Here are some more functions for setup.ini:
DISABLEEMSFEATURES=0
The DISABLEEMSFEATURES option is used to disable the Photoshop.com membership features. Enter a value of 1 (DISABLEEMSFEATURES=1) to turn off the Photoshop.com membership features.

DISABLEOLSFEATURES=0
The DISABLEOLSFEATURES option is used to disable the retail online services and to display available educational online services. Enter a value of 1 (DISABLEOLSFEATURES=1) to disable retail online services and to display available educational online services.

REBOOT=NO (says it all)

had to edit the 1033.mst file to remove the desktop icon.

It seems that Adobe Photoshop elements figgures out by itself that the application is opened in user mode, and the check for updates is disabled.

If you don't want the desktop shortcut add this to the command line:
NODESKTOPICON=1

If you want to move the shortcut on the start menu, add this to the command line:
SHORTCUTLOCATION=Adobe Photoshop Elements
to put it in Start menu\Programs\Adobe Photoshop Elements

You must add that to the uninstall command also to delete the shortcut.

You can also change the properties in the mst file for your language instead.

try copying the ols_config.xml file from the your installer disk into the below location:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Elements Organizer 8.0\Assets folder.

problem2:
---------

Disable Adobe Partner services and when shortcut is launched organizer elements organizer dialog pops up.The following files needs to be at this location


%appdata%\Adobe\Online Services\Photoshop Elements 8.0.0\clients\Photoshop Elements

files need to add: notifications.dat and preferences.dat

%appdata%\Adobe\Online Services\Photoshop Elements 8.0.0\cache

problem3:
---------

The Adobe Photo Downloader is installed by default, and has an icon which appears in the system tray. Basically, all this application does is takes over the import of graphics files to your computer, whether Elements is running or not.

To disable the Adobe Photo Downloader, set the following registry key value:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Elements Organizer\8.0\Organizer

"AutoLaunchOnDeviceConnect"=dword00000001
