Deploying Command Line (silent) installs
I'm currently deploying applications like Adobe CS4 using the CLI. So for CS4 I'm using the AdobeUberInstaller.exe fired from a command prompt. Does anyone deploy this from SCCM 2012 and if so how do they go about it? Add it as a package or an application? I find this is the most confusing part of SCCM. Also I would love to deploy SolidWOrks 2013, has anyone done this via SCCM 2012 too?
Thanks for your help

We tried for weeks to get it to work with SCCM 2012 - we ended up moving down to MDT.
One thing that I'd like to just say is to remember to change the install path in the AdobeUberInstaller.xml file, if you move the installation files to another location.

Csnt you downlosd Adobe s enterprise deployment tool for cs4 and create a msi deployment? That should work.

Adobe's enterprise tool creates the AdobeUberInstaller.exe and AdobeUberInstaller.xml files - I wish that they would create a msi file...

There is one to do it. I did it with CS6, the name slips my mind. Anyways calling a .exe from SCCM is no trouble.

So with the AdobeUberInstaller.exe, just create a standard program package with the source files pointing to the CS4 setup files, then point to the exe in the command box?

Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition (AAMEE)? Unfortunately v3.x, only supports CS6 and v2.1 only supports CS 5.0/5.5.

I'm guessing you need a /S and /W or similar.
This may help.

Basicchannel - how did you get this to deploy through SCCM in the end then? Did you create a package with source files and then create a standard Program and simply run the Uberinstaller.exe from the directory containing the xml file?

Haven't tested yet but that's the idea. Going to run this today and let y'all know

Good luck! I've tried that plus running a batch file, tried creating a program with no source files and running the installer from an anonymous share. Tried all sorts of combinations - i cannot get this to work. I'd be delighted if you could get this to work and share the knowledge.

It probably won't work and I'll be resorting to GPO installation but you gotta have faith. Why oh why couldn't they make it easier for enterprise deployment?
