Hi,

I need to deploy some Adobe products. We use SCCM to do it, with packages. I triied to build a MSI with Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition, but when I deploy it, the process stops itself with no error. So I started to work with the XML files for the silent install.

I created my Deployement.xml and install.override. I put them at the same path of "Set-up.exe". So, in the folder, I have :

Deploy
Packages
Payloads
Resources
Deployement.xml
Install.override
Set-up.exe

Deployement.xml :

?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
Deployment>
Properties>
!--Note that the INSTALLDIR value is machine specific. The value below is a suggested default value but may need to be overriden.-->
Property name="INSTALLDIR">C:\Program Files\Adobe
Property name="mediaSignature">{15FEDA5F-141C-4127-8D7E-B962D1742728}
Property name="driverAdobeCode">{15FEDA5F-141C-4127-8D7E-B962D1742728}en_US
/Properties>
Payloads>
Payload adobeCode="{15FEDA5F-141C-4127-8D7E-B962D1742728}">
Action>install
/Payload>
Payload adobeCode="{667C8B6C-3EAF-4646-A8EC-D85CCC4D3D84}">
Action>install
/Payload>
/Payloads>
/Deployment>


install.override :

?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
Configuration>
Payload adobeCode="{7DFEBBA4-81E1-425B-BBAA-06E9E5BBD97E}">
Data key="Serial" protected="0">132510053423782689638436
Data key="Registration">Suppress
Data key="EULA">Suppress
Data key="Updates">Suppress
/Payload>
/Configuration>

But I still get the error code 16, I didn't find why this error occurs.

Thanks for help !

I don't think XML deployment is supported after Adobe CS4.
When it comes to the process stopping, i know the installer can be finnicky when it comes to running browsers and MS office applications during install.

Try enabling logging for the MSI that application manager generated and see what it says.

Adobe installers also generate logs in C:\Program files\Common Files\Adobe\Installers (not 100% definite path, taking this from memory) that you can have a peek at.

Have you tried building the xml's (which should work in cs5) your self, with just Setup.exe --record=1 and not using AAMEE

I think from CS5, there is an inbuilt tool which will customize the CS5 application. Did you read the installation guide with comes with the software?

Using adobe`s AAMEE is by far the easiest tool to setup adobe CS 5 and CS 5.5 products !  It creats the package and you just need to add the package to SCCM.

Works like a charm....99% of the time for me and i`ve setup most of Adobe`s CS suites this past year on SCCM 2007.

AAMEE can be found here http://www.adobe.com/devnet/creativesuite/enterprisedeployment.html
