Note
Disable Norton Security prompt
The installer searches for certain antivirus products, and if a qualifying product is not found it prompts to install Norton Security. To suppress this prompt, add the following registry key before the installer is executed:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; 32-bit OS
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\N360]


; 64-bit OS [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\N360]

Note: The nis and nss registry values mentioned in other tips are not required.


Silent install from command line
ADE_4.5_Installer.exe /s
Silent uninstall from command line
"c:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Digital Editions 4.5\uninstall.exe" /s

1. Create a file named "adeupdaterconfig.cfg" in "c:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Digital Editions 4.5" with the following content:
{
"EnableAutoUpdate":"0"
}
2. Deploy the following registry entries:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Digital Editions 4.5]
"ConfigPath"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Adobe\\Adobe Digital Editions 4.5\\adeupdaterconfig.cfg"
"EnableAutoUpdate"="0"

The installer does only need a /s, but it will also try to install Norton by default. So we need to prevent that. 

Create a file named ade64.reg:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Symantec]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Symantec\NPInstaller]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Symantec\NPInstaller\DeclineCount]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Symantec\NPInstaller\DeclineCount\adobe]
"nss"=dword:00000002

Also make a 32-bit version named ade.reg: 

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\NPInstaller]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\NPInstaller\DeclineCount]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\NPInstaller\DeclineCount\adobe]
"nss"=dword:00000002

Then I use a batch file for deployment: 

@echo on
if %PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% == x86 set _arch=ade.reg
if %PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% == AMD64 set _arch=ade64.reg
echo arch is %_arch%

regedit /s "%~dp0%_arch%"
"%~dp0ADE_4.0_Installer.exe" /s
exit 0

  • Hi, this seems not working anymore with latest version (4.5). I still get a window popup asking me to include or not Norton Internet Security.
    • I noticed that if I ran through the installer and declined the Norton install, removed ADE and then installed it again I wasn't prompted for Norton, a quick check of the registry showed that the above key had been set during the first install so that when I installed the second time it didn't prompt for Norton.
      • I tried the same way. Install ADE 4.5, remove and reinstall but I am getting the Norton screen. And in ADE 4.5, the registry entry has ben changed to
        Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

        [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Symantec\NPInstaller\DeclineCount\adobeebook]
        "nis"=dword:00000002
        "nss"=dword:00000002
  • Just for those curious if you use 7-Zip 15.05 (nothing newer, older versions might also work) it is possible to open up the .exe file and then open up the NSIS file and see the line about the Norton install (well the .dll files that get called anyway) but I have not found anyway to edit this file (you can edit it using 7-Zip) and then save the edit file back into the .exe.

    I have tried a few different repackagers but none of them seem to deal with editing a file and putting it back in.

    "nss"=dword:00000002
    These values gets changed dynamically all the time when we install ADE. Not able to suppress. Anyhow converting to msi will help.
