How to Disable Registration Reminders
In a similar vein as the last entry, here are some instructions for how to disable the launch of Adobe Application Manager at the second product launch when the user is requested to register the product.
It is possible to suppress registration via an override mechanism. The installer places a flag in a database on the users system. Any product which licenses reads this flag and determines whether or not to invoke AAM for registration.
Enterprise customers can suppress registration as part of the normal enterprise deployment toolkit (AAMEE) workflow. This toolkit should have a public, free release in early June along with documentation for how to suppress registration.
For any volume customers who are distributing prior to the upcoming release of AAMEE you can suppress registration in the following manner:
Create the override file with a Registration Suppress tag and pass it in the command line to the Bootstrapper (Set- up.exe or Install.app) via param overrideFile.
Set-up.exe –mode=silent –deploymentFile=”” –overrideFile=”” –installSourcePath=”” –action=””
Install.app/Contents/MacOS/Install –mode=silent –deploymentFile= –overrideFile= –installSourcePath= –action=””
Hopefully most people will be able to wait until early June with the first release of AAMEE so the above workaround is not necessary.
