I'm trying to create a completely unattended silent install of Photoshop 6.0 - I've managed to suppress all dialog boxes except for one that I just can't seem to get rid of. It's the one that asks me to "Select the file types you would like Photoshop(PS) or ImageReady(IR) to open and...(blah, blah, blah)". Does anyone know how to get rid of this? This is what I have so far:

[OEM Install]
DisplayWelcomeDlg=NO
DisplayEULA=NO
DisplayTypeOfInstallDlg=NO
DisplaySelectDestDirDlg=NO
DisplayCustomDlg=NO
DisplayUserInfoDlg=NO
DisplayConfirmRegDlg=NO
DisplayStartCopyDlg=NO
DisplayFinishDlg=NO
DisplayFinalMessage=NO
DisplayRebootDlg=NO
ProgGroupName=
DefaultDestDir=
UserName=XXXX
UserCompanyName=XXXX
UserSerialNumber=XXXX
DisplayBackGround=NO
DisplayProgressBar=YES
ProgressBarStart=
ProgressBarEnd=

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated...

Hi, I'm having the same probs here. Do u have a solution yet?
I also have a problem with starting Photoshop 6 as a locked down user:
"Cannot initialize Photoshop because the file is locked....."
It seems if I set full control permissinons on the C-drive it's ok. But that's not what I want ofcourse. Maybe you know a solution to this too?

Cheers, Henri (NL)

There is also some HKCU keys you will need to propagate.

with .msi's i find the easiest way to have a package run quietly is just through the command line.

for example

msiexec.exe /i photoshop.msi /QB

now i'm fairly inexperienced in packaging, and i'm just starting to get the hang of it, but usually i've just made a batch file to launch this command or use the command as the sms job.

Maybe i'm thinking a little too low level here, but i'm just throwing it out there.

The version 6 is too old and the security changed with Windows XP. Then when you are installing a program, the command line will work fine. However, you will need to run sysinternals regmon and filemon to see where are the access denied and create an inf to change the security. You will need to use the secedit command from MS to apply the inf.

All of our users are lockdown and we need to do that for every software. Many companies are creating a software in thinking every one have admin rights or every technicians will install the software by running manually a setup. It is not very serious from companies. Serious companies will think about that and let people install the software with a commandline and for recent software you should not need to change the security but for older software or less serious companies...

The worst software, I had to install was Kodak Easyshare, Powerquest Deploycenter, Palm Hotsync, Lotus Easy sync...
