  • Execute Acrobat Reader setup in silent mode and wait till finish

    I am trying to execute the acrobat reader setup in silent mode and make my setup factory project wait until acrobat reader has finished. However it looks like acrobat's setup.exe launches _ISDel.exe and therefore my setup resumes before the acrobat setup has truely finished. Anyone know of a way to accomplish this?

    Many installers as well as Setup Factory extract certain contents temporarily and then launch a secondary executable. Setup Factory installs can be passed a /W command line argument to force the install to wait until the entire process is finished. You may want to search the Acrobat documentation to see if they have a similar argument that can be passed. I'm not aware of whether or not they have one.

      I install the Acrobat Reader, however not in silent mode, by placing my installer on the RunOnce list using the Run File on Reboot (after the Acrobat reboot) and setting a flag in the registry saying I've installed Acrobat. The next time through the code I skip that part of the install based on the flag. It may be kludgy but it works.
