I am trying to determine the most efficient way to check a machine for an installation of adobe reader and if not found automate the installation of adobe reader.  Another obstacle to get past is the fact that users on our domain do not have install rights and I would like for the application to automate the installation of adobe with the necessary rights.  All of this is intended to be done from c# of course.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Kendal

I realize that you would like to automate the install using c#, but can I offer an alternative method?  If your network is running Active Directory, Adobe Reader can be deployed to specific workstations very easily.

Specific information can also be found in the document, "Adobe Acrobat 7.0 for Microsoft Windows Group Policy Objects and Active Directory" http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/acrobat/GPO_AD_7.pdf.
