Thank's for your post.
Unfortunately does this command using SERIALNUMBER not work on Windows XP Clients.
Is there any alterantive for a silent installation so that the user later one does not need to enter ther serial number?
Sorry, I thought that item included the additional information you will find in this article.
You will see that the user does have to enter the serial number.
You may want to report this to bump the priority for fixing.
I found out a way how to run a silent installation of Adobe RoboHelp V7 with WinXP.
After installing the software manually a new file ist created in
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe PCD\cache called "cache.db".
If you compare this file before and after the input of the serialnumber you can assert that the serialnumber was inscribed into the cache.db. So by replacing the old file with the new file within the installation process solves the problem!
Cool. Thank you so much for posting that back. As well as the information being here, I will add it to my site.
I have learned that this approach could lead to serious problems.
I understand that the file contains machine specific information and there is potential that messing with it could stop all Adobe products on that PC from running with the only solution being a reformat!
