Hi everyone.

Has anybody packaged Adobe Presenter 7? I am trying to suppress Registration and EULA propmpts but no luck so far. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

I'm not familiar with the application but most likely it's more or less the same as the cs suites where you have to edit some xml files. Try one of these, I think you can judge best which one is more likely to work (judging from how old/new the product is):

  • Adobe Presenter 7 stores license information (EULA suppression) in file: CommonFilesFolder\Adobe\Adobe PCD\cache\cache.db and update information in LocalAppDataFolder\Adobe\Updater6\AdobeUpdaterPrefs.dat.

The majority of Adobe products have a discrete customisation tool for exactly this purpose, although IIRC for some, the tool is only available for the Enterprise versions of that product. Adobe's web site is the place to start looking.

In many of the situations Registration and EULA propmpts can be captured under Registries.
Try using a light wt snapshot tool to capture the registries.

Thanks for the info guys. I tried each and every thing before I came here.
REG entries capture works only on the machine I am taking the capture on.
It is just an MSI. NO setup.exe or xml files like CS3 or CS4.
No access to the customization tool :(
No info on Presenter website about disabling the prompts.

I will update here if I am able to solve this.

I've quickly downloaded the Trial version... However, I have no way to test it as I don't have Powerpoint available now. I might give it a try tomorrow. As far as I can tell by looking into the MSI with Wise I'd do the following, but you probably tried already:

Properties (Didn't hear you about this, so I assume this part is working):

INSTALL_MODE=RETAIL
SERIALNUMBER=xxx (not sure if dashes are required or not, have you tried both? max. char is 29 btw, maybe you can tell from that)


Then there's 2 EULA keys:

"Registry11","2","SOFTWARE\Adobe\Presenter\[ProductVersion]\EULA","EULA_ACCEPTED","#0","ISRegistryComponent"
"Registry5","2","SOFTWARE\Adobe\Presenter\[ProductVersion]","EULA_ACCEPTED","#0","ISRegistryComponent"


Default value is #0, so I would change them to #1, both.




Like I said, if I find some spare time tomorrow I'll give it another try! (We're nearing the end of our project, so I have to wait for new apps now and then...)

Thanks Rheuvel. I saw those regkeys. 0 and 1 both don't work. EULA is still prompted.
I did figure out how to disable the registration prompt. Kind of what you said about snapshots earlier.
After I clicked don't ask again, "com.adobe.346.registration" file was created in %APPDATA% folder. I included that file with the package and no registration prompts. EULA is still there. I will post up here if i figure it out.

The EULA registry entries aren't even changed when you accept it. No significant change in files either when snapshotting....
I have no clue where Adobe hides those settings.

I found some .js files in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Presenter 7\adobe_epic\eula and ...\registration
This topic mentions something about hiding menu's in Acrobat using .js files, but it isn't even remotely the same: Adobe Acrobat Professional 8 - Disable online Support
So another dead end....

I'm running out of options as well. The main problem is, the whole application is one big Powerpoint add-in and I don't know where to look.


Try see it from the bright side though: You've tackled the registration. That only leaves the EULA.
Users will have to click a checkbox and click accept, et voilá! It's done.
The impact is minor. You did the best you could.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. Its just a matter of clicking ACCEPT and the rest is done.

Thanks people.

(sigh...the same old questions, over and over and over...)

What have you tried so far? Have you snapshotted acceptance of the EULA?

Just wanted to share this.

Found this on an Adobe forum related to the same problem - it worked for me so it might work for you:

"After installation of Presenter 7, replace the all contents of the file:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Presenter 7\adobe_epic\eula\install.html

(Note: File may also be located here - C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Presenter 7\adobe_epic\eula\en_US\install.html

with the following content (where the <body onload...> is the important one

================================================================
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>License Agreement</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<link href="./../default.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<script language="javascript" src="./../domutils.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" src="./../wizardcore.js"></script>
</head>
<body onload="doAccept()" background="./../background.png">
</body>
</html>
================================================================

So when i've done the installation, i just copy over this modified install.html file and it auto accepts the eula for me. This is not a fix for this but more a workaround for it.

This code works only to suppress eula & registration

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<Configuration>

<Payload>

   <Data key="Registration">Suppress</Data>

   <Data key="EULADelay">-1</Data>

</Payload>

</Configuration>
