded file to its own folder
- Create folder
- Open the command line as administrator and enter the following command.
AdbeRdr11009_en_US.exe -nos_o”C:\Temp\AdobeR1109\AdbeRdr11009″ -nos_ne
- The following should be in the extracted folder
