Not feeling very smart - Newbie

Recommended Posts

Been searching the forum for a basic Adobe Reader install script and everything is advanced and confusing to me. :blink:

So far I have successfully created a Firefox 3.6 script, but for Reader 9.3.3 I can't get it to recognize my VERY FIRST "!n". Maybe because it pops up a new window (instead of reusing the one it begins with)?

If someone might please offer me some guidance, I'd be real grateful. Here's what I have (too simple apparently):

;Run("AdbeRdr933_en_US.exe")

WinWaitActive("Adobe Reader 9.3.3 - Setup")

Send("{!n}")

Send("{ENTER}")

WinWaitActive("Adobe Reader 9.3.3 - Setup", "Setup Type")

Send("{ENTER}")

WinWaitActive("Adobe Reader 9.3.3 - Setup", "&Finish")

Send("{ENTER}")

Can you post screenshots of the installer?

Try using the Adobe Acrobat Reader MSI installer instead of the .exe you have downloaded (you can either download the .msi file, or extract it from your existing .exe)

Have a look here: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/404/kb404146.html

Then use the WinActivate and Send that you have been trying to step through each screen, or use

ShellExecuteWait("AdbeRdr93.msi", "/passive /norestart")

to install showing only the progress bar or

ShellExecuteWait("AdbeRdr933.msi", /qn /norestart")

to do it completely silently.
