my last attempt to install adobe photoshop elements 9
Okay so i have done Extensive research on the topic of installing PS9 using our k1000 box. I have tried the MSI method both the one in the original software folder and also one created with Adobe Application Mgmt Ent. (Which i think produces a msi that is crippled). TRANSFORM file, extra command line switches and watch services/ standalone etc.. and Also tried using the setup.exe method outlines by Adobe themselves here:
I have uploaded the MSI to kace and tried to execute it from there and failed, i have put both the original ps9 software up on a server and used Kace cmd line to run it. Also used .bat files to map network drive and install the msi. and or the setup.exe file with the override.xml. I have tried so many things that i dont know how to tackle this now. All i know is if i cant do this i am just going to forget about it. i think ive wasted nearly 3 weeks on and off. Has anyone actually developed a tried and true method of accomplishing this. As of now i just want PS9 installed i dont care about the the adobe extender etc.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus or someone who figured out Adobe Photoshop 9 here's how:
Zip the photoshop files making sure to strip out the unwanted parts (remember it has to be under 2gb for it to upload to the kace appliance via the web interface). I flattened my out so the msi and the setup.exe was all in the root of the zip file.
Step 1) Curse Adobe and sacrifice network card to the packaging gods
Step 2) In Kace Distribution-> set the following properties
installation: Configure manually
Installation Command: Setup.exe /UL1033 /V"SERIALNUMBER=product key
check off Don't Prepend msiexec.exe
That should do it, see the attached picture for more information. Let me know if you have any questions or problems.
