SCCM Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Enterprise Deployment.

1. First you need to download the Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Enterprise:

  • Select an Operating system

2. After you have downloaded the installer you can extract the .exe files (using elevated PowerShell) so you can access the .MSI file;

The parameters are:

-sfx_ne : Do not execute any file after installation (overrides the -e switch) This switch should be used if user only wants to extract the installer contents and not run the installer.
-sfx_o : Specifies the name of folder where the expanded package is placed. The folder name should be enclosed in quotation marks. It is best if you do not use an existing folder.
-sfx_nu : Silently extracts the installation files from the EXE.

.\AcroRdrDC1901020098_en_US.exe -sfx_o"C:\temp\AcroRdrDC19\Deployment" -sfx_ne

NOTE: This doesn’t work with web installer.
