For more information about the commande line option, type: AdbeRdr90_en_US.exe /? You'll get the following command:

/sAll Silent Mode for product
/sPB Silent Mode with Progress Bar for product
/rs Reboot Suppress
/rps Reboot Prompt Suppress
/ini "PATH" Alternative initialization file
/sl "LANG_ID" Set Language; LANG_ID - Code in decimal digits
/l Enable Error Logging
/msi[Command line] Parameters for MSIEXEC


When you launch the .exe file it will extract the MSI in this location

Application Data\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Setup Files\READER9

When I run the AdbeRdr90_en_US.exe /? command I do not get the list of options but rather it starts to run the install GUI. Why? Are there different versions of the AdbeRdr90_en_US.exe file?

Thanks for any help you can give me

Some folks over at the Adobe forum note that you can get the Reader 9 installer sans Adobe.com and Adobe Air HERE. Download the AdbeRdr90_en_US_Std.exe installer. Here's my AutoIt script to install unattendedly, arrange icons, get rid of the EULA nag, and remove "speed launcher" from Run:
RunWait ( @ScriptDir & '\AdbeRdr90_en_US_Std.exe /sPB /rs')
FileDelete( @ProgramsCommonDir & "\Adobe Reader*.lnk")
FileDelete( @DesktopCommonDir & "\Adobe Reader*.lnk")
FileCreateShortcut(@ProgramFilesDir & "\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe", @ProgramsCommonDir & "\Accessories\Adobe Reader 9.lnk")
RegWrite('HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\AdobeViewer', 'TrustedMode', 'REG_DWORD', '00000000')
RegWrite('HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\AdobeViewer', 'EULA', 'REG_DWORD', '00000001')
RegWrite('HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\AdobeViewer', 'Launched', 'REG_DWORD', '00000001')
RegWrite('HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\AdobeViewer', 'EULA', 'REG_DWORD', '00000001')
RegWrite('HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\AdobeViewer', 'Launched', 'REG_DWORD', '00000001')
RegDelete('HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run', 'Adobe Reader Speed Launcher')
Edited for typos.

That is the location I got the install file from, but I am still unable to run it with the /? switch.
I am using the AdbeRdr90_en_US.exe file, should I be using one of the others?

Honestly, I think this is the best way to deploy Acrobat Reader 9 silently, and without unnecessary components.

Nice find, Cluberti, I might add that reg tweak to disable the updater.

@akoop: you need to run the installer with the /? switch and LET IT RUN. The program will not install. Running C:\Users\MeMeMe\Desktop\AdbeRdr90_en_US_Std.exe /?, for example, will run "Adobe Reader 9 - Setup" but end with a simple Window listing all of the setup switches available, as stated by hannubys.

I will give it a try. I didn't realize that the GUI would open and run without actually installing the app.

Thanks for the info.

No problem.

In my opinion, yes, look for AdbeRdr90_en_US_Std.exe as it does not include Adobe.com and Air.

I used Cluberti's version, and it worked perfectly.

You can use the Adobe Customization Wizard 9, execulte the installer adobe reader goes to the folder "C: \ Program Files \ Adobe \ Acrobat 9.0 \ Setup Files \ (AC76BA86-7AD7-1046-7B44-A92000000001)". copy all the files open ACW9 and make the changes that you want, use the addon maker to create the ADDom, not need any command. sorry for English
