    Cracked it!

    Finally, I seem to have achieved the holy grail of a working, customised CS3 deployment script. I've tried all sorts of things suggested both here and elsewhere, but nothing worked properly or as we need.

    Anyway, here's my "how-to".

    Here we go ....nothing ever goes as simple as you hope

    I get to this stage

    You can now check CS3 will install using these settings using the following command (all on one line!) from the Run box:\\servername\deploy\AdobeCS3\Setup.exe --mode=Silent --deploymentFile=\\servername\deploy\AdobeCS3\deploy ment\install.xml --skipProcessCheck=1
    Nothing will appear to happen because itís running silent. You can check that it is, however, by opening Task Manager and looking for active setup.exe and mesiexec.exe processes, as well as monitor that files are appearing (and in some cases, disappearing) in c:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\ and c:\Program Files\Adobe\. This install may take a little while (like, an hour, depending on your network, setup options, and machine). You may need to reboot afterwards before the CS3 apps will work.
    then I get a "End Adobe Setup. Exit Code 7"

    I have searched around the web and people refer to adding the --skipProcessCheck=1 which is already done. I am hoping someone else has had the same problem and found an answer.

    Not sure if the order of the commands makes a difference, but we use the following without any issues.

    Code:
    Setup.exe --mode=Silent --skipProcessCheck=1 --deploymentFile="\\Server\Deploy\Adobe CS3 Design Premium\deployment\install.xml"

    I have found the issue its failing the requirement check for each part of the software install

    The minimum system requirements listed below are needed in order to run Adobe Illustrator CS3 and are not met. - Windows XP Service Pack 2 and greater
    - Windows Vista
    I am installing on Windows 7 x86, so has anyone else had this issue and if so how did you get over it?

    Did you create the install.xml file using setup.exe --record=1?

    On our XP network, CS3 gets installed under the SYSTEM account before anyone logs in.

    Thanks again Arthur

    my two xml files are exactly the same as yours, I have even just tried yours just in case I missed something but no I get the same error.

    I have tried this

    "\\network location\AdobeCS3\setup.exe" --mode=Silent --deploymentFile="\\network location\AdobeCS3\deployment\install.xml" --skipProcessCheck=1
    and the way you suggested earlier, the machine is a fresh Windows 7 install. I must be missing something, I have noticed that if I change the --skipProcessCheck=1 to --skipProcessCheck=0 or --skipProcessChecks=1 I still get the same error which suggests that the --skipProcessCheck=1 is not being seen.

    Are you running Setup.exe from an elevated Command Prompt (assuming you have UAC switched on)?

    I think I might of cracked it.

    In .\payloads\AdobeIllustrator13en_US and .\payloads\AdobePhotoshop10en_US there are xml files with proxy in the name. At the bottom of each file is a <SystemRequirementJSON> section which refers to Windows XP, Windows Vista and a couple of others, but it doesn't include Windows 7, I deleted the entire <SystemRequirementJSON> from both xml files.

    It has gone far further than I have got before so I am hoping this is the solution. It will take bout an hour so I will post back later.


    I can confirm that it has installed and it is so fast to install.
