I have at least 50 machines that will need to have Acrobat DC instead of Reader XI, since Reader XI support is ending soon.  What is the easiest way to do this?  Are they different products meaning that Reader XI needs to be uninstalled and Acrobat DC installed?  I installed Reader XI on my machine and tried to check for updates, hoping it would push Acrobat DC but did not.  What is the easiest way to push them out in mass?  Can I do this with WSUS or 3rd party updates in SolarWinds Patch Manager?

Thanks for your time.

Yes they are different... Reader is free, Acrobat is a paid product
