Adobe Reader 8 Install Question

By kwells ·
I'm rolling out Adobe Reader 8 from a login script on a server. My question is -- does Adobe Reader 8 installation automatically uninstall all pervious versions of Adobe Reader? This is what I am finding the happen... not sure if it is what is supposed to happen though.

Looks like it

From a completely unscientific ng search it seems that it does although there are a few reported failed installs. I'm unsure if this process is silent by default. Google is your friend.

I did find a tutorial on scripting a silent install of Acrobat (if you haven't seen this already)

I haven't tested any of this (I use Foxit). You may find something useful in it though.

Start with something like and work from there.

There's some good info on the ngs about getting the msi & cab files from the exe also but I'm guessing you've already got that :)

To quietly uninstall Adobe Reader 7 before installing Adobe Reader 8.1 do :
Start /wait MsiExec.exe /q /x{AC76BA86-7AD7-1033-7B44-A70000000000}
