    Here are my notes.......

    For reader and acrobat you need to start with the "Adobe Customization Wizard" though be aware that I have found it is version specific. So download ACW for Reader 10 if that's the reader version your working with. Also if you only have the .exe file you need to expand it out so you can work with the .msi "That's what the ACW uses"

    Create the following folder structure:
    C:\AdobePatch\AdobeReaderDownloads
    C:\AdobePatch\AdobeReaderDownloads\11.0.0
    C:\AdobePatch\AcrobatTransform
    C:\AdobePatch\AIP
    Download the required .exe files from Abobe and save them in C:\AdobePatch\AdobeReaderDownloads
    If you already have the package with the .msi skip this step and move to launch application"The ACW":
    1. Open an elevated command prompt and browse to C:\AdobePatch\AdobeReaderDownloads.
    2. Run the following commands:
    AdbeRdr11000_en_US.exe -nos_o"C:\AdobePatch\AdobeReaderDownloads\11.0.0" -nos_ne
    msiexec /a 11.0.0\AcroRead.msi /qb TARGETDIR=C:\AdobePatch\AIP
    msiexec /a C:\AdobePatch\AIP\AcroRead.msi /qb /p AdbeRdrUpd11003.msp TARGETDIR=C:\AdobePatch\AIP
    Copy Setup.ini from C:\AdobePatch\AdobeReaderDownloads\11.0.0 to C:\AdobePatch\AIP
    Download Adobe Customization Wizard.
    2. Install the application and launch it when done.
    3. Click on File -> Copy Package.
    Enter the location of your .msi file, name it and enter where you want it stored.
    Make your changes the save the package.
    Now create an SCCM Application with that .msi
    The CMD line will be msiexec /i AcroRead.msi /qn TRANSFORMS=AcroRead.mst
