For Acrobat DC, using the command is the only way to install. Command line has additional required parameters, which get missed if you run Setup.exe by double clicking.
For Acrobat XI, using the command to install is optional.
In the command:
- [INSTALLDIR] is the installation directory where Acrobat is to be installed on the client machine.
- [installLanguage] is the locale in which Acrobat is to be installed. Note that Acrobat might not be available in all languages, so you can only provide a locale that is supported by the Acrobat for that particular media. For example, to install Acrobat in the English (US) locale, specify en_US as the locale in the command. For a list of available locales for Acrobat in a particular suite, see the section Locales for different Acrobat configurations.
