Adobe Acrobat X Automatically Install Updates

Posted on 2012-09-06
Last Modified: 2012-09-07

I'm looking for where all of the preferences/settings are stored for Adobe Reader/Acrobat X so I can set all of our installations to "Automatically install updates".

Adobe Updater
I've used RegShot, but I couldn't find any registry keys that changed when selecting either of the three bullets, so I'm thinking there must be a settings file somewhere?

Any help would be beneficial.

Thank you!

    The info below may be useful for you.

    According to Jbradley1976, it says:-

    For 10.1 and later, Acrobat is configured via iCheck and Reader is configured via

    2. Set the value of iCheck (Both product prior t 10.1 and only Acrobat post 10.1) or
    iCheckReader (Reader 10.1 and later only) as needed:
     0: Manual. Do not download or install updates automatically.
     1: Not used.
     2: Semi automatic. Automatically download updates, but let me choose when to install them.
     3: Automatic. Automatically install updates.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe ARM\1.0\ARM] "iCheck"=dword:00000000
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Adobe ARM\1.0\ARM] "iCheckReader"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Adobe\Adobe ARM\1.0\ARM] "iCheck"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Adobe\Adobe ARM\1.0\ARM] "iCheckReader"=dword:00000000
