I haven`t been able to deploy this with this info provided by Adobe...there is no such file with version 6.5, are we suppose to create it ourselves, i`m not sure but this might be a good starting point.

Customize uninstall and install files

For silent installations where there is no user intervention required during the installation process, you must configure the AdobeContribute5- mul.install.xml file. Similarly, to silently uninstall Contribute, you must configure the AdobeContribute5-mul.remove.xml file.

Specify the serial number and location for installation in the files as follows.

• <Property name="serialNumber">xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</Property>

• <Property name="INSTALLDIR">Drive:\Program Files\Adobe\</Property>

I haven`t been able to deploy this with this info provided by Adobe...there is no such file with version 6.5, are we suppose to create it ourselves, i`m not sure but this might be a good starting point.

Do one of the following:

• To install Contribute by bringing up the interface for installation on the users’ computers, click Browse, navigate to the installation folder, and select setup.exe.

• To display the interface for installation on the users’ computers without their intervention, enter the following 

in the command line field : Setup.exe --mode=silent --deploymentFile=AdobeContribute5- mul.install.xml

Note: Ensure that the Setup.exe and the AdobeContribute5- mul.install.xml file are in the same directory.

In the Environment tab, uncheck User Input Required, and select Run with Administrative Rights.

Below is the full example "deploy.xml" for Adobe Contribute 6.5.

I was able to retrieve this from %TEMP% during a normal Adobe Contribute 6.5 setup (look for "%TEMP%\{some_guid}\deploy.xml", where {some_guid} is a GUID generated by  the Adobe Contribute 6.5 installer.  It may be a static GUID but I didn't test enough times to confirm.

 

<Deployment>
	<Properties>
		<Property name="INSTALLDIR">C:\Program Files\Adobe</Property>
		<Property name="installLanguage">en_US</Property>
		<Property name="installSourcePath">C:\Temp\AdobeContribute\Contribute_6_5_LS12\Adobe Contribute 6.5</Property>
		<Property name="serialNumber">978786164527051177726458</Property>
	</Properties>
	<Payloads>
		<!-- Adobe Contribute 6.5 -->
		<Payload adobeCode="{6D3E37EA-1789-4020-BBDC-CA116B8D6A96}">
			<Action>install</Action>
		</Payload>
		<!-- AdobeContribute6-PDistiller9-en_US -->
		<Payload adobeCode="{AC76D478-1033-0000-3478-000000000004}">
			<Action>install</Action>
		</Payload>
	</Payloads>
</Deployment>
