Good Day

 

I am in an environment that uses SCCM to deploy software. I need to automate the installation of InDesign CS6, but I am not getting pass the trial version screen. I need to install the software as trial version, once the user logs onto the machine they will register.

 

Also I need to skip all user interaction. I am using the Deployment install.xml file and it partially works.

see below.

 

can someone please assist or please give all the set-up.exe switches for automation.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<Deployment>
<Properties>
<!-- Set this to reflect desired install location. -->
<Property name="INSTALLDIR">C:\Program Files\Adobe</Property>
<Property name="EULA">-1</Property>
<!-- Set this to reflect desired install language. -->
<!-- Available languages: -->
<!-- en_GB -->
<!-- en_US -->
<!-- ja_JP -->
<Property name="installLanguage">en_US</Property>

<!-- To serialize the application during installation, uncomment this -->
<!-- property and replace the placeholder with your serial number. -->
<!-- <Property name="serialNumber">xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</Property> -->
</Properties>

<Payloads>
<!-- AdobeInDesign8AppBase-mul -->
<Payload adobeCode="{CFB770D7-8D43-1014-922B-CC2715FADE3F}">
<Action>install</Action>
</Payload>
<Data key="Trial">True</Data>
<Data key="EULA">-1</Data>
<Data key="Registration">Suppress</Data>
<Data key="Updates">Suppress</Data>
</Payloads>
</Deployment>

Hey guys, I kind of sorted it out. AAMEE did not help me. I had to use MSIX packaging tool from Microsoft to capture the system changes and now I can apply this "image" packaged software on any Windows 10 machine/

 

maybe this helps other people. I know it's a legacy issue, but we have departments in my company that uses old versions of software

CS6 is EOL. This probably means all the info on how to deploy it - which would once have documented all the switches etc  - has been removed.

Moving to the Enterprise forum where there MAY be someone who remembers how to package that old program
