Reccomendations for installing Adobe Creative Cloud Package during K2000 deployment?

I've been running in to a fair amount of trouble trying to import my powershell based installation of adobe CC and Acrobat to the K2000.

The adobe setup.exe will get to 100% and report that it's finished but just hang out there with the process open.

I've tried to call setup.exe directly via the K2000 but this fails as the process will falsely report that it needs to be ran with elevated rights.

I've tried a ton of trial and error with  powershell such as changing the way the process is called but i've not really had any success.

Can someone who's currently deploying adobe CCP packages via the K2000 provide me with an example of the process they are using?

My contingency plan is to call the script directly from the K1000 via runkbot (scriptID) 0 which seems to work without any of these issues.

I think i may have figured this out while waiting to hear back from Adobe Enterprise Support.

For some unknown reason, the Adobe setup package does not seem to like running within the built-in administrator profile and appears to hang on one it's post-install steps.

I was able to work around this by using psexec to force either the script or setup.exe to run in system context during the SDA deployment.

  • Considering that Microsoft doesn't recommend using the built-in administrator profile that kind of makes some sense. Best practice is to leave the administrator account disabled and create a separate local admin account. - chucksteel 1 year ago
