With the unified DC program, where is the option to change the upgrade to Pro now if admins choose to?

If the installer is set to install initially as Reader (which removes the sign in buttons and won't prompt for sign in), how do we now upgrade the program from Reader to Pro? Do we just have to uninstall Reader and install Pro?

There may be a shortcut to avoid an uninstall, but I am not aware of it. I would just go ahead and unisntall Reader and start the installation again, but this time for Pro.

Seems kind of silly to have a unified installer then if you can't convert from Reader to Pro

Take a look at the last comment in this thread, it lists two registry keys that play a role in this: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/automatic-upgrade-from-acrobat-reader-dc-to-pro/m...

I believe you're referring to my post where I list the keys to stop the Enterprise Reader from allowing upgrades. In this one, I'm asking how to allow it when using the unified installer. Different installers and different setups with the Acro Cust Wizard

Sorry about that, I should have realized that this was your post.
