This task will install Adobe Acrobat Pro XI 11.0.6 without the use of an AIP, which allows it to be upgraded through the product itself, or through the IBM provided updates in the "Updates for Windows Applications" site.

NOTE: Minor edits of this Task are required for this to work!

Edit1: You must download the Acrobat installer and place on either your own webserver, or the root server cache manually, and then replace the URL with your custom URL. Adobe does not allow anonymous downloads directly from:

Edit2: You must use APTEE to generate an prov.xml file and then copy and paste the "EnigmaData" from that file into the correct location in the createfile command in this task. See the comments in the ActionScript inside this task for more information. Using APTEE this way requires that you have a Volume License from Adobe.

This is awesome, Thank you! I have build a DC/2015 version using some of this code with almost no fixlet customization needed: /fixlet/details/21668
