This document describes how to install a standalone instance of Adobe Acrobat X when you have a Creative Suite 6 license but not a standalone Adobe Acrobat X license.
Download AAMEE 3.1 from one of the following locations:
Install AAMEE 3.1.
Agree to the EULA.
At this point of the deployment process, you can use the Adobe Customization Wizard X to create a customized Acrobat deployment package. For example, you could disable Acrobat updates in the Acrobat package because the AAMEE 3.1 customized updater settings have no effect on Acrobat updates. The Wizard is included as an MSI installer file in AAMEE 3.1 folder on your system at a location like:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\PDApp\Enterprise\utilities \AcrobatCustomizationWizard\10.0\CustWiz1000_en_US.msi.
Also note, that on Mac OS X, the Mac Acrobat package can be packaged as part of the main AAMEE 3.1 deployment package. Preference PLIST files and FeatureLockDown files need to be edited post install. For more information, see chapter 4 of CS6 Deployment Guide at:
After you’ve customized the installer as needed, install the AAMEE 3.1 Acrobat X Pro CS6 standalone package as follows:
C:\Desktop\AcrobatX CS6 Standalone\Exceptions\AcrobatProfessional0.0-EFG\AcroPro.msi.
msiexec.exe /i AcroPro.msi INSTALLDIR="[INSTALLDIR]\Acrobat 10.0" EULA_ACCEPT=NO REGISTRATION_SUPPRESS=YES SUITEMODE=1 TRANSFORMS=[installLanguage].mst INSTALLLEVEL=101 AS_DISABLE_LEGACY_COLOR=1 IGNOREAAM=1 /qn
msiexec.exe /i AcroPro.msi INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 10.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe" EULA_ACCEPT=NO REGISTRATION_SUPPRESS=YES SUITEMODE=1 TRANSFORMS=en_US.mst INSTALLLEVEL=101 AS_DISABLE_LEGACY_COLOR=1 IGNOREAAM=1 /qn
msiexec.exe /p PATCH=AcrobatUpd1011.msp /qn
You can apply additional Acrobat patches (e.g. version 10.1.7 updater patch) if necessary at this point of the installation process using the same command line syntax as above.
msiexec.exe /i "Acrobat X CS6 Standalone Package.msi" /quiet
If you have spaces in the file name, place quotes around the MSI file name as the example above.
Test your build by watching the processes that use the msiexec.exe and msiexec.exe *32 until they complete in the task manager. If you were deploying the application, you would be using other tools to monitor the progress of the installation.
Verify the applications have been installed properly by launching and testing the following:
- Adobe Acrobat X Pro.
- Launch Adobe Acrobat X Distiller.
- Launch Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES.
