Deployment Tips (2)

Most Common Setup Type

Rated 3 / 5 (Average) based on 2 ratings
Most Commonly Reported Deployment Method
Windows Installer with Custom Transform (MST)

As built, the "Build" folder MSIs created by Creative Cloud Packager clobber the SCCM 2012 R2 client.  If installing the app from Software Center, Software Center exits at the end of the installation.  When installing as part of an OSD Task Sequence, the task sequence hangs forever on the installation step.

I tracked the problem down to MSIEXEC's Restart Manager which exits and restarts processes using files the installer needs to touch.  Restart Manager was shutting down the SCCM client and when it restarted, SCCM didn't know what to do.

The solution to this problem is to suppress reboots using


 as part of the command line calling MSIEXEC and to also pass along the property


 which disables Restart Manager.  Once I did this, the MSI installed without trouble and SCCM worked correctly.  Software Center didn't crash and my task sequences moved on.

We can use properties to set Adobe Acrobat not to take ownership of the default PDF file extension, by leaving Adobe Reader as the default PDF reader.

For version 10.0 & higher use the property LEAVE_PDFOWNERSHIP=YES

YES - prevents the new installation from taking over PDF ownership. 
NO - allows the new install to own opening PDFs. 

For version 11.0 & higher use the property OWNERSHIP_STATE=0.

0: Do not take ownership.
1: Take ownership for the current user. 
2: Take ownership for all existing and new users.
