Adobe Reader DC Upgrade Script

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Has anyone created a script that works with Automate. I would like to push Adobe Reader DC to automatically upgrade silently. It should be able to go to Adobe FTP site, and download the latest version.

Thanks,

Adobe's answer to this question is to use the Acrobat Customization Wizard DC:

Basically, you use this tool to customize the standard installer. Among the options is the ability to enable/disable automatic updates for the product, where leaving them enabled would mean the software automatically updates when a new version is available. If you have a third party patching license, then you could use Automate patching to keep Reader up to date.

I did that, however users are getting prompted to run this application. UAC.

Maybe you could use a scheduled script to execute the automatic updater as administrator? It's '%Program Files (x86)%\Common Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0\AdobeARM.exe'.
