Hi all, 
        I'm trying to silently install PSE12 without getting the country selection prompt on first run.
For PSE11, adding COUNTRY=xxx to the script worked eg
start /wait Setup.exe /UL1033 /V“SERIALNUMBER=1111-1111-1111-1111-1111-1111 COUNTRY=244"

However using this script to install PSE12 doesn't work.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Great stuff the ini file to do the country was the missing piece to my puzzel. Here's how I did a silent install


I used prtk.exe to create the prov.xml file:

adobe_prtk.exe --tool=VolumeSerialize --generate -- --serial=xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx --leid="V7{}PhotoshopElements-EMT12-Win-GM" --regsuppress=ss --eulasuppress

I copied the prov.xml file and adobe_prtk.exe to my source file location. I also created the elements.inin file as shown in previous post and copied that to the source files too.

I then created a batch file in the source file directory:


cd /d %~dp0

Start/wait setup.exe /q /UL1033/V"SERIALNUMBER=xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx"

adobe_prtk.exe --tool=VolumeSerialize --provfile

del /q c:\"users\public\desktop\adobe photoshop elements 12.lnk"

copy elements.ini "C:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Elements Organizer\12.0"


This batch file also removes the desktop shortcut to Elements


Hope this helps!!

I've been having that same issue and what I found is the first time you run Photoshop it creates "C:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Elements Organizer\12.0\elements.ini" without a country code in it.  So I put in 244 for the code and copied the elements.ini file into my source files. 

So the elements.ini looks like this:


And my install.bat looks like this:

start/wait Setup.exe /UL1033 /V“SERIALNUMBER=xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx"
copy elements.ini "C:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Elements Organizer\12.0"

Not sure if that's the best way to do it but it works for me.  Now I just need to figure out the license/registration issue.
