Adobe have now released a completely new version of their Acrobat Reader software and are now calling it Adobe Reader DC. This is to fit in with their new more cloud based systems that they now use and they have added some neat little features and tidied up the user interface, but at the end of the day, it is simply a PDF reader.
So you want to distribute the new version through Group Policy, WDS, SCCM etc? then you will want the MSI installer rather than the nasty, hard to silent install EXE files that Adobe roll out by default. The good news is, we have the links for the MSI installers!
You can download the MSI installers from our Download microsite:
If you want to distribute Adobe Reader DC as a silent install, then you can use the codes as below:
WDS or Group Policy
adobereaderdcinstaller.msi /q /norestart
msiexec /i "adobereaderdcinstaller.msi" /q /norestart
