Command to Apply multiple patches on Adobe Standard 9

Adobe 9 has reached the end of support cycle and the "Check for updates" in Help menu is no longer checking.

In order to apply multiple msp patch files to bring Adobe Standard from 9.0.0 to 9.5.5 - the latest version released without installing them one by one, here is what I do.

Step 1: Download the following 17 msp files from Adobe site, and save them to a folder such as C:\Adobe9Patches folder.

9.1.x
AcroProStdUpd910_T1T2_incr.msp
AcrobatUpd911_all_incr.msp
AcrobatUpd912_all_incr.msp
AcrobatUpd913_all_incr.msp

9.2.x
AcrobatUpd920_all_incr.msp

9.3.x
AcrobatUpd930_all_incr.msp
AcrobatUpd932_all_incr.msp
AcrobatUpd933_all_incr.msp

9.4.x
AcrobatUpd940_all_incr.msp
AcrobatUpd942_all_incr.msp
AcrobatUpd945_all_incr.msp
AcrobatUpd946_all_incr.msp

9.5.x
AcrobatUpd950_all_incr.msp
AcrobatUpd951_all_incr.msp
AcrobatUpd952_all_incr.msp
AcrobatUpd953_all_incr.msp
AcrobatUpd955_all_incr.msp



Step 2: Create a install.bat file with the command below,

msiexec /p C:\Adobe9Patches\AcroProStdUpd910_T1T2_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd911_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd912_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd913_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd920_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd930_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd932_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd933_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd940_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd942_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd945_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd946_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd950_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd951_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd952_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd953_all_incr.msp;C:\Adobe9Patches\AcrobatUpd955_all_incr.msp REINSTALLMODE=OMUS REINSTALL=All REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qn

Step 3: Run the command as the administrator. Wait till the msiexec process died down in the task manager, then reboot the PC one time.
