To deploy custom Settings with Adobe Photoshop CS3 you have to setup your Settings, and copy afterwards your Config-File called

"Adobe Photoshop CS3 Prefs.psp" (which is binary) located in C:\Documents and Settings\user22-2\Application Data\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS3\Adobe Photoshop CS3 Settings\Adobe Photoshop CS3 Prefs.psp


This file you could deploy with Filecopy, and/or MSI and Active-Setup to the Userprofile - so far so good

But warning: "Adobe Photoshop CS3 Prefs.psp" is a binary file - and stores hardcoded Variables inside..

My File have Strings like:
\ \ s e r v e r . m y d o m a i n . c o m \ h o m e $ \ u s e r 2 2 - 2 \ = Documents & Settings
or
C : \ D o c u m e n t s a n d S e t t i n g s \ u s e r 2 2 - 2 \ A p p l i c a t i o n D a t a \ A d o b e \ A d o b e P h o t o s h o p C S 3 \ P r e s e t s \ B r u s h e s \

and so on...

Result: if another User try to "File / New" open a blank Document / Picture, he gets a warning, that he has no access to \ \ s e r v e r . m y d o m a i n . c o m \ h o m e $ \ u s e r 2 2 - 2 \

If i try to edit inside the binary-file results in ignoring all settings, and in creating a new blank settings-file...

Does anyone have an idea, how to deal with?
