Launch other applications

Launch Other Applications allows you to specify additional applications to be installed along with the Acrobat product. You can specify both executable files or batch files to run on the destination system(s) after the product installation completes.

The feature modifies the EnterpriseLaunches table and writes to the Setup.ini file.

Chaining installs

To add an application to the installation:

  1. Choose Add Application.

  2. Enter a complete path to the application in Application Path or choose Browse and navigate to the application.


If an executable file or batch file is not available or the location is invalid, the installer will ignore the entry.

  1. Add any needed command line parameters to the application path by double-clicking the Command Line field and entering the parameter.

  2. To specify whether the installation process waits before proceeding with the application, double-click the Wait field, and then select Yes or No.

Changing the install order

The order of the applications in the list determines the order in which the installer invokes the files. The order is customizable:

  1. Select an application from the list.

  2. Choose the Up and Down arrows on the right to rearrange the application within the list.


Each application executes according to its location on the list, so verify there is no conflict among the files in the list.

Removing an install item

To remove an application:

  1. Select the application from the list.

  2. Remove Application.
