    Installing Adobe CS3 via SCCM 2012 - Fail.

    Hia chaps,

    Hit an issue, when installing Adobe CS3 suite via SCCM2012 it fails then installing.

    If I install it via my setup.cmd file then it funs fine after I have clicked "Reinstall using correct settings"

    Has anyone here hit this issue too and do you know of a solution by any chance?


    I am running it as a Package and set the command line to run the cmd file named setup.

    the contents of this file is below.

    Code:
    setup.exe --mode=Silent --deploymentFile="deployment\install.xml" --skipProcessCheck=1
    Any idea @Oaktech

    What error is returned by Software Center when you attempt installation via SCCM?

    Just the normal Error code 7 which is also the same as 6 which means its just stopped. Not very helpful I know, thanks Adobe.

    I seem to remember having to specify the full UNC path to the install.xml file when I originally deployed CS3.

    Is there any particular reason you're running it as a package rather than an application? Running is as an app is generally a lot more reliable.

    Yes becouse it does not have an MSI to directly run it and you need to tell it via command switchs to install silently, skip the validation, and locate the instal.xml

    If I run the Setup.cmd it runs fine with no issues at all. Its just SCCM 2012.

    You don't need an MSI to install something as an application. You need to specify the application information manually instead. You can use all the necessary command switches in the application deployment command line.

    To create an app, open the Create Application Wizard , choose Manually specify...." and press Next. Give the app a name and fill out the other parts of the form. If you use the application catalog, fill out the information in there as well, press Next. On the Deployment types screen, press the Add button. Change the type to Script Installer and press Next. Give the deployment a name and press Next. Tell it where the server share that hosts your CS install is in the content location box and put in the name of the installer along with the necessary switches in the Installation program box. Fill in the uninstall program box if you can work out what to put. Press Next. You will need to add a detection clause, probably the easiest way is to use a file system one. Have it look for the photoshop.exe in the appropriate place and press Next. Change the Installation Behaviour to "Install for System" and Logon Requirement to "Whether or not...". Press Next. Press Next on the requirements screen and on the dependencies screen. Press Next again then Close. You'll be taken back to the Create Application wizard, press Next and Next again. The application will be created, you then distribute it and deploy it as you normally would.

    Installing Adobe CS3 via SCCM 2012 - Fail.

    Interested to hear your outcome, as Adobe Web Standard CS3 is failing here via MDT as we're trying to role out 8.1. Given up on the package for the time being... Was fine on 7.

    This post from @edie209 looks like it might be the solution to your problems.

    At the bottom of each of the xml files below (assuming you have the Design Premium edition), you will find a list of system requirements in <SystemRequirementsJSON> ... </SystemRequirementsJSON>. Remove this part, save and then deploy once all of the files have been modified.

    Code:
    \\SERVERNAME\sccmapps$\AdobeCS3\payloads\
    
        AdobeDesignSuitePremiumen_US_Volume\ AdobeDesignSuitePremiumen_US_Volume.proxy.xml
        AdobeDreamweaver9en_US\ AdobeDreamweaver9en_US.proxy.xml
        AdobeIllustrator13en_US\ AdobeIllustrator13en_US.proxy.xml
        AdobeInDesign5en_US\ AdobeInDesign5en_US.proxy.xml
        AdobePhotoshop10en_US\ AdobePhotoshop10en_US.proxy.xml
        AdobeVersionCue3All\ AdobeVersionCue3All.proxy.xml
    Because CS3 was released in 2007, neither Windows 7 or 8.1 are supported OSs when installing CS3 silently.

    Code:
    <SystemRequirementsJSON>[
    {
        "OS": {
            "Windows": {
                "XP": {
                    "Require": {
                        "@lowerBound": 1,

                        "@servicePack64Bit": 1,
                        "Need64Bit": "0"
                    },
                    "Exclude": {
                        "@upperBound": 1,
                        "MaxServicePack": "1",
                        "@servicePack64Bit": "0"
                    }
                },
                "Server2003": {
                    "Require": {
                        "@lowerBound": 1,
                        "MinServicePack": "0"
                    }
                },
                "Vista": {
                    "Require": true
                }
            }
        },
        "Memory": {
            "System": {
                "Default": {
                    "Require": "1024",
                    "Exclude": "511"
                }
            }
        },
        "Display": {
            "Default": {
                "Require": {
                    "Width": "1024",
                    "Height": "768"
                },
                "Exclude": {
                    "Width": "799",
                    "Height": "599"
                }
            }
        }
    }
    ]</SystemRequirementsJSON>

    I've got Photoshop cs3 deploying as an application in sccm 2012. I'll post my command line. I knew it took a while to get it working.
