Can anyone suggest or know how to suppress the welcome screen when you open Adobe InDesign. The version I am having here at work is CS3. I know that you can do this under Help menu but what I want is to make it work with the silent installation.

The Enterprise Deployment Options for CS3 technical paper from Adobe explains how to suppress settings like serial number, EULA, Updates, Registration but not the welcome screen.

When I make the change under the Help menu and try to capture any changes in registry, I can not find any key that reflects the change. Also, it seems that it is not writing any thing to ini file. Could this be something within the program? Can the welcome screen be really suppressed by the way I want it?

Please help. Thanks. [:(]

Perhaps your capture process is excluding the registry key/INI file to which the app is writing. Use something else. In this situation (i.e. it's likely to only be one value/file entry), I'd use ProcMon to monitor the change as you make it or Ziff-Davis' In Control to snap before the change, make the change, re-snap after.

Thanks, VBScap. I used a program called Regshot. I will try ProcMon as you suggest and will see whether it helps. Anyone else has got the same problem or know how to get rid of the welcome screen when open Adobe InDesign CS3???
