I can boot a computer lab all at once and would like to check Acrobat Reader status without starting the application.  Right now I have to open Acrobat Reader 9 and click "check for updates".

are you running the batch from the same location as the updater file?

This would be the command:
 
"%CommonProgramFiles%\Adobe\Updater6\Adobe_Updater.exe" -AU_LAUNCH_MODE=1 -AU_DISPLAY_LANG=en_US -AU_LAUNCH_APPID=reader9rdr-en_US
