I am preparing a master image to from which to clone vSphere virtual machines. The master image has Acrobat Pro 2017 installed , using the Adobe Provisioning Toolkit to generalize the installation, creating the prov.xml and importing this onto the image. Below is the command used.

On the cloned VM's when opening Acrobat we are prompted to sign-in. After testing we discovered that if the account is a local admin, it will not be prompted to sign in. I believe it is trying to write something to HKLM or restricted local file system that the normal user account does not have privileges to. Does anyone know where and why please?


adobe_prtk --tool=VolumeSerialize --generate --serial=****-****-****-****-****-**** --leid=V7{}AcrobatESR-17-Win-GM --regsuppress=ss --eulasuppress


adobe_prtk --tool=VolumeSerialize --provfile=prov.xml --stream
