Time machine with Monterey and pre installed creative cloud apps

Hi we have a lab we are building with new M1 iMacs on Monterey and  we don't have a mdm so we want to use the migration assistant with Time machine but we want to pre install all the creative cloud apps we plan to use.

I'm worried we might be running into some crashing or errors with apps if we do this. It uses to be fine with carbon cloner in the past with the intel macs but now that won't work since it doesn't restore the system partition. 

has anyone tried this and ran into problems?

 

As of right now my plans are just to put the installer on the desktop and install it after the time machine restore what time machine.  If it works fine with it preinstalled it would save us a lot of time.

many people have problems using time machine.  i can't even determine if it rarely works or rarely fails, but we see a lot of people posting about problems after using any kind of migration tool.

 

ideally, i have them:

 

on the new computer:

reset to factory or, at least, prior to migration.  if that can't be done, reformat the hard drive, reinstall the os, then proceded:

 

 

on the old computer:
uninstall every cc app including preferences, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-remove-app.html


then uninstall the cc desktop app, using the correct uninstaller, https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-creative-cloud-desktop-app.html#sa_src=web-mes...


clean your computer of cc files per http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html

 

then migrate old to new

 

install the cc desktop app on the new

 

use the cc desktop app to install the cc programs.
