Installing Adobe creative suite design premium 3.3 patches silently with the -silent switch and i am getting a return code 6 (Patch was unable to validate the target application.) I found an article on adobe's support portal below about killing the process before running the patches silently.

Kill processes before executing the patch
A list of processes exists within the patcher application.You can write a script that kills executing processes on target systems prior to executing the patch. This will ensure that conflicting processes are not executing when the patcher runs. You can determine the list of conflicting processes that must be killed by examining the AppRunningList in the config.xml file.

My config.xml file looks something like this at the bottom. Can someone tell me what is the process adobe is talking about? Is there an order for the patch to run silently that i don't know about? Please advice

<AppRunning>^[Aa][Dd][Oo][Bb][Ee] [Pp][Hh][Oo][Tt][Oo][Ss][Hh][Oo][Pp] [Cc][Ss]*</AppRunning>
