Hello all,

I need to deploy the latest Adobe Reader 10X patch (AdbeRdrUpd1001_Tier1.msp) using Altiris Deployment Console 6.9 on Windows 7 machines. I have created a script to install it seen below:

\\SERVERNAME\Shared_Apps$\AdobeReader10\AdbeRdrUpd1001_Tier1.msp /qn

After I run the job on a destination machine, the Altiris console says 'Executing Script...' and never leaves that status. The elapsed time just keeps on growing and growing. What is happening is that the destination machine is getting the following window:

Message
How do I get around this problem? I would rather not have to walk around to a few hundred computers to apply this patch.

Thanks in advance for your help!
