I recently used the Adobe Customization Wizard to create a custom transforms (.mst) file for the latest version of Acrobat Reader DC and deployed it to our network. Today I discovered that the customizations are blocking Sharepoint documents on our own intranet from opening. It was a single checkbox I had clicked by mistake. I have corrected the error and updated the distribution points.
The problem I have is that Windows Installer doesn't let you apply an
.mst file after-the-fact. You have to do a complete uninstall/reinstall of the application to apply a different set of transforms. SCCM has no option to do this. If I update or create a new application, SCCM will just detect that it's already been installed and won't apply the fix since it's the same version of the same application.
The only thing I can think of at this point is to "tag" each computer with a
.txt file or something and use that as part of the detection method. But of course then I have to use a script to do the uninstall/reinstall and tag the machine and that'll take all day.
Is there a simpler solution?
I'm using SCCM 1607, BTW. The workstations are a blend of 32- and 64-bit Win7 and Win10 computers.
