A Patcher’s PSA: Adobe Acrobat and Reader Getting Major Version Number Updates in April

According to Adobe…

Starting in April, 2017, all customers on the Continuous track will move from 15.xx to 17.xx after the patch is deployed. There will be no change for customers on Classic track or older versions like Acrobat/Reader XI.
New version number will appear on splash screens, MSI queries, ARP, DLL file versions, About box and application version (for Mac). SCCM/Casper will also start reporting the new version. If there are any software audit scripts that check for version number, they will start reporting 17.xx version.

Remember, if there are any patch deployment scripts which use version number checks before applying a patch, they may need changes to handle 17.xx version number.
