Hello all and Happy new Year,
We have Adobe Reader DC installed across 4000+ machines in our estate, we would like to be able to turn on automatic updates for the product but during testing have found that it requires admin rights to do the install which none of our users have - are admin rights required?
Just need some clarification from Adobe staff on this.
Admin credentials are not required for automatic updates. You might see UAC with credentials request in manual check for updates workflow.
If you experience issues please collect and send me updater log file in the private message as detailed here-
Thanks for the response @LeoAdobeX. Originally I created the Adobe Reader DC package with updates turned off using the customization wizard, in order to enable automatic updates again for clients I removed the following registry value:
I then ran the scheduled task manually and got the notification in the system tray, when I clicked the notification in the system tray it prompted UAC and asked for credentials?
Is this the behaviour I should expect or is there some other registry values I need to remove?
Thanks Leo - I have PM'd you the log file.

You can post your questions here or send me private message.
And, as I mentioned previously-
Hello Leo, thanks for you help. Updates will install automatically and silently even if no one is logged in. However, a manual update check (Help -> Check for updates) requires admin rights. Is this correct?
