G'Day Sharon,

See my reply post for Photoshop CS3. I approached the Flash CS3 the same way.
Installed vanilla Flash in admin profile.
Registered it.
Copied the files cache.db, pcd.db, caps.db, application.xml, adobe tsf file from the FlexNet folder in the All Users profile.
Also run the app and configure any preferences and then copy the preferences file out of the profile. This must be instaklled for each user using an Active Setup (plenty of posts on how to do this).

Used the en_US.mst (from the disk), added the properties to the transform file:
ADOBE_SETUP=1 and UPGRADINGADOBECODE=1(coutesy of Mr MARIN Appdeploy member extraordinaire)
Copied the Addons that were required for Flash. Added the above property values for each Addon in the thier folder (this is time consuming) by mst file.

Hi Wayne, Thank u so much. I've read ur previous post n u've mentioned tht "We have created a custom msi which gets installed as prereq addon with these files for all our CS3 apps without problems. If we do get a licensing error or the ambitious 'fatal error' it's usually the application.xml or other files in the AMT folder or one of these files cache.db, caps.db or pcd.db storing corrupt data. Maybe, like I experienced, the license code was for a single seat instead of a volume license. Lesson learnt there; like don't assume.."
If my license key is for a single seat then cant i create a package? I couldn't get u. Can u pls help me? Thnx a lot.

Regards,
Sharon.

Sharon,
Are you using an admin account to install? Have you got an extract of the install log so that we can determine where it's failing with error value 3?

Hi.. Silent installation is working fine for me.. i.e., path of the setup.exe --mode=silent --deploymentFile=path of the deployment.xml.
Now i want to suppress the license key and the registration..
But in this forum, they have mentioned abt application.xml.override file and setup.xml
How is it working exactly? How can i use while installing? Pls help me..

WayneB and Marin, thank you so much for pointing this out to us.

I'm currently working at a rather large enterprise where they want to use CS3 Premium, CS3 Master and individual CS3 components.
I had no issues at all using CS3 Premium following the Adobe deployment PDF.

But the Master is a totally different story...
Using the same method for Master results in the error (fter approx. 3 mins): The following payloads were not installed due to missing serial number (encore, soundbooth, indesign etc.)

My payloads folder includes 64 folders..

I'd like to use your method but I'm having a hard time figuring out which components belong to each adobe module.
Do you have any info on this? You mention 38 adobe dependencies..

I want to split up my master collection into individual modules...

Thanks

GDay Gn!uz,

That's going to be a challenge. We briefly looked at that and discovered that to split them up was going to be too time consuming. Our way, we delivered all components from the full CS3 payloads folder no matter whether they wanted one or more of the suite apps. If you look at the alm.log in the %temp% folder you will see how all the components are registered whether you open a Design standard or Web standard Adobe app.

As an aside, we are finding that because we are not deploying the AUM5 applying the updates is proving challenging.
We are resolving it through applying the files extracted from a setup capture and incorporating these files into the Adobe CS3 app. But they are not making it easy. We are progressing though having applied the updates for Flash and Photoshop as well as some of the addons.

I hope to keep you all posted.

Regards
Wayne

Thanks for your reply. I was thinking the same. It is too time consuming to split up.
So I've decided to use the same method as the Premium suite: deploy a local installation point (using HP OpenView Radia) and initiate the installation from there.

So 'just' need to figure out how to resolve the installation error!

Thanks for your help! Let's hope the've learned a lesson!
