I was able to grey out the adobe photoshop updates in help menu. using the preferences file under
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\AAMUpdaterInventory\1.0\
But the adobe bridge which is present with in photoshop, "Help"->"update" option is not greyed out and thows error "unable to update, you do not have internet connection or you are not an system administrator". Same is the case with AAMEE configuration.
But if I delete this preference file, then I can launch it. Here my requirement is to grey our the update option both in photoshop and bridge as this will be deployed enterprise wide. Help me out how I can do this?
"<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?><Preferences><Suppressed>1</Suppressed></Preferences>
OS: windows 7
Thanks for your help
. But I followed this kb article and was able to manage updates in photoshopCS6 but this modification didn't make any change to the AdobebridgeCS6 and it throws error.
"unable to update, you do not have internet connection or you are not an system administrator".
Is this knowerror or bug? I have read this modification will not grey out update in bridge, but do not have any official announcement on this.
Disable Adobe Updater (AUM): Select this option in the configuration screen if you wish to suppress update announcements for all products.
As given in the PDF I had attached in your other post, you can download AAMEE to manage enterprise-wide configuration changes.
Is there a charge for the Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition?
The Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition is a complimentary tool for volume licensing customers and can be downloaded from the Adobe Licensing Website as part of the CS6 downloads or one of the following sites for IT administrators:
The AAMEE will help you with ALL you need to get your enterprise setup done the way you want it.
Just in case you missed out on the PDF in the other post I attached it to, here it is again.
Even with the AAMEE I get the same error for the bridge which is there in photoshop suit cs6, but the updates in photoshop(32,64 bit ) got greyed out. I can make out what you are trying to say but that doesnt yield result for bridge which is in photoshopcs6.
Even AAMEE didn't solve my problem. I think this is the bug with in application when used AAMEE
See if this helps (as taken from Adobe helpx http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/disable-update-manager-admini strators-cs3.html. Looks like CS3 & CS4, I know. But worth giving a shot:
Also, try one or both of these:
HKLM\Software\Adobe\Updater - Create a DWORD named 'Enterprise' with value '1'.HKCU\Software\Adobe\Updater - Create a DWORD named 'Enterprise' with value '1'.
HKLM - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
HKCU - HKEY_CURRENT_USER
(I'm sure you're aware of this, but for other users who visit this thread for similar issue - this will help!)
Let us know how it goes.
