Hi I'm trying to install photoshop cs6 remotly and silently via SCCM - System Center Configuration Manager.

I want to install the software without the serial key (company wants this way).

I only want to provide the serial after the instalation and on the first use of the software.

Do you know the procedure to do this.

f so thanks

Have you tried configuring it using the Adobe tool for enterprise deployment, so that it installs in demo mode which does not need a serial, if I recall correctly. ??

Hi Thanks for your suggestion.
I've tried the Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition to create a Trial Package but i don't know why after the creation of the package, when i run the MSI it starts to install but after a while nothing is installed and it does not show me any error message .
I am trying to create a file serialization but the first time I tried it gave me the following message early on : " The path name is not valid Please provide a valid path"

The msi wraps the standard setup.exe process via a custom action, the action running context maybe wrong. Check taskmgr you should see the process spawn during the install.

I hate you Adobe!

This app will bring you nothing but pain.

Anyway, you know about the AAMMEE (ABC XYZ) tool, so you have that part correct.

You need version 3.1


Before shoving it into SCCM, do a test deployment via command prompt. Goto this site and get the free tool Run As System, so you..can run as system! Test your install using the system context. This tool just saves faffing, it just a double, type cmd.exe, ok - and boom, you have a system context command prompt.

Now, most likely it will s* itself, cos Adobe products are good at doing that sort of thing. Look in C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Installers for the installer logs, it will be compressed gz format. Unpack it and have a read of the log files.

This will help:

Please note the Windows Installer log file from the Adobe installer (wrapper) will be near on useless. You need the logs above as its more detailed. 

Good luck, you'll need it!

*at least its only Photoshop, wait till you need to do Design Premium...

Hi Thanks for your suggestion

Right now i'm trying to build a new package using Adobe application manager enterprise edition.

I think the previous package did nothing because an error concerning the extensions happened during the build of the pervious package.

I'm trying again this time without the extensions and without updates. (saw it in the link below)

If this fails i'll try it your way

Thanks again
