Deploying Photoshop Elements 11

Deploying Photoshop Elements is different from the rest of the Adobe CS6 applications. The MSI file cannot be executed independently. The setup.exe file must be run. The setup.ini is the key to distributing the software in either a silent or basic display mode. Inside the ini file, the two parts that are pertinent to an unattended installation are [Launch] and [OEM]. Under [Launch] you can delete all of the CommandLines, except for CommandLine0. These command lines are there for installing different language packs, which you can only install one. I live in the US, so this is the command line I successfully used:

CommandLine0=msiexec /i "Adobe Photoshop Elements 11.msi" TRANSFORMS=1033.mst ELEMENTS_EN_US=1 ORGANIZER_EN_US=1 COUNTRY=244 AgreeToLicense=Yes /qb- /norestart

The second part to populate is the SERIALNUMBER under [OEM]. You will need to enter it with dashes.

The required items are the country, agreement to the license, serial number, and language. Once these are populated in the above listed items, the installation becomes unattended. Here is the full setup.ini file that I edited and has now made the setup.exe unattended.

 [Launch]

If you live in a different country, thereby needing a different country code, you can obtain it by opening up the Adobe Photoshop Elements 11.msi file in ORCA. The list of countries and associated country codes are under the ComboBox Table. There, you will see the list. The value you are looking for is in the Value (s64) column. For your convenience, here is a list of country codes I extracted from the MSI file:

  1. How are you deploying the software. I have tried a number of ways using SCCM and they all fail. I had no issues with version 10.

  2. I have a simple powershell script that executes setup.exe and then returns the error code back to SCCM when finished. I edited this blog and included the entire setup.ini file for your convenience.

  3. Thank you for posting the full ini file, the "EnableLangDlg=NO" line made ALL the difference for me. I had been trying to follow the steps from Adobe found at http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop-elements/kb/silent-install-instructions-photoshop-elements-1.html but no where on that page does it tell you to change that line. The simple change and my SCCM install works well.

    Thanks for the help.

  6. Sadly this does not work. It will start installation, carry on, even create some shortcuts, but without error it will fail and not install most of itself. And Organizer installation does not even start

  7. Have you tried installing elements using the setup.exe with the unmodified setup.ini file? Does it install that way?
