Can anyone please advise what the silent switch is now to install adobe reader dc 15.023 for the exe as I cant find any msi installer and the usually silent switches are all failing. This s getting very tiresome as they seem to keep changing the switches from one release to another.

I have tried these so far and non work.

Looks like Adobe have reorganised their web site. Again. I do wish web site designers were given the job of keeping all old links working, FIRST, and then adding fabulous new stuff SECOND. Anyway, the enterprise deployment guide is here Acrobat-Reader Enterprise Toolkit Home  and the Forum for discussing it is here: Enterprise Deployment (Acrobat and Reader)

If we would have to read the manual to answer you, we prefer that you do it.

Try reading the question. OP said they couldn't find the MSI and therefore the answer of "go read the MSI manual" is less than useless.

I'm just going to through it out there... One of the key teachings for A+ Certification is read the manual. If you have looked at the documentation and still need assistance, then, go ask for help. I get some manuals are pretty thick, and even hard to understand... But this documentation flat out lists the switches and how to do everything pretty clear. One shouldn't be upset when asked to go read the manual especially when it is as clear as this one.

Also, the problem is that it's the wrong manual.  The OP specifically asked about exe switches.  This manual is for MSI switches.  I guess understanding things isn't the job of a sysadmin?

The ACTUAL answer to this question is /sAll. I don't know why Adobe makes this so hard, but this works:

setup.exe /sAll

Yes, I always thought that reading the documentation was the sysadmin's job. Indeed, it's having read the documentation that makes them a sysadmin...

Well, of course the other mark of a sysadmin would have been to offer the right documentation, not a completely irrelevant link.   😉

When typing this

AcroRdrDC1901020098_en_US.exe /?

These are the available parameters

Therefore, i tried

AcroRdrDC1901020098_en_US.exe /sAll /rs

BTW, i am pushing this install/update/upgrade via PDQ Deploy as I needed this be pushed right away.

This parameter allowed me to deploy the latest Acrobat DC.

The documentation covers how to extract the MSI and MSP from the EXE, which is the starting point for most choices in deployment.

I must say I am surprised at the attitude of people who claim to be sysadmins but don't want to read a manual. To me the sysadmin is basically an ordinary user who is prepared to read manuals. Yeah, yeah, we're all busy, read the damn manual.

Must say...  Came here looking for official documentation for our tech's repository, and I was shocked at the attitude from the company itself.  The community, not the company, provided not only the solution, but also the correct documentation.  Adobe was wrong, and then got mad that they didn't have it together.  Perhaps I'll madate Foxit and Phantom, as your updated EULA which allows for the collection of PII is rubbing me wrong to begin with.

What they said ^

If you're not sure, you can almost always type setup.exe /?

Adobe Reader DC also has an .msp and a .ini file that control some things.

Basically, setup.exe calls AcroRead.msi, and then the .msp file updates it to the most current version.  The .ini file is what calls out which .msi and .msp setup.exe uses. 

You should also download the adobe acrobat customization wizard, which you can use to change the behavior of the install.  You should really read the manual though, they spell it all out.
