I'm trying to extract the .msi file from the current version of reader, I have followed the instructions on how to extract .msi file from the Adobe Reader DC .exe version. and Administration Basics — Enterprise Administration Guide and how to extract .msi file from the Adobe Reader DC .exe version. andHow to download Reader DC 2017.009.20044 MSI?

All of these say the same thing but when I run the script it just installs reader and I don't get an .msi

Does anyone have the correct detail for extraction

I had tried from here Adobe - Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Distribution  and as it didn't work I tried from here Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Install for all versions that was the version I last tried when I posted

I have now gone back to Adobe - Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Distribution and tried again and have got it working with c:\AcroRdrDC1901020069_en_US.exe -sfx_o"C:\Temp\Adobe\1" -sfx_ne

Chris,

If you download valid Adobe Reader installer executable, for example AcroRdrDC1500720033_en_US.exe from

ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/AcrobatDC/1500720033/

you should be able to extract using this sample command line

C:\AcroRdrDC1500720033_en_US.exe -sfx_o"C:\ExtractToFolder" -sfx_ne  -sfx_nu

where

-sfx_ne means - do not execute installation

-sfx_ne means - do not show UI

Also, executable creates AdobeSFX.log file in the user Temp folder.

Send it to me if you still have issues.
