Hi,
I have to package Dreamweaver CS3.
I create install.xml and uninstall.xml by using //setup.exe --record=1
and i created application.xml.override file and put it into driver folder as mentioned in guide.
it is installing properly...no issue...

But after installation finished,,when i try to open Dreamweaver CS3..it is asking for registration,,,,although i provide all the details in the application.xml.override file

is it the right way ...
i just want to know how to do registration during silent installation.,,,

Hi Krishna,
Yes, it's right way....what you say, but i need to ask you one question, does your company want's you to suppress that registration or it's ok with the registration.
If you need to suppress, i don't know which tool you are using for packging ? But, we can suppress that one.
One more thing is that, registration will comes when you launch, ok, so according to your e-mail i think you install application silently successfully, so you are good .

By 'registration', do you mean it's asking for the serial number again?
I had a similar problem recently with a CS4 suite (sic... should be spelt shite)
The licence key I was supplied was for MAC OS - not Windows
The recording process worked with the serial number I had but after deployment, running any shortcut prompted for the serial number...
Until the mistake regarding the serial number was discovered, I thought we didn't have a Volume Licence Key but a retail product key
Have fun...

Hi,
Thank u for your response...
when i launched Dreamweaver CS3 it is asking for registration...
i have to deploy this software into 1000 machine in the organisation,,,,they will not have the serial key..
so when i will deploy the software silently..that time only i have to do registartion,,,,
so that user of those 1000 machine will not be prompt for registration...
how to supress that.....???
so my question is...how to supress this registration so that it will not ask user to do registration...

BTW i am using HP CAE packager...

Q: By 'registration', do you mean it's asking for the serial number again?
A:
Q: If you add the serial number you have when prompted after deployment, is the key accepted?
A:
Q: File 'application.xml.override' is in the correct 'Driver' folder?
A:
Q: The serial key entry in this file reads in this format? i.e. the hyphons have been removed:
<Data key="Serial" protected="0">123456781234567812345678</Data>

Q: By 'registration', do you mean it's asking for the serial number again?
A: Serial number again means? during --record=1 it didnt ask for any serial number.
when i am launching Dreamweaver CS3 after installation it is asking for rsgistration means i have to provide serial number.
Q: If you add the serial number you have when prompted after deployment, is the key accepted?
A: YES-no issue
Q: The serial key entry in this file reads in this format? i.e. the hyphons have been removed:
<Data key="Serial" protected="0">123456781234567812345678</Data>
A: Yes

let's have look on my application.xml.override file
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Configuration>
<Payload>
<Data key="Serial" protected="0">116463396464929223456789</Data>
<Data key="Registration">Suppress</Data>
<Data key="EULA">Suppress</Data>
<Data key="Updates">Suppress</Data>
</Payload>
</Configuration>

I kept this file into "D:\softwares\DreamWeaverCS3\Adobe CS3\payloads\AdobeDreamweaver9en_USVolume"

one more question....what will be the extension of this application.xml.override file??

That is the complete file name - the extension being .override
;)


Dude - redact your serial number - i.e. show the format but not the actual key...

application.xml.override
That is the whole name + extension
open file - chose an application to open the unknown file type in - choose Notepad - untick file association to this app
The contents are in text - the file is not a .txt file

Good hunting,
Al

Hey Krishna,
Please edit your application.xml.override file, its contain your company product serial number, that not safe. When ever you are trying to post anything make sure you are not posting those things, its might be risk for you, just keep some thing lik xxxx-yyyy-iiii-eeee-tttt-kkkk( every one can understand that may be some serial number).
just a suggestion not more than that.
