Attempting to install the application via MSI was quitting immediately when ran silently. I removed the silent flag to see that the installer was complaining about not detecting VC++ 2013 x64 on my machine.
I checked and I have the latest version installed already (12.0.40660). I've attempted to uninstall/reinstall the VC++ 2013 x64 package as well as run the repair portion, but Acrobat still cannot detect it.
You have a choice when using the MSI command line...
|Installation||DC and later||IGNOREVCRT64||Since Acrobat looks for Visual C++ x64 2013 Runtime (VC) by default, set IGNOREVCRT64 to 1 if it is not present AND not needed. IGNOREVCRT64 need only be used when all of the following are true:|
|Installation||11.x only||IGNOREVC10RT||IGNOREVC10RT need only be used when all of the following are true:|
Thanks for the reply Steve.
I did read that before I posted and I was able to install with that parameter. The question remains why can't it detect the VC++ 2013 even though it is installed?
My fear is that deploying this to my users, I'll suddenly get tickets asking why they can't use it with Office.
That being said, are the optional features ONLY for 64-bit versions of Office? We have 32-bit Office 365 installed and I did notice that the add-on fir AdobePDF Creation was Inactive "due to a runtime error". Does this mean the 32-bit version is also affeced by this?
I too am finding this an issue with msiexec installs. i'd like to use the transforms option set and bypass the VC++ message. I have included IGNOREVCRT64=1 as we are wanting to deploy Adobe DC Std/Pro but this option isn't working in our testing. It still prompts about VC++.
Would also like to know what damage we cause for those 64bit office installs by doing this.
The documentation says "For MSI installs, use Require64BitVC10RT in the Setup.ini file under the Startup section." it looks like you are trying to use "IGNOREVCRT64"
I have updated this and I now have Require64bitVC10RT=0 which should say don't install, right?
even with that change, still receiving pop-up that it needs to be installed.
Simpy calling the msi --msiexec /i acrostd.msi
Running AcroPro.msi IGNOREVC10RT=1 works
I tried editing the setup.ini to try the following options, none work:

I have figured out my issue. I used msiexec /i acrostd.msi IGNOREVCRT64=1 transforms="
acrostd.mst" and this resolved my problem.
Thx Michael, I will try your solution.
I'm having the same issue.
This started with Windows 10 (1709) - I have no issues with the same package for Windows 10 (1703).
There are three versions of the 2013 redist.
21005 and 30501 can co-exist.
30501 and 40660 can both be listed in add remove programs but when you look at the data only 40660 is really installed.
The adobe installer is specifically looking for the older version of the same redist which can not be on the machine if you are fully patched.
