    Hi to everyone.


    I slipstreamed all Adobe acrobat 9 Pro extended updates up to 9.3.3. it is showing ' pro extended version' everywhere except when i click on the - help menu -> about acrobat 9 pro extended, and the pop up window shows - Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard.


    I slipstreamed for about 3 times thinking there was an error somewhere. I installed adobe acrobat 3 times and (only) the help menu still shows "Standard" edition.

    I used this command:


    eg: msiexec.exe /a Acro3d.msi /p C:\AIP\AcrobatUpd933_all_incr.msp


    Acrobat just works fine, but it's wired to show Standard edition when it is Pro extended.


    Does it have to do with slipstreaming? If not can anyone help me with this issue Please?


    Thank you

    I wouldnt know but i was wondering if you can tell me how you slipstreamed them into the installation. I have the official DVD and have all the updates in a folder seperately.

    I forgot to say you should slipstream only the "Quarterly" updates, you don't need the others. If you install for e.g the 9.1.1 after 9.1.0 the 9.1.2 won't install.

    This is the right order of updates to slipstream:

    1) AcroProExUpd910_all_incr.msp

    2) AcrobatUpd912_all_incr.msp

    3) AcrobatUpd920_all_incr.msp

    4) AcrobatUpd930_all_incr.msp

    5) AcrobatUpd932_all_incr.msp

    6) AcrobatUpd933_all_incr.msp

    I found the file responssible for showing the version in -> Help -> about menu:

    it's called - splash.dll

    i copied it from another Acrobat 9 intallation and paste it in my slipstreamed acrobat folder (overwrite it). Reinstalled, and now it's showing " Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended"
    HAPPY

    Thank you for your "Thanks" It's nice to hear that.

    It was not easy to figure out which .dll file was in charge of that. I'm glad I found it and happy to share it with you.

    I noticed after extracting the ISO I have that it contains all the "quarterly" updates (minus the 9.3.3 one) in the setup directory.

    And the setup.ini is as follows.
    Code:
    [Startup]
    RequireOS=Windows XP
    RequireMSI=3.0
    RequireIE=6.0.2600.0
    
    [Product]
    PATCH=AcroProExUpd910_all_incr.msp;AcrobatUpd911_all_incr.msp;AcrobatUpd912_all_incr.msp;AcrobatUpd913_all_incr.msp;AcrobatUpd920_all_incr.msp;AcrobatUpd930_all_incr.msp;AcrobatUpd931_all_incr.msp;AcrobatUpd932_all_incr.msp
    msi=Acro3D.msi
    Languages=1033;1031;1036
    1033=English (United States)
    1031=German (Germany)
    1036=French (France)
    
    [Windows XP]
    PlatformID=2
    MajorVersion=5
    MinorVersion=1
    ServicePackMajor=2
    
    [MSI Updater]
    Path=WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe
    I'm guessing it's the original v9 release, and it is simply patching it to the latest version on the fly at the point of installation.

    @ CIPHER

    Yes that release is patching during intallation. Here we are talking of slipstreaming updates to the .msi file. The installer includes all the updades. It's not not patching when installed.

    @ everyone

    If PDFMaker (Acrobat button) is unavailable in a Microsoft Office 2007 applications, like Word/Excel...ect
    create a .bat file with this command:


    regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\PDFMaker\Office\PDFMOfficeAddin.dll"

    for windows x64 change C:\Program Files\ to C:\Program Files (x86)\

    RUN IT AS ADMINISTRATOR

    extract Splash.dll_3D & rename it to Splash.dll
    everything will be fine...
