Howto: Deploy Adobe Reader 8 with Zenworks

I wrote a small Zenworks NAL app that pushes out Adobe Reader 8 to network users. I used the Adobe customization wizard 8 to create the Microsoft MST Transform files that modify the Adobe Reader MSI file. Then I deployed the MSI in Zenworks in conjunction with the modified MST. Check out msiwisdom for more details.

If you don’t use Zenworks, check out unattended deployment suggestions from Joe, Aaron, and appdeploy.com.

Aaron has released customized transform files for Adobe Reader 8.1.  I for one appreciate all the hard work he did, this sure makes my deployment easier.
