It’s always great to have command line parameters that can give us a lot of great features like silent installation, etc. In this article, I will list out some command line parameters that would help us in doing great things while installing Adobe Reader.
Adobe Reader Command Line Parameters
- /n Start a separate instance of Acrobat or Adobe Reader, even if one is currently open.
- /s Suppress the splash screen
- /o Suppress the open file dialog box.
- /h Start Acrobat or Adobe Reader in a minimized window
- /sAll Silent Mode for product
- /sPB Silent Mode with Progress Bar for product
- /rs Reboot Suppress
- /rps Reboot Prompt Suppress
- /ini “PATH” Alternative initialization file
- /sl “LANG_ID” Set Language; LANG_ID – Code in decimal digits
- /l Enable Error Logging /msi[Command line] Parameters for MSIEXEC
AcroRd32.exe /p pathname— Start Adobe Reader and display the Print dialog box.
AcroRd32.exe /t path "printername" "drivername" "portname"— Start Adobe Reader and print a file while suppressing the Print dialog box. The path must be fully specified.
The four parameters of the /t option evaluate to path, printername, drivername, and portname (all strings).
- printername — The name of your printer.
- drivername — Your printer driver’s name, as it appears in your printer’s properties.
- portname — The printer’s port. portname cannot contain any “/” characters; if it does, the output is routed to the default port for that printer.
Using these parameters you can perform large-scale deployment of Adobe Reader X.
