We have close to 900 installs of Acrobat X Pro out in our Windows 7 SP1 environment and there was a request to now enable the Office Add-In for Acrobat X Pro.

Manually adding the Office Add-In through the Add/Remove Programs works just fine, but trying to add it through a scripted command line has been painful.

This command line gets close, but it it does not function properly - it doesn't create a PDF through the Office Add-In (toolbar).

msiexec /i {AC76BA86-1033-F400-7760-000000000005} ADDLOCAL=PDFMaker,PDFMakerForOffice,PDFMakerForWord2K /qn /norestart /log "C:\Windows\Temp\AcrobatX_PDFMakerForOffice.log"

Eventually, this command line worked:

msiexec /i {AC76BA86-1033-F400-7760-000000000005} ADDLOCAL=ALL REMOVE=PDFMakerForOutlook,PDFMakerForVisio,PDFMakerForProject,PDFMakerForAutoCAD,PDFMakerForIE,PDFMakerForPublisher,PDFMakerForAccess,PDFMakerForLotusNotes /qn /norestart /log "C:\Windows\Temp\AcrobatX_PDFMakerForOffice.log"

Now, the main issue is that the Add-In will eventually switch over from English to French for no apparent reason.  We do have a workaround, but it's a manual workaround which is not desirable to do on 900 computers.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
