Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

In order to deploy 'Adobe Creative Cloud' or 'Adobe Creative Cloud' components and applications you need to download the 'Creative Cloud Packager' 1.7.0.31 or up. Adobe® Creative Cloud™ Packager makes it easy for you to create packages that contain Adobe Creative Cloud products and updates. These packages can then be deployed to the client machines in your organization.

Download Creative Cloud Packager as follows:

• If you are a Creative Cloud for teams customer, download Adobe Creative Cloud Packager from the Team Admin Portal in Adobe Creative Cloud.
• If you are a Creative Cloud for Enterprise customer, download Adobe Creative Cloud Packager from the Adobe Licensing Website (LWS) or Enterprise Dashboard. You also get your enterprise license key from the LWS.

Using Creative Cloud Packager, you create Windows and/or Mac OS packages (MSI or PKG files) and then using ZENworks Configuration Management to deploy them to client machines.

Copy to and start 'Creative Cloud Packager' (as 'Administrator') from a local drive, since it can't be run from a network drive:

Accept the EULA:

Select which product you've purchased (Dutch SLBdiensten customers who've purchased an 'Adobe Fixed Price contract' select 'Creative Cloud desktop apps for education'):

Login with your Adobe ID and click 'Next':

Select 'Create Package' and click 'Next':

In the 'Package Details' screen provide a valid 'Package name' and a path where to save the Package to.
Enterprise customers have to select 'Serial Number License'.
Uncheck the checkboxes for 'Creative Cloud Desktop Application' and 'Applications & Updates via the Apps Panel' and click 'Next':

Because you've selected 'Serial Number License' in the 'Package Details' screen, provide your enterprise license key here and click 'Next':

Your enterprise license key will be validated:

Select your language and the the components and applications you like to include your package. In this example we will choose 'Adobe Acrobat DC' only and click 'Build':

Creative Cloud Packager will download the selected components and applications from the Adobe website:

After all components and applications have been downloaded and the package has been created, this 'Summary' screen will be shown. Click 'Close':

Then this is what's available in the selected path:

In the 'Exceptions' folder you will find the main MSI setup here: ..\Exceptions\APRO15.0nl_NL\Adobe Acrobat\

AcroPro.msi

Select this MSI in Bundle Commander in order to create and configure a transform file using the 'Adobe Customization Wizard'. Since 'Adobe Acrobat Pro DC' is installed as part of 'Creative Cloud', check the 'Creative Cloud Mode' checkbox. This will disable the 'Serial Number' textbox, a serial number license is not needed since the 'Enterprise license' has been included in the 'Package'. Then click 'OK':

And then create a Windows bundle:


In order to deploy 'AcroPro.msi', you need to deploy 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2013' first. Although the 'Exceptions' folder contains a 'vc_runtimeMinimum_x64.msi' which can be used to install this prerequisite, it needs some tweaking to be installed stand alone. We therefore suggest downloading the latest VC++ Runtimes for the x86 and x64 platforms in our 'Setup Store' and use those:

And create a Windows bundle for this setup:

Create a Windows bundle for '..\Adobe Pro DC\Build\Adobe Pro DC.msi' and make sure you select the 'Include all files...' checkbox:

Create a Windows bundle (Launch type) for 'c:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat DC\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe':

In ZCC add three 'Install Bundle'- actions to the Launch bundle for Acrobat.exe. Make sure the order of these actions is like what's shown here:
