MSI file for Adobe Reader, Flash Player and Shockwave Player

I’ve often needed to obtain the MSI or a single EXE file for an enterprise deployment of Adobe Reader, Flash Player or Shockwave Player. Adobe now provide a single web page where you can request a license to download these files:

http://www.adobe.com/products/players/fpsh_distribution1.html

Don’t worry – there is no cost to it. The form only took me a few minutes to fill out and then a couple of minutes later I received an email with links to download the MSIs and EXEs.

A worthy side note is the installation parameters for a silent install – for the MSIs obviously you can use something like ‘msiexec /i filename.msi /qb-!’, but Reader only comes as an executable – use ‘AdbeRdr930_en_US.exe /sAll’ for a silent install.
