    Adobe - EXE or MSI ?

      For Adobe Products, I have the option to use EXE or MSI.  Which one is best to use and why?

          The primary advantage to using the MSI-based installer is that it can be remotely uninstalled via the Windows Installer Service.

           

          EXE's are a bit harder to uninstall, and quite often cannot be done so remotely.

           

          From the perspective of Patch Manager, the product provides a tool in Computer Explorer -> Installed Software to do remote uninstallation of MSI-based products.
