Does anyone know how to manually add the Adobe PDF printer via CMD?

I tried the following cmd but it doesn't work.

 

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /if /b "Adobe PDF" /f
%programfiles(x86)%\Adobe\Acrobat 2017\Acrobat\Xtras\AdobePDF\AdobePDF.inf /r "Documents\*.pdf" /m "Adobe PDF"

I was able to remotely add the Adobe PDF printer with Powershell.

 

Add-Printer -Name "Adobe PDF" -DriverName "Adobe PDF Converter" -PortName "Documents\*.pdf"

When you have a Acrobat installation then the Adobe PDF printer is already installed.

I understand that but what if I need to reinstall the Adobe PDF printer? I know how to install it manually through the gui but prefer cmd for remote deployment.

You probably need to remotely use MSIexec to reinstall or repair Acrobat.
