Acrobat 8 std - silent install - E-license

03/13/2007 20725 views
I remotely do a silent install to my non-admin users... Everything looks ok, the program installs using a .mst-file..

How can I disable this "download e-license" when users starts the program?

I'm having the same issue, but with Pro. I'm trying to do an enterprise deployment. I got access to adobe licensing site, where they gave me a serial number and I downloaded the media, but the serial key doestn work. I tricked the MSI into trial mode and got Adobe to install, but it asks to activate over the net. We cant allow that due to security policy so I had to activate by phone. I was able to activate on one computer but each other computer requires a unique activation code. any one know how to incorporate licensing into the package? where does adobe store the license info once a machine has been activated?

Hey, I've packaged this app (std) few days ago...
have you seen this? http://blogs.adobe.com/acrolaw/2007/01/enterprise_depl_1.html
following those instructions you can disable all register and e-license, even getting started screens,
ask here for any doubt

Hope it helps

Why not just execute the EXE and when the first dialog popups copy the files from the %temp% folder?

Yes thats true, But I want to run the exe silently and thats not happening is there any specific switch for extracting the exe silently... also the MSI and MST contents are not getting installed silently using the -i silent switch nor /qn switch of the installer. please advise.

Use the msi for deployment. Create an MST using the Adobe 8 Customization wizard. It can be downloaded here: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=3564

You will be able to perform a completely silent install as well as disabling all registration and activation.
