I’ve been fighting geting Adobe Creative Cloud to install properly from a LiteTouch deployment share. In my troubleshooting, I was always able to install the exceptions just fine, but the MSI package created by Adobe’s Creative Cloud Packager would not run successfully from a network share. When I tried to log what was happening, I kept getting a 1603 error in the InstallFinalize step along the lines of the following:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
In my experience, error 1603 usually means some sort of file access issue (either it is missing or you don’t have permissions to access it). What was confusing was that when I ran the deployment from a local drive it was always successful. After searching forums and Google for many hours I decided to come up with my own workaround. I zipped up the “Build” folder in my created package, and then wrote a batch script to extract the Build folder to a temporary directory and then install from there. This method has worked every time. The only downside is that it is a bit slower than the method that should work (and used to when I created an Adobe CC package around the same time last year).
If you’d like to recreate my resolution: 1. Download 7-zip and extract 7z.exe and 7z.dll from the installer. 2. Copy these files to your Adobe CC package folder (same one that has packagename.ccp). 3. Create a ZIP file of your Build folder in your Adobe CC package folder. Mine is just Build.zip. 4. In your silent install script, just extract the Build.zip file to a temporary folder and install the MSI package from there.
You can use my own silent installation script to see how this is all done.
