Can Adobe CS4 Suite be deployed on Windows MultiPoint Server?

21 Sep

Yes it can!

When I first started playing around with Windows MultiPoint Server 2011, I attempted to install the Adobe CS4 Suite onto the server but it failed stating that the install will not work with this version of Windows (or something to that effect).

I thought I would have to give up my idea of using MPS but I stumbled across this solution which works great!

There is a control panel feature called “install application on remote desktop…” which is a wizard you follow. However there is a quicker command line method.

  1. Login to the server as administrator
  2. Open a DOS prompt (Start/run/cmd) and
  3. Type “change user /install”
  4. Install the software from the CD in the usual way

And there you have it. Works every time that I have tested it. Yay!

Additional note: if the install of Adobe CS4 fails with the program not responding, go into the control panel and turn off UAC, reboot and perform the steps again.
