    Can't get the msp to udpate. I create a new update named adobe 11.0.0.7. I download the "AdbeRdr11000_en_US.msi" file, added a file "AdbeRdrUpd11007.msp". It will install 11.0.0.0 but not 11.0.0.7. I tried creating an update by downloading the 11.0.0.7 exe and extracting but still but does not install. Anyone have any step by step installation for 11.0.0.7?

    I'm a bit confused about exactly what you're doing. You cannot simply add the MSP file to the update package of an MSI install and have the MSP applied. You must create a package for the MSI and then a separate package for the MSP which has the original MSI package as a dependency.

    This how I do it. I download and extract the AdbeRdr11007_en_US.exe. Using adobe customization, I create an update.mst. Then I create my LUP update linking to the adobe.msi,cab and update mst. Are you saying I need to create another update linking to the .msp. On a new update for the msp, do I link to the adobe.msi and add the msp?

    Got it. I created a new update (which I tried before but failed- tried creating rules, but this time created without rules).
