Hey everybody!

I have a program that silently installs Adobe Reader 9.4 and it works wonderfully, but when I upgrade it to install Adobe Reader X the commands I use to run it don't work properly.  I get the Windows Installer help window pop up.  Here's what I'm running for 9.4:

AdobeReaderInstallFile.exe /sAll /rs /l /msi "/qb-! /norestart ALLUSERS=1 EULA_ACCEPT=YES SUPPRESS_APP_LAUNCH=YES"

Does anybody know of the proper usage to get a true silent install for 10.0?  Thanks in advance!


					
				
			
			
				
			
			
			
			
			
			
			
		

I tried AdobeRdr1000.exe /msi EULA_ACCEPT=YES /qn. That did the silent install. Does this work for you?

Yes!    That works perfectly.  Thank you!  Strange how the command is smaller and so simple now

And also AXrocks, yes, I am doing this on an enterprise level or so.  Custom installers to be used on multiple machines.  A "pick and choose" what you need tool pretty much.

Thanks again!

Hi,

Command Line Switches for the Bootstrap  Web Installer for Reader are provided below:

/sAll Silent Mode for product
/sPB Silent Mode with Progress Bar for product
/rs Reboot Suppress
/rps Reboot Prompt Suppress
/ini "PATH" Alternative initialization file
/sl "LANG_ID" Set Language; LANG_ID - Code in decimal digits
/l Enable Error Logging.  Log file Bootstrap.log will be generated in temp directory

/msi[Command line] Parameters for MSIEXEC

AdobeReaderInstallFile.exe /sAll /rs /l /msi "/qb-! /norestart ALLUSERS=1 EULA_ACCEPT=YES SUPPRESS_APP_LAUNCH=YES"

This command line has parameters for both silent install (/sAll) as well as progress bar mode (/qb) which is useless. Also /rs and /norestart work the same way supressing the reboot.

SUPPRESS_APP_LAUNCH=YES can also be removed as the checkbox for suppressing the application launch after install has been removed from the installer.

Moreover the quotes are not being recognised by the MSI Installer causing it to launch help window pop up.

So the command that can be used for silent install and suppressing EULA is:

AdbeRdr_1000_en_US.exe /sAll /msi /norestart ALLUSERS=1 EULA_ACCEPT=YES

Dear Kesselju,

If you haven't resolved this issue yet, may I ask what operating system are you using? Are you able to install Adobe Reader 5.1 on on a different OS, attempt upgrading and replicate the issue?

Regards,

Lewis

Had to set the EULA to "YES" in order for this to work for me, added it in my blog

http://appman.tech/silent-install-adobe-reader-11-msi-and-exe-disable-update/

start /wait msiexec /i "%~dp0AcroRead.msi" EULA_ACCEPT=YES TRANSFORMS="AcroRead.mst" /Update "%~dp0AdbeRdrUpd11010.msp" /qn
