How do I sysprep and image Adobe Creative Suite 3?
I just ordered a site license for Adobe Creative Suite 3: Master Collection.
Normally when I deploy software, I install everything on one system for that specific hardware build for say, a computer lab or a staff machine, and then I Sysprep the computer and image the system using Ghost.
I've tried doing this in the past with Photoshop CS and it works great. However, I've also tried it using the newer Adobe software which includes activation protection, such as Adobe Premiere 1.5, and it fails the activation after being imaged. I'll deploy the system, and it will come up with "Registration Invalid - Please Reinstall Premiere".
I'm just wondering what the best way is to image this software, or if there's no choice but to install it on all machines afterwords. I know it's possible because another tech in the district managed to image Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium, the only problem is he can't remember how he did it the first time, and now he gets the same errors with registration after imaging.
Anyways, just thought I'd ask in case anyone here has managed to "ghost" Creative Suite 3 Master Collection to a series of machines.
