Upgrading from Acrobat Reader 6 to Acrobat Reader 7 via Active Directory

Discussion in 'Active Directory' started by Sander Peters, Apr 21, 2006.

  1. Hi

    I would like to deploy Acrobat Reader version 7.05 to all of the computers
    in our network.
    All workstations have version 6, so it is a upgrade.

    I want to do this via Active directory (Windows Server 2003) with a software
    policy that will install Acrobad Reader 7.05 when the users logs on.

    This works but the old version (Acrobat Reader v6) still remains on the
    computer. This programm is not automaticly replaced by Acrobat Reader 7.05.
    But when I install Acrobat Reader 7.05 manually it does replace Acrobat
    Reader version 6.

    Does anybody knows about this?
    Is it possible to Install Acrobat Reader 7.05 via Active Directory and
    immediatly replace version 6?

    Thanks in advance.

    i think, you should use software assign (not publish) by GPO software
    deployment
