Command to extract the Adobe Reader’s .MSI file

Here is the argument I came across to extract the .msi from an Adobe install .EXE file. Once extracted you can use the Customization Wizard to set desired options, such as disabling auto-updates.

AdbeRdrXXXX.exe -nos_o”C:\SomeFolder” -nos_ne

Here is where you can grab the Customization Wizard:

ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/

FYI. an .MSP update file will also extract, that must also be installed separately using a MSIEXEC.exe /P command, see example .bat below:
