Need help to deploy Adobe Reader 9.3.3 to Client Workstation

Hi there,

I have the following WSUS Architecture:
WSUS-Main -> Contains all the CAB files (works together with WSUS-SQL).
WSUS-SQL -> The database needed by WSUS-Main.
WSUS-Servant -> Gets patches from WSUS-Main/SQL so that it can deploy patches to Client Workstation
Client Workstation -> Gets patches from WSUS-Servant because of security reasons.

I am trying to install an Adobe Reader 9.3.3 installer, AdbeRdr 933_en_US.exe, from the WSUS-Servant (which imports the installer from WSUS-Main which has WPP installed already) to a Client Workstation which does not have any Adobe Reader installed. However, I realised that when I run a detectnow after successfully reporting back to the WPP Console, the Client Workstation did not detect anything for me to install. Is there something that I am missing or WPP does not support the deployment of older installers?

WPP don't care about version of installers you try to deploy.
Do you have set the certificate into the Wsus Downstream server ?
Does client workstations report the update as "Not Installed" ?
Do you see anything useful in the C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log of the client Workstation ?

Hi there,

Thanks for your help. I realise that there was an 0x800b0109 error in the C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log on the client workstation. Then I added the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AcceptTrustedPublisherCerts = 1 key into the registry and it works fine.

Hi there,

I would like to know the command to silent install Adobe Reader 9.3.3, AdbeRdr 933_en_US.exe, and to a specific path (different drive), inside the Command Line field of the Update Creation Wizard. Thanks!
