Does anyone know how to do a silent install from the setup.exe?  The closest I could get was by running setup.exe /silent, but the progress bar still popped up, although it skipped the first screen where you click next.

It's reasons such as the one in this post why I personally hate ALL Adobe products. Why is this unanswered? I now need to silently deploy this to 1,500 computers, yet do you think I can find the necessary support docs on your horrible site? No! If I had my way Adobe wouldn't get anywhere near anybody's computers until you clean up your act!

On the subject of deploying the Adobe Acrobat Connect Add-in (the setup.exe required for presenters / moderators to be able to upload presentations), how is this typically accomplished?

Company policy here is not to allow our users to run executables, and apparently it doesn't work if installed by an administrator for the users as the installation has to run under the users profile? Is there an MSI package or something that I can deploy this Add-in with?

If you download the add-in installer named setup.exe, and you do a right-click -> properties -> version, you will see in the Comments that it is an Innosetup file.

Going to www.innosetup.com, you can click on "Documentation", then "Other Information", then "Setup Command Line Parameters".

There you will find that the Command Line parameters to do a silent installation are:

/SP-

Disables the This will install... Do you wish to continue? prompt at the beginning of Setup. Of course, this will have no effect if  the DisableStartupPrompt [Setup] section directive  was set to yes.

/SILENT, /VERYSILENT

Instructs Setup to be silent or very silent. When Setup is silent the  wizard and the background window are not displayed but the installation  progress window is. When a setup is very silent this installation  progress window is not displayed. Everything else is normal so for  example error messages during installation are displayed and the startup  prompt is (if you haven't disabled it with DisableStartupPrompt or the  '/SP-' command line option explained above).

Thank you mcucinat!  I'm glad I found your post today after searching how to make the latest 9.4.96.0 Add-in silent install.  Worked like a charm with /SP- /VERYSILENT switches.

This works great to silently install, but how can one make the addin install to the default user profile instead of the user profile for whoever is installing it? I'd like to install the Adobe Connect Add-in for all users.

similar to ortsac's question... if our users environment variable points to a fileserver space rather than "C:\users\ etc", how does one go about making that execute when launching a session as a moderator (need to have that adobeconnectaddin.exe running to get in the front door!).. I can  bypass it to act as a participant ("&launcher=false", but sharing etc requires that i get past that roadblock...
