AppDeploy has a wealth of information, especially if you're looking for silent 
install switches and the like.

Justin-
This covers Adobe 6.x but I suspect the newest ones have not changed:

Can you even get a MSI file for Adobe reader to push out via GPO?  I have 
looked in the past and come up short.

There are ways to check, but the quickest and easiest thing to do is check for 
the existence of the following registry key:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppPaths\Acrobat.exe

If it is there then the full Adobe Acrobat is most likely installed. Otherwise 
you are probably safe to go ahead and install the latest Adobe Reader.

Hope that helps. ☺

I would like to install Adobe Reader on all of our Domains PC's unless any 
version is already installed.  
I have some users that have the full version and do not want to effect that.  
Does anybody have a GPO Script or startup script to do this?
