I'm test a DC msi install with a transform and it will not install on my vm.  If I use: setup.exe /sALL it will install.  It will work with msiexec on my local machine! This is whats puzzling...

thanks

The setup.exe route installs C++ redistributables required by Acrobat, could this explain the difference?

Possibly, though I did build the Transform with the "launch other applications' pointing to the VCRT exe from another package. 

Do you know if the msi method is now deprecated and the setup.exe bootstrapper method is preferred?  Just curious, the setup.exe method works, just wanted to know why the previous way no longer works.

thanks

The setup.exe method is preferred, and this can still be run from command line or used is SCCM etc.

The msi method does work but if the VC++ redistributables are not installed already it will not install them, and these are used for pdfmakers. Of course many systems have them already.

A test for this would be if your msi install on your VM works with a command line that omits these:

     msiexec /i <path\AcroStan.msi> /qb IGNOREVC10RT=1
