I'm setting up Adobe Reader on 2003 server distribution point. the instructions are to do an admin install using AcroPro.msi. It is on the install CD, but we have downloaded the reader and have no cd or AcroPro.msi.
Anyone know of a source for this msi file, other than an install cd?

Try this for starters:


Cannot find acropro.msi
When you update your software, it will want an MSI file, what do you do when it can't find it?
In Adobe Acrobat - The msi file should have downloaded with the program, it will be in the original download Software Center folder. If you deleted that folder or cannot find it, you can go to the Software Center and download Acrobat again, at the first install screen, cancel the install. You would have downloaded the pro.msi file. The full file path is: C:\Software Center\Installers\Acrobat6_Installer

Turns out that the published instructions for Reader are a version behind and the actual name of the msi (for version 7.0.7) is   Adobe_Reader_7.0.msi .  
Thanks for getting me started in the right direction.
