Dear all,

I am looking for a silent install for Adobe DreamWeaver CS5. In the past I was able to package and install DreamWeaver CS4 ok, but adding updates then always needed a new package.

Is there a way to have the installation go Silent with the folder structure still intact, so adding updates later is no hassle?

Kind regards,

This will show you how to create a deployment folder: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/842/cpsid_84211.html#Create

And as nothing seems to have really changed in the deployment method of CS5, I guess the same goes for updates:
How to include product updates
Existing product updates can be included as part of the initial product deployment. To include product updates, use the following steps:

1.Download the applicable updates from Adobe.com.
2.Expand (.zip) or mount (.dmg) the product update downloads.
3.Locate the update's Payloads folder (if it exists) and move it's contents into the Payloads folder of the single installer source you built per the instructions above.
4.Locate the update's Extensions folder and move it's contents into the Extensions folder of the single installer source you built per the instructions above.
5.Deploy per the instructions above.
Note: If the update you have downloaded does not have an Extensions folder, it cannot be installed as part of this deployment method.

I am having difficulty finding the "install.xml" file on any of my media. Do you know where I can find this or a proper template for it? I have setup the entire package but it errors on the install.xml I thought was correct

It's usually in a subfolder of the one setup.exe is in. Try looking for something called Deployment_Files, Installation or Setup... Not sure what it was called.
And I think the file could also be called setup.xml

If you really can't locate it, just generate one yourself with setup.exe --record=1

I have a problem with CS5.5 version. Command is Set-up.exe --mode=silent --deploymentFile="depl.xml", depl.xml contains serial number as well. It gives error code 16 which means: "The directory cannot be removed." What does this really means? Need help fast! :)

If I'm not mistaken what it really means is that the setup cannot find the settings XML file. Try adding the complete path to the depl.xml in the --deploymentFile property.

Is this proper install.xml file? Problem is, that with --record=1 there is no install.xml created, and I copied this content from deployment.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Deployment>
<Properties>
<Property name="serialNumber">XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX</Property>

<Property name="INSTALLDIR">[AdobeProgramFiles]</Property>
<Property name="installLanguage">en_US</Property>
</Properties>
<Payloads>
<Payload adobeCode="{0215A652-E081-4B09-9333-DC85AAB67FFA}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
</Payloads>
</Deployment>

Do you mean mine .xml file? Hmm, now I can manage to install it locally using command promt and entering the same line, goes fine, but via SCCM program line it gives error exit code 1.

Hahaa, forget about jerking off with answering files and inventing silent commands. Use http://www.adobe.com/devnet/creativesuite/enterprisedeployment.html to build single msi file. It´s easy next next next setup and you are done! Cheers!
