We are trying to install/uninstall Adobe CS4 silently. We are using below URL as a reference.


Our problem lies in that, we have trial version of Adobe CS4 and whenever we try to install CS4 by '<Path to setup> --mode=silent --DeploymentFile=<payh to install.xml>' command line, installation terminates with the error

'Exception: Property "serialNumber" is not valid: number is not present or well-formed'.

Kindly let us know

1 Silent installation/uninstallation of Adobe CS4 WITHOUT serial key is possible or not?

2 Any alternative methods to achieve the same.

Thanks in advance

In that PDF, on page 7, the 2nd bullet point says Remove trial and beta versions of Creative Suite 4 components That would *tend* to suggest - to me, at any rate - that you can't use this method with trial versions.
