Deploying Exceptions using batch and script files

You can create batch and shell script files for simplifying the process of running the Exception Deployer during deployment. 

In general, the deployment process is as follows:

  1. (Windows only) Run the Exceptions Deployer in Pre mode to install Acrobat.
  2. (Windows and Mac OS) Install the Contents of the Build folder.
  3. (Windows and Mac OS) Run the Exceptions Deployer in Post mode to install other products and components that must be installed after the contents of the Build folder. 

Run the Exception Deployer in Pre mode (Acrobat for Windows)

  1. Create an empty text file named BeforeSetup.bat
  2. Copy and paste the following code into your blank text file:
PushD "%~dp0"
Set installdir=%~dp0
@echo off

Echo "Installing the Creative Cloud exceptions. Press any key to start the installation."
PAUSE
ExceptionDeployer --workflow=install --mode=pre --installLanguage=en_US
Echo "Finished installing the Creative Cloud exceptions. Press any key to finish."
PAUSE
  1. Save the file.
  2. Right-click the batch file and run it as Administrator.
  3. Run the contents of the Build folder.

Run the Exception Deployer in Post mode (Windows)

  1. Complete this procedure after the Build folder contents have been installed.
  2. Create an empty text file named AfterSetup.bat
  3. Copy and paste the following code into your blank text file:
PushD "%~dp0"
Set installdir=%~dp0
@echo off

Echo "Installing the Creative Cloud exceptions. Press any key to start the installation."
PAUSE
ExceptionDeployer --workflow=install --mode=post --installLanguage=en_US
Echo "Finished installing the Creative Cloud exceptions. Press any key to finish."
PAUSE
  1. Save the file.
  2. Right-click the batch file and run it as Administrator.

Run the Exception Deployer in Post mode (Mac OS)

  • Important: There are no exceptions on the Mac at this time.

#!/bin/sh

read -p "Press [Return] key to start the installation."
