Hi,

We are currently testing the Adobe CS3 Master Collection deployment (via Radia). Installation all goes well now. We initially had problems when using the default install.xml file. Some third party addons and codec packs could not be installed due to a missing serial number. This 'bug' can be solved by recording the setup to generate a custom xml (setup.exe --record=1).

Anyway, back to the topic. We now have a fully working CS3 Master Collection installation on our test-client pc's. Somehow it seems self-repair is not working after breaking the installation. I cannot find any info on this... I'd like to have a self-repairing installation of my Master Collection. Anyone have any info on this? I don't want to manually repair...

Adobe CS3 is broken up into multiple MSI's, it is possible that you are trying to invoke a repair on something that is in a different msi..

- Is your entry point (shortcut, COM, extension) advertised?

- Have you checked the startup of the entry point with Process Monitor?

Thanks for your answers.. I haven't modified anything. I just initiated a local installation using the 'documented' Adobe Enterprise Deployment PDF. The shortcuts are not advertised. Can anyone verify Adobe CS3 does not support self-repair? If this is the case it would be truly insane!

I don't want my clients to run a manual repair (which takes over an hour)...

I created a custom.xml, but still Radia will not install CS3 Creative Suite.
I created a batch file with the command line, but they don't like to use batchfiles so I created a wise script which launches this batch file. ZCREATE It launches it, but Disconnects.right after that. Shows in the Apps.list as 'Installed'......????
I then put the path to the batchfile in ZCREATE...........same thing.

Can you please tell me what you did to get it installed with the custom.xml using the application.xml.override.

Thanks so much.
