Follow these instructions to silently install Adobe Premiere Elements 8 on Windows with an Adobe volume license (AVL).
Some of these procedures require you to locate hidden files and hidden folders or to locate files by their full filenames, including extensions (for example, sample_filename.ini). By default, Windows Explorer does not show hidden files, hidden folders, and filename extensions that it recognizes.
See the following documents for details:
Enter a value of 0 (INSTALLTEMPLATES=0) to prevent the additional Movie themes, DVD, and Title templates from being installed with the Adobe Premiere Elements installer.
Note: If the 'Templates' folder is not present in the Adobe Premiere Elements folder copied in Step 1, you must enter a value of 0.
The DISABLEEMSFEATURES option is used to disable the Photoshop.com membership features. Enter a value of 1 (DISABLEEMSFEATURES=1) to turn off the Photoshop.com membership features.
DISABLEOLSFEATURES=0 The DISABLEOLSFEATURES option is used to disable the retail online services and to display available educational online services. Enter a value of 1 (DISABLEOLSFEATURES=1) to disable retail online services and to display available educational online services.
Save the Abcpy.ini file and close Notepad.
<Path to OEM.exe> /UL#### /V"SERIALNUMBER=<AOO-volume-license-serial-number>"Replace <Path to OEM.exe> with the location of the OEM.exe in the Adobe Premiere Elements folder copied from installation DVD in Step 1.
Replace the #### symbols with the appropriate four-digit language code:
Brazilian Portuguese= 1046
Chinese Simplified= 2052
Replace <AOO-volume-license-serial-number> with your 24-digit volume license serial number.
Note: Be sure to include the dashes in the serial number.
Note: On Windows 7/Vista, a User Access Control (UAC) prompt sometimes appears when the installer starts, if UAC is enabled. To prevent the User Access Control prompt, disable UAC.
To verify the installation after the installation process finishes:
Verify that the following folders were added:
- C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Elements 8.0
- C:\Program Files\Adobe\Elements Organizer 8.0
- The EULADelay Data key is required for every silent installation.
- The Registration Data key is optional. If you use it, the registration dialog does not appear when Adobe Premiere Elements is started and the Help > Registration option is dimmed or disabled.
- The Updates Data key is optional. If you use it, Adobe Premiere Elements does not check for updates and the Help > Updates option does not appear.
