How to Create Deploy Adobe Acrobat Application using SCCM ConfigMgr Easiest Method

I hope most ConfigMgr admins know how to Create and Deploy Adobe Acrobat application using SCCM or a different application. But I will share my knowledge in this blog post on creating Adobe Application in SCCM for those who recently started learning ConfigMgr (A.K.A SCCM). This post will basically help the newcomers or freshers.

Before registering or adding any application into the ConfigMgr console, you need to test the particular application manually. Make sure you use all the use cases while doing testing and check all the application functionality. I will suggest taking help from your packaging team to create a package and then add an application in the SCCM console.

First, you download the required adobe application from the site. Test and verify the application, then use the silent switch with the command line for the installation. As I said, you can also take help from your packaging member for packaging once everything is ready; use the below step to create an application in SCCM. Check out this blog post-SCCM Install Behavior for Applications.
