I have the Adobe Writer with a license key. This is already an MSI package.  

Two questions:

1) How do i incorporate the License file in the package

2) I'm trying to use the Adobe Writer MSI to distribute via GPO in active directory but I need to make modifications such as remove desktop icon, incoroprate the license.  But how can i use the existing MSI package to do this? I know there are transforms for the Adobe Reader 6.0..

Help anyone..

Hi

You can use msiexec
see http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/msiexec.mspx for more information
Or see http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;x223393&sd=tech to push the MSI with the CD-KEY

Type msiexec in the run command for all the options.
I hope this helps.

edit the abcpy.ini file to include serial, username, install directory etc

you could also install it on another machine first, then search the registry for the first 4 digits of the serial number and find where the key is installed. then export the key and use it as part of your silent install
acroPRo.msi /QR (run first)
acroPRo.reg (run second)
