I'm trying to repackage this beast. I've read quite a few posts on this but still haven't gotten it to work.

I'm looking at doing 2 things:

1) perform a silent install
2) Create an msi for GPO distribution

For 1) I've done everything in this post. The end result looks good, all apps are installed in the right location with the right shortcuts without any errors. Now when I run any of them I get an error. InDesign simply crashes, Photoshop complains about personalization, Illustrator says that the install is damaged and GoLive also gives an error I can't recall at the moment.

Obviously I must be doing something very wrong. I'm using the abcpy.ini files that belong to the right apps, I'm importing the registry keys as specified in the post and still no luck. I didn't yet do the trick with the photoshop serial in the registrys uninstall info, but that doesn't explain why the rest of the apps are bailing.

Then there's step 2). Created an msi using adminstudio. [edit] just imported the uninstall registry settings for all the apps.. most apps start now [/edit]

Help/Tips would be appreciated.

Those errors sounds to me that the sif-file havn't been correct installed.

Have do followed this line in the post you sent: "6. For each application that is installed, copy the suites.sif file to the required location (also made note of for each application in the SuitesInstaller.log")."
