Software Deployment Question
Error 1603 Installing Creative Cloud from Network Path
I used the same method as I am going to describe below to install CS6 but I cannot do this with Creative Cloud.
After I built a install Package for Adobe Creative cloud I copied it up to a network share that I use for several other remote installations including Adobe CS6. I use Dell KACE to distribute my software and due to the large size of Creative Cloud and Creative Suite before it I do not want to copy the large install files directly to the appliance.
The problem I am having is when I try to install from this network location just as I have with CS6 I get the following error:
Installation operation failed
Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: Adobe_CC_NoAcrobat. Product Version: 1.2.0000. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: Adobe Systems Incorporated. Installation success or error status: 1603.
Adobe_CC_NoAcrobat is what I named the package.
My install commands look like this:
start /wait \\SERVER\AdobeCC\Adobe_CC_NoAcrobat\Exceptions\ExceptionDeployer.exe --workflow=install --mode=pre
start /wait msiexec.exe /i "\\SERVER\AdobeCC\Adobe_CC_NoAcrobat\Build\Adobe_CC_NoAcrobat.msi" /qn /L*v c:\Adobe.log
start /wait \\SERVER\AdobeCC\Adobe_CC_NoAcrobat\Exceptions\ExceptionDeployer.exe --workflow=install --mode=post
I basicall put those commands into a BAT file and upload that to the KBOX
I added the Logging after it kept failing to see what was going on and I can paste the entire log file if need be but if I copy the folder with the package contents locally and run the same commands from the same elevated command prompt it installs fine. Error 1603 usually points to some access rights issue but for the life of me I cannot determine what the issue is. I have given full control to "Everyone", "SYSTEM" and all users to the network share and it is only the MSI that fails it seems.
