Adobe CS6 on an Image?
Do you have to do anything to get the Adobe CS6 to work when on an image. I have just deployed a new image and its complaining about licencing. Good job i tested the image before deployment!

We have just bought into the Adobe Cloud Licensing, and the engineer I spoke to said not to put the software onto a clone image as it breaks the license. Best way is to deploy it through Active Directory. So I am looking into that, BUT Acrobat Pro doesn't have a MSI as it is classed as an exception. AND you need to have another package on there for Acrobat Pro to license properly.

I have MSI packages and deploy them via SCCM. But they take an age to install. Thats why they have gone onto the image.

A bit off topic but this fixes the problem when recovering a mac using time machine and you had adobe installed.
In terminal paste this
if [ "$(grep -o activate.adobe.com /etc/hosts)" = "activate.adobe.com" ];
then echo "/etc/hosts is already modified"
echo "127.0.0.1 activate.adobe.com" >> /etc/hosts
echo "/etc/hosts was successfully modified"
sudo rm -rf "/Library/Application Support/adobe/adobe PCD/cache/cache.db"
sudo rm -rf "/Library/Preferences/FLEXnet Publisher"
say "Now, please wait for the download to finish."
curl -o LicenseRecovery111.dmg http://download.macromedia.com/pub/s...ecovery111.dmg
sudo hdiutil attach LicenseRecovery111.dmg
sudo python '/Volumes/LicenseRecovery 11.6.1/LicenseRecovery/'LicenseRecover.py
sudo rm -rf ~/AdobeLicensingFilesBackup
sudo hdiutil detach "/Volumes/LicenseRecovery 11.6.1"
sudo rm LicenseRecovery111.dmg
say "Done! now start CS4 and enter your serial"
there might be a way to this on windows?

We've got CS6 installed on an image and sysprep does de-activate it, so you have to use the Adobe Application Manager Enterprise to reactivate it.
First you need to get AAME and generate your serialization file:
Now that that is done, you need to run this command once on each machine after it's imaged. (We used Impero, but I don't see why you couldn't make it a logon script, or a firstrun command in sysprep answerfile)
(obviously just change the path as needed to point at the exe)
This is the official Adobe documentation on it:
AAMEE 3.0 for CS6 available now! Removes puffer fishes!

Fixed it, change the permissions on this folder so all users have read and write permissions
