Hi All

I am stuck at trying to silently install this application. When I mean stuck, I mean I am unable to make the setup pick up the right information it needs. Ok.. here;s what I have done.
1. Tried to get a response file by running setup.exe --record=1... I did not get any xml files as ouput.
2. I have tried the exact procedure for CS3 to this but that did not work either.
First problem is that there is no 'driver folder' section in the setup.xml file in the 'payloads' folder.
I added the driver folder entry and modified the 'en_US_deployment.xml' to include the Serial Number, and ran the setup.exe with this syntax..
Setup.exe --mode=Silent --deploymentFile=".\en_US_deployment.xml"
Am out of ideas.. Any help is highly appreciated.

You need to figure out why no XML files are created. The default location of these files (when created) is "[System Drive]:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Installers"
Your command line is correct but it wont work unless you have the "install.xml" file and create the "application.xml.override" file.

Check this doc out, it explains it all.

I dont see any install.xml file in the folder "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Installers"
I did start the setup using
setup.exe --record=1.... but no xml files in the Installers folder.. There is just one log file.
I am going to hunt for clues in the log file........while I hope someone on here has installed this app silently... and can help.

Thanks!

Did you try using the Enterprise Deployment tool from Adobe?

How did you get this to work for you? I tried the Deployment Tool and it created an MSI for me. When I try to run the MSI it errors out with a 1603 error so I have yet to set it up to run through KACE.

So has anyone out there been able to create a Dreamweaver CS5 push that will work through KACE? If so, how? I tried using the Adobe Entrprise Deployment tool, but with no success. In fact, nothing has worked for me. I am going to try use the App Deploy repackager to create a new MSI that has our serial no, etc, embeded in it so I can upload the MSI to KACE and deploy it silently.

Apart from the fact that re-packaging MSIs is A Really Bad Idea (think "patching", "upgrades"...) why would your MSI be any different to Adobe's?

If you were to post the details of your specific problem in the dedicated KBox forum, you may have more success with responses.

Using the Adobe Enterprise Deployment tool worked.
It was very simple. The MSI would not take the passive switch or the QB until I modified the InstallUILevel.

On every launch of the shortcut though, I was getting a message, 'The extension manager will now launch and finish updating dreamweaver..' I got rid of this by deleting html5extn.htm in the folder C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS5\configuration\Startup
