Tips: How to install software using the GPO deployment

This step is about installing Acrobat software using GPO deployment.
As there are two GPO deployment methods available, you can use any of them to install Acrobat software. Now, let’s discuss the methods one by one.
• Assign the software to a computer.
If you use this method, you can make the Acrobat software available to all the users of the computer where you assign it. If the software is installed automatically, it can be removed only by the user with the administrative privileges on that computer.
Adobe supports this deployment method for the following software: Acrobat 7.0 Professional, Acrobat 7.0 Standard, Acrobat Elements 7.0, and Adobe Reader 7.0.



• Publish the software to a user (or Active Directory group).
If you use this second method, you can make the Acrobat software available only to the specific users or the Active Directory groups on the computer where the software is installed. If the software is not installed automatically, the user has to choose to install it using the Add or Remove Programs control panel on the computer. Moreover, the user can also remove the software using this control panel. However, it will remain available in the control panel (under “Add New Program”) for them or other users to install later.
Adobe supports using this deployment method for the following software: Adobe Reader 7.0.
All GPO-based deployment is managed using the Group Policy Management Console.
