    Steps to sequence the application:

    • Perform the following on a sequencing station but do not open the sequencer at this point.
    •  Use the standalone installer using the link in the additional notes section and launch AdbeRdr930_en_US.exe but remain on the first dialogue page.
    •  Copy the temporary installation media from C:\Users\administrator\AppData\Local\Adobe\Reader 9.3\Setup Files to another location for customization.
    •  Install the Adobe Customization Wizard from the second link in the additional notes section of the recipe.
    •  Open the AcroRead.msi with the Adobe Customization Wizard.
    •  At a minimum you will probably want to select “Online and Features” and select the “Disable all updates” checkbox so that Adobe Reader does not attempt updating after deployment. Many organizations may also want to select “Disable Product Improvement Program”.
    •  Make any other necessary changes and save the package.
    •  Go to a clean sequencing machine.
    •  Launch the Setup.exe file from the Adobe Reader files you extracted and install Adobe Reader.
    •  Launch Adobe Reader directly using the following command line C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe.
    •  Accept the license agreement.
    •  Close Adobe Reader and stop monitoring.
    •  Make any further required edits to the sequence then save and test.
