How to centrally manage Adobe Reader updates

Posted on 2006-03-22

I run a Windows Server 2003 network and have a user base of 40 XP workstations that all run Adobe Reader independantly.  I want to find a way to manage the regular updates that are pushed out from Adobe, but don't know how.

I want to stop all the popups and force updates to install across teh board.

Is this possible?  If so, how?

    To my knowledge, forcing an update of Acrobat isn't possible.

    However, if you host acrobat on your server and have your users run the executable from the server, this may work.  I haven't tried this, but some programs can work this way and some can't.  It may be worth a shot, though.

    That is my feeling as well, but I hate to close the issue without checking it out.  I am searching Adobe now, but am coming up blank.
