How to suppress the EULA window in Adobe Photoshop Elements 10.0

05/30/2012 8620 views

I have packaged an application "Adobe Photoshop Elements 10.0". It installs a shortcut namely, Photoshop Elements Organizer whcih points to PhotoshopElementsOrganizer.exe which is present in the INSTALLDIR. The problem that I am facing is that when I launch the shortcut the following window pops up (refer screenshot below). I need to suppress this particular window. Already tried PictureTaker to check the registry and file changes but in vain. If someone can help me out with this. Even setting the property acceptedeula=1 does not help.

You need to create an application.xml.override file See Adobe KB for more details and command lines


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
 <Data key="EULA">Suppress</Data>
 <Data key="Registration">Suppress</Data>
 <Data key="Updates">Suppress</Data>

  • I have already done this, but screen is coming after I launch Photoshop Element Orgnizer exe. where as application.xml.override file is for Photoshop elements 10.exe. therefore I am not sure, the same file would work for Orgnizer.exe as well.
  • Include the "cache.db" created in "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe PCD\cache" after accepting EULA

Package the software using Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition. This tool is specifically designed for creating enterprise deployment packages. It gives you the options to suppress the EULA, automatic updates, etc.

  • AAMEE doesn't apply for the Elements applications. This is still the case for v11 and most of the literature online for v8 onwards is still applicable
  • Include "cache.db" at "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe PCD\cache" created after accepting EULA
