"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As part of a WIM file, yes. If you are trying to do post-OS installation, you really should be looking into SCCM.

yeah Ill never pay that for SCCM, we are almost finished with the purchasing process for Dell's KACE, which i know will do it, but i have like 15 acrobat installs to roll out and was hoping there was a simple way to do it
You can install it before performing a SYSPREP. Another option would be some type of startup script that would automate the install.
