By default, a silent installation installs all components of Creative Suite 4 product in the default location. The interface settings will be the defaults. So, when the first Creative Suite application is launched, the user will be prompted to supply a serial number, accept the End-User License Agreement (EULA) and enter registration information. Also, the Adobe Update Manager will automatically check for available updates.
Creative Suite 4 uses XML files to configure these behaviors: application.xml.override, install.xml and uninstall.xml. For complete details on how to configure these files, see the white paper listed below in "Complete deployment information."
This file configures the interface elements that appear during the first launch of a Creative Suite 4 application. You will need to create this file and place it in the main 'driver' payload folder.
- install.xml and uninstall.xml
These files control which components of Creative Suite are installed and uninstalled, respectively. You can modify these file to remove individual component 'payloads'. The same modifications need to be made to both files. These XML files do not require a specific name to be used during deployment.
Launching the Adobe Creative Suite 4 product with the option --record=1 will assist you in creating the install and uninstall XML files. The application.xml.override file must be created manually unless the CSDT is used to create your package.
