Acrobat/Reader: how to automatically check the installed version

Description

In enterprise environments it is often required to provide some kind of health check application to check the pre-requisites (i.e. installed apps and versions) on client machines.  This provides an automated way of checking that the client machine is correctly setup for use in business workflows that rely on certain installed applications such as Adobe Acrobat/Reader.

Solution
