We've installed Adobe Acrobat X Pro for our VMware Horizon View 5.3 desktops.  The Acrobat licensing (entering of the serial number) was done on the VM template before creating the View dekstops.  If multiple users open Acrobat at the same time, they receive the error message "Activation limit reached for Acrobat X Pro".  Is there a way to license Adobe Acrobat in View?  We are currently using a retail version of Acrobat - would a volume license version work?

View desktops are Windows 7 64-bit.  We are not using ThinApps.

it would make sense to use volume licensing for something like this but you're better off contacting adobe or an adobe reseller for licensing options that fit your environment.  retail editions are not designed (or licensed) for this type of use

We were able to get this to work using the Adobe Customization Wizard from the Adobe website.  With it, we created an Acrobat installer that suppresses the EULA and registration prompts.  Tested it last night and it seems to work.  Thanks for the help.
