I have created the Adobe CS6 Web and Design Premium package using AAMEE 3.0. I have chosen to exclude adobe air and help. Exception folders have Adobe AIR Installer , Adobe Dreamweaver Widget browser and Adobe Help. ExceptionInfo.txt provides the list of commands to install the exceptions. While running the commands from the text file, Adobe AIR and Adobe Help works fine but Dreamweaver widget prompts for proxy authentication inspite of -slient parameter.
I am using the below command from ExceptionInfo.txt to install Widget Browser
Adobe AIR Installer.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe AIR Installer -silent -eulaAccepted -programMenu WidgetBrowser.air
Does this a common issue or do I need to change something in the command line?
Yes this is expected behaviour and is one of he reasons we advise disabling these components in the main package if you have a proxy server. The components by default look to connect to the Internet there is no way to tell them not to. If you wish to install them then you will need to enter the proxy formation. This is something we are looking a providing a solution to but nothing exists at the moment.

I haven't had the opportunity to confirm this with CS6 recently, but depending on the callback the air application makes, I have seen examples where using the -revocationCheck never command line flag could potentially make a difference. It would be interesting to see if it does under these specific circumstances with the widgetbrowser.
See http://blogs.adobe.com/simplicity/2011/08/disabling-air-certificate-re vocation-checks-during-silent-install.html and http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/creative-suite-deployment-pro xy-log.html for some background.
Thanks for your reply.
I have tried using the "-revocationCheck never", but still it prompts for proxy authentication while installing .air applications. This prompts while installing AdobeHelp.air and WidgetBrowser.air from Exceptions folder. Is there any way to handle deployment of AIR applications? If its expected behaviour, how do all the enterprise environment handle bulk deployment through tools like Casper, LANRev etc?
