Adobe CS5

From WPKG | Open Source Software Deployment and Distribution

This is a silent installer and uninstaller for products within the Adobe CS5 suite and the suite itself.

You need to grab a copy of the Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition for CS5. It's currently available here: [1].

The Deployment Guide is also available from the same location.

Install the AAMEE application, launch it and feed it the info it requires. This will include your serial number, installation media location, output folder and options on which 'features' you wish to suppress including auto-updates etc.

The application will create a folder in your specified location containing an msi file and a couple of subfolders. You must copy all of these into your software deployment location.

Adobe CS5 Design Standard

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
	<package id="CS5" name="Adobe CS5 Design Standard"  revision="500"  reboot="false"  priority="100">		
                <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Standard" />
		<install cmd='msiexec /i "%software%\CS5\Build\CS5.msi" /quiet' />
		<upgrade cmd='msiexec /i "%software%\CS5\Build\CS5.msi" /quiet' />
		<remove cmd='msiexec /x "%software%\CS5\Build\CS5.msi" /quiet' />

You may also consider using the Adobe Update Server, in which case I suggest you create an xml file called AdobeUpdater.Overrides as per the guide and have WPKG copy it to \Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\AAMUpdater\1.0\ or \ProgramData\Adobe\AAMUpdater\1.0\ for Windows Vista/7. I would suggest creating the directory structure yourself as these folders won't exist on your PC - so create AAMUpdater->1.0 and put the AdobeUpdater.Overrides in it.

Copy it by adding the following install & upgrade commands.

   <install cmd='cmd /C xcopy /Y /E "%software%\CS5\AAMUpdater" "c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\AAMUpdater\"' />

Photoshop deployment. The syntax is exactly the same for Illustrator and I'm guessing the rest of the individual components of the suite.

Adobe Photoshop CS5

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
	<package id="photoshop" name="Adobe Photoshop" revision="120" reboot="false" priority="10">
		<check type="file" condition="versiongreaterorequal" path="%programfiles%\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Photoshop.exe" value="12.0" />
		<install cmd='msiexec /i "%software%\Photoshop\Build\Adobe Photoshop CS5.msi" /quiet' />
		<upgrade cmd='msiexec /i "%software%\Photoshop\Build\Adobe Photoshop CS5.msi" /quiet' />
		<remove cmd='msiexec /x "%software%\Photoshop\Build\Adobe Photoshop CS5.msi" /quiet' />
