Hi all,

I have just started looking at this package and I'm seeking a way to install it silently and wondered if there was any way of installing it without Adobe AIR? There are quite a few things that will need to be fixed within the package, i.e. EULA acceptances, turning off auto updates etc.
I am using the information in this link for the silent install but I feel I will need more info.

Has anyone had the pleasure of packaging this?

Rgds,
Mark

I'm right now trying to make a package of that product - that will not be easy, I think.

As it seems, Adobe Air is just needed for the Adobe Community Help. But I'm not sure about that.

I'm trying to install it with the MSIs extracted, but did not have success until now.

Hi,

Progress so far is I've created a transforms for the following which are all part of the Adobe Premier Elements install...

Adobe_AirRuntime_1.5.3.9130
Adobe_ElementsOrganizer_9
SmartSound_QuicktracksPremElements_9.0
And finally
Adobe_PremiereElements_9

However, if I try to install these individually and then try to install Adobe Premier Elements last I am not having any success.
It looks like it's not installing Elements correctly at the end.
I think perhaps looking through what custom actions are in the Adobe Premier Elements will give more insight but it's a nightmare trying to make sense of Adobe's msi's!!

Any more luck with this anyone?

Hello,

this is the correct installation order:

Adobe AIR
(you have get from %temp% when running AIR)

Adobe Community Help
(dont remember where i got this from :-( )

Adobe Application Manager
(dont remember where i got this from :-( )

\ElementsOrganizer\Elements 9 Organizer.msi
(Setting LanguageCode Property to the right thing ex. de_de and ex. ORGANIZER_DE_DE = 1, deleting entries in LaunchCondition Table or NOT_STANDALONE = 1 )

\Adobe Premiere Elements 9.msi
(Setting LanguageCode Property to the right thing ex. de_de and LANGUAGE Property the same way, deleting entries in LaunchCondition Table or NOT_STANDALONE = 1 )

\SmartSound\Quicktracks for Premiere Elements.msi
(Setting PREMIERE_PLUGIN_FOLDER to ex. C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Elements 9\Plug-ins\de_DE )

SmartSound Full Spectrum 22k Library.msi
(this you have to get from %temp% when running Music Installer Full Spectrum 22k.exe, Setting the Directory to SOUND_FILES for the Component Sound_Files)

\ElementsSTIInstaller\set-up --deploymentFile=".\deploy\ElementsSTIInstaller.install.xml" --installSourcePath="." --mode=Silent

That will install everything working.
The Organizer will work in the right Language, the Elements i did not have time to find out what is missing.
Thats what i found out in 10 hours...

Sorry i'm to lazy for more text :-)

Greetings

Hi Joe C, Did you get this install to work using the details outlined above? I've tried to install using the method you've outlined and I can't get the Adobe Premiere Elements msi installing. I can install all of the other components seperately however when I try installing Adobe Premiere elements with the following command line it crashes the Windows Installer service.
msiexec /i Adobe Premiere Elements 9.msi transforms=1033.mst ELEMENTS_EN_US=1 ORGANIZER_EN_US=1 SERIALNUMBER=XXXX- DISABLEEMSFEATURES=1 DISABLEOLSFEATURES=1 COUNTRY=242 WATCHSERVICE=0 NOT_STANDALONE=1

Any idea what I could be doing wrong?
Currently I'm following this process

Install MSXML6
msiexec /i msxml6.msi /qb

Install ISScript 9
msiexec /i ISScript.msi /qb

Install Adobe Air (transformed to disbale autoupdate etc)
msiexec /i setup.msi transforms=setup.mst /qb

Install Adobe Community Help
AIRInstallerRunner.exe -airRuntime AdobeAIRInstaller.exe -silent -eulaAccepted -programMenu -airAppPath AdobeHelp.air

Install Elements Organizer (transformed for NOT_STANDALONE=1 etc)
msiexec /i ElementsOrganizer9.msi transforms=ElementsOrganizer9.mst /qb

Install Adobe Premiere Elements
msiexec /i Adobe Premiere Elements 9.msi transforms=1033.mst ELEMENTS_EN_US=1 ORGANIZER_EN_US=1 SERIALNUMBER=XXXX- DISABLEEMSFEATURES=1 DISABLEOLSFEATURES=1 COUNTRY=242 WATCHSERVICE=0 NOT_STANDALONE=1


This is where the install fails.
Anyone got any ideas?
Should I try installing the SmartSound products first? I will give that a go and see what happens. I also need to go through the Custom Actions to see if there are any obvious ones in there telling me it's trying to call another install etc....

Please help!

OK, I've got it working.

I had to install in this order.

Step 1: Install MSXML6
Step 2: Install Adobe AIR
Step 3: Install Adobe Community Help
Step 4: Install ISScript 9
Step 5: Install Smartsound FullSpectrum22kLibrary
Step 6: Install Smartsound Quicktracks
Step 7: Install Adobe Premiere Elements - transformed with customizations and new properties added.
ELEMENTS_EN_US=1 ORGANIZER_EN_US=1 SERIALNUMBER=XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX DISABLEEMSFEATURES=1 DISABLEOLSFEATURES=1 COUNTRY=242 WATCHSERVICE=0 NOT_STANDALONE=1
Step 8: Install Adobe Organizer - transformed with customizations and new properties added
Step 10: Install Adobe ElementsSTI Installer - transformed with customizations and new properties added

But in order for the Premiere Elements package to install successfully I needed to remove a Custom Action -
I removed a Custom Action called “InstallFinishDisplay” which called an executable “performsubInstalls” to install the smartsound components of this installation. But as I am installing these separately I needed to remove this custom action to ensure the installer didn’t crash while trying to install the extra components which is what was happening before I removed the Custom Action.

It is now working successfully.
