I'm looking to roll-out Acrobat reader X using AD group policy. I've got the .msi and a .mst tranform file created using Adobe's customisation wizard. However the installation 'package' also include a .cab file How do I roll this out using AD GP? If I tell it to use the .msi and .mst it complains that the.cab file is missing

As long as the cab file is in the same folder as the msi and mst when it is run, then the installer should 'find' it automatically.  This is because it looks for the cab file automatically in the source directory.

Its slightly more complaicated than my question let on, in that I am using Desktop Authority to push out the application. This imports msi (and mst) files and places them in its own install folder on the PC. I've set up a process to copy the cab file to this location prior to installtion.
This has worked OK, however I will have an issue later because all Acrobat cab files seem to be called data1.cab, and I want to roll out Acrobat Pro next!
