Greetings.
I'm trying in vain to stop adobe showing the eula and welcome screen every time a network user runs the program. I've used profile manager to set manual plist changes (com.adobe.Reader.plist)  under the DC branch however nothing I seem to do works. I've even tried running the program,setting it up, copying the created plist, uploading it into profile manager and using those settings, still no joy. Please can anyone help as to where I am going wrong.

Thanks

MacOS Server Profile Manager??  You are attempting to use Apple's MDM (Mobile Device Management) service to deploy Adobe Reader DC?  As far as I am aware, this untested for deployment of Adobe Reader DC on MacOS.

Hi Steve,

Sorry, I should have been clearer. I've installed adobe reader dc already, that works fine. The problems I'm having are pushing out the settings (such as accepting the eula, hiding the welcom screen etc) which I had tried to do using the custom settings in macos server profile manager. I tried importing the com.adobe.reader.plist into profile manager and using the settings from that, didnt work. I also tried manually inputting them myself, didnt work.

James,

Where are you placing the PLIST file?   There are a couple of PLIST locations that Acrobat/Reader use to gather preferences.

User PLIST Location

/Users/[USERNAME]//Library/Preferences/com.adobe.Reader.plist

Machine PLIST Location

/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.Reader.plist
