Hi All.

I am having some problems with the Adobe CS3.
I have used the forum and some of the answers about making silent installations and it kind of works...

When I activate the batch file it works as it is intendet.
Batch file look like this:
"\\Server01\udv\[ Under Construction ]\ADA\Adobe CS3\Adobe CS3\Setup.exe" --mode=silent --deploymentFile="\\Server01\udv\[ Under Construction ]\ADA\Adobe CS3\Adobe CS3\deployment\install.xml"

This file will, when activated manualy, install all components in the CS3 package.

But it's a lot of users who wants this package, so I don't have the time to install it manually all the time.
So I use the batch file as a script i Group Policy Management, but here it starts to get weird!
Then only the Design Standard part of CS3 gets installed og the machines.

I have created the install.xml file using --record=1 and placed it in the folder where the original install.xml was.
I have created application.xml.override looking like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Configuration>
<Payload>
<Data key="Serial" protected="0">Here is my serialno...</Data>
<Data key="Registration">Suppress</Data>
<Data key="EULA">Suppress</Data>
<Data key="Updates">Suppress</Data>
</Payload>
</Configuration>

And placed it in the folder Adobe CS3\payloads\AdobeDesignSuiteStandarden_US_Volume\

Why?
What am I doing wrong?
Why wont it install when i use AD?
And how do i then do it?


Thanks.
Allan.

The install.xml file tells Setup.exe which payloads to install...did you verify that they're all listed?

For instance, here is a stock install.xml included with Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Standard:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><Deployment>
<Properties>
<Property name="installLanguage">en_US</Property>
</Properties>
<Payloads>
<!--Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional (At install, older versions get upgraded)-->
<Payload adobeCode="{AC76BA86-1033-0000-7760-000000000003}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<!--Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Standard-->
<Payload adobeCode="{0B47B6A5-A019-4B7E-AD93-F9CCDB6DCF7E}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<!--Adobe Illustrator CS3-->
<Payload adobeCode="{C4519961-AC64-4565-B3AF-9050296B5D5A}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<!--Adobe InDesign CS3-->
<Payload adobeCode="{24D77A7C-E10B-4057-9974-FAB8BFDAC853}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<!--Adobe Photoshop CS3-->
<Payload adobeCode="{30C4B843-28DA-466F-AFCA-CB0ED153C826}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<!--Adobe Version Cue CS3 Server-->
<Payload adobeCode="{abd781e6-d5ca-45aa-a5f7-f64799eb1c04}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
</Payloads>
</Deployment>

And here's the install.xml from Adobe Creative Suite Design Premium:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><Deployment>
<Properties>
<Property name="installLanguage">en_US</Property>
</Properties>
<Payloads>
<!--Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional (At install, older versions get upgraded)-->
<Payload adobeCode="{AC76BA86-1033-0000-7760-000000000003}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<!--Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Premium-->
<Payload adobeCode="{7005ECBC-F54B-42FD-81E4-934BC43FA329}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<!--Adobe Dreamweaver CS3-->
<Payload adobeCode="{00E5C764-9525-44C3-8404-712AD06AE12A}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<!--Adobe Flash CS3-->
<Payload adobeCode="{3BC8460B-085E-47F3-9C62-8FFCBAF11D78}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<!--Adobe Flash Video Encoder-->
<Payload adobeCode="{7BB7F66A-D798-45A3-A383-0727FB1EBF8E}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<!--Adobe Illustrator CS3-->
<Payload adobeCode="{C4519961-AC64-4565-B3AF-9050296B5D5A}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<!--Adobe InDesign CS3-->
<Payload adobeCode="{24D77A7C-E10B-4057-9974-FAB8BFDAC853}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<!--Adobe Photoshop CS3-->
<Payload adobeCode="{30C4B843-28DA-466F-AFCA-CB0ED153C826}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<!--Adobe Version Cue CS3 Server-->
<Payload adobeCode="{abd781e6-d5ca-45aa-a5f7-f64799eb1c04}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
</Payloads>
</Deployment>

As you can see, the difference between the two products is that Design Premium installs Dreamweaver, Flash, and Flash Video Encoder as well.

They are all listed in the install.xml file.
That's what makes this so strange! [;)]

Ok, let's back up. Which product(s) did you put in the source directory? I am making an assumption that you combined a few different Creative Suite installs into the same directory, with the intention of using it to selectively install one or another using different install.xmls...is this true? If not, tell me what you did and what you're attempting to do.

Well... this is my last day in this firm, so i don't think it's importent anymore.

But this is the install.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Deployment>
<Properties>
<Property name="INSTALLDIR">C:\Programmer\Adobe</Property>
<Property name="OS64Bit">0</Property>
<Property name="StartMenuSubFolder">C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Menuen Start\Programmer\Adobe Design Standard CS3</Property>
<Property name="driverAdobeCode">{0B47B6A5-A019-4B7E-AD93-F9CCDB6DCF7E}</Property>
<Property name="eula_EPIC_EULA_ACCEPTED">1</Property>
<Property name="eula_EPIC_EULA_SELECTED">4</Property>
<Property name="installLanguage">en_US</Property>

<Payload adobeCode="{abd781e6-d5ca-45aa-a5f7-f64799eb1c04}"><Action>install</Action></Payload>
</Payloads>
</Deployment>

I have created the install.xml file using the line --record=1, and marked alle elementes in CS3 to be installed.
So is, that the whole package?

It may not be important for THAT company, but who knows - you may need to do the same thing for another company :D

That install.xml installs Acrobat 8 Professional, Illustrator CS3, InDesign CS3, Photoshop CS3, and Version Cue CS3 Server, and the Creative Suite 3 Design Standard wrapper. What other product(s) did you want installed? Here are the payload lines for all Adobe products (taken from the Adobe Master Collection install.xml) - you should be able to pick and choose the payloads that you need to install, and add them to your install.xml for a customized package (as long as you have the installation source files in the payloads folder to match what's in install.xml):

<!--Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional (At install, older versions get upgraded)-->
