Static Download Link

Hey Guys,

 

When I build computers for users we normally install some default software to make it easier for them.

For example, I install Edge/Chrome/Adobe Reader.

 

I have been able to find the static download links for Edge and Chrome.

So I have been able to script the install of these applications.

 

I would also like to include Adobe Reader (free version) into my script.

At the moment I have to go to this website:
https://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/enterprise/

And download the MSI from there.

Do you have a static link to download the latest version of this installer?

 

 

I can find the .EXE version of Adobe Reader (https://admdownload.adobe.com/bin/live/readerdc_en_xa_crd_install.exe)

 

The only issue is though that version doesn't allow silent install with command-line arguments.

Thats why I need the .MSI version.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

So? It's still "static"... Or do you mean a link that will take you to the latest version, no matter what it is? If so, then no, it doesn't exist.

Maybe on the FTP site, but it's so slow at the moment that I can't verify it for sure...

Try it yourself: ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/

Yeah I was looking for the second option.

If you're writing a script might as well get the contents of the Reader folder on the FTP server and then use the latest sub-folder from it... I would think that would be easier.

Please also be sure you have a redistribution agreement for Reader. It is free, but the standard license does not allow you to deploy it for others.

 

Documentation on getting the MSI from the EXE, and the command line arguments and other setup options, are in the Acrobat Enterprise Deployment Toolkit.
