Does anyone have any advice for an Adobe CS5 deployment on the K1000?  I haven't had much luck getting the suite to work on the Kace.  I'm trying to make it available to users in the software library.

I used AAMEE to create a customized version of the installer (Web Premium) with our license key built-in.  Originally, I tried zipping up the directory and uploading that to the KACE, but apparently there is a 2 GB limitation (and the installer is 3.3 GB).  So, I wrote a quick batch file calling the installer from a network share, as follows:

msiexec /i "\\server_name\share\Web Premium CS5\Build\Web Premium CS5.msi"

If I run this batch script, it starts the installer and installs perfectly.  If I upload the bat file to the KACE, though, and try to install it from the software library, it will flash what looks like the installation for a split second, but never actually installs.

Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?

I'm pretty sure it's a credential issue. Either create a script to run as "domain user w/ rights to the share", or use the net use command.

  • I'll bet you're right! The KACE account wouldn't have access to the network share, but the user that is logged on would. That explains why the KACE agent can't run the installer, but the user can run the batch script without a problem. I'll give your advice a try. Thanks!
