Packaging EverMap Redaction for Adobe Acrobat XI

To easily deploy Redaction for Adobe Acrobat XI, I created an MSI file using the AppDeploy Repackager. There are a total of 8 files it packages up. My firm has an enterprise license, which gets written to the AutoRedact.LIC file. To properly package this up, you can download the attached XML file I have made available that will generate the MSI using AppDeploy Repackager. You will need to install the EverMap application using your enterprise key on the same machine as Adobe Acrobat Standard XI and the repackager are installed on.

Another thing you can do is to pre-configure the preferences in the Redacting plugin. To do this, open Acrobat up, click Plug-Ins-->Redacting-->Preferences. Make whatever changes that are needed for all users. Click the Exemption Codes tab. Click Create New. You can lable the Group Title anything you prefer. I left it at Default. Click Add Code. I used REDACTED under Use this code for redacting. In the description field, I used Redaction. Click OK. Click OK. Click OK. This will create three CFS files located %APPDATA%\EverMap\AutoRedact. Create a GPO that will push these three files out to all systems with the Redaction app installed using a user policy. I limited this in the GPO via MSI GUID.

You can download the XML from here.

Here is what the XML looks like. The unins000.xxx files are forced to be created by AppDeploy.
