Hi

only include the files int the Reader9 folder and link to the setup.exe enclosed.

There is no need to include all the Air package if you don't need it or you don't want the license.

So are you saying that the setup.exe outside of the reader 9 folder is NOT needed

To my knowledge this is only the front end where you can select whether you want to install air too. If you only need the barebone Reader installation then the setup in the R9 folder should suffice.

Adobe include AIR in the reader download nowadays, it does not do harm to include it but then you may as well include the wrapped installer:

You should however test your final master to make sure it all installs OK.
