Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition (AAMEE) 3.0 available 5/14/12

The latest and greatest and fastest and best looking version of  AAMEE is not in your hands…yet. That is right, the latest and greatest and fastest and best looking version of  AAMEE is the 3.0 release which is required to package CS6. The best way to get ahold of it right now is via a time machine. Please set the controls of your time machine for 5/14/12 which is the release date. Actually if you have a time machine, I suggest going further into the future where you can download AAMEE 3.1 which will undoubtedly be even better!

Okay, let’s think this through, if you have a time machine or if you are a time lord like Dr. Who, then is packaging up the Creative Suite for enterprise environments really a concern of yours?

If you do not have access to a time machine or the TARDIS (wasn’t it just a matter of time before we used this reference on this blog?) then hold tight. We will announce on this blog and on our @Adobe_ITToolkit Twitter account the links to the Adobe.com site locations where you can download AAMEE 3.0 and the new documentation. For those who have access to our Adobe Licensing Website (LWS is its own kind of time machine) then we will blog and tweet when AAMEE 3.0 is available on there. It might be different times or even dates when they are available as I am doing some significant clean up of the related docs and coordination of all these moving parts is like directing traffic at the airport. I don’t really know who I am in that metaphor. Probably the guy in the lost and found luggage department.

      We apologize about the week gap between the release/availability of CS6 and AAMEE 3.0. Our development cycle is tricky since AAMEE needs the final build of the CS installers and we use components like APTEE that are developed by a set of folks who can only begin once the CS6 licensing work is through. It is a crazy orchestrated set of interconnected deadlines and resources with quality being an extreme concern. Having said all that, sorry again for the delay!

    Is there a new version of Adobe Updater Server Setup Tool or does the current version handle updates for cs6 aswell ?

    • By Jody Rodgers - 10:35 AM on May 12, 2012   Reply

      The current Adobe Updater Server Setup Tool is intended to support the forthcoming CS6 updates.

    Please confirm if AUSST 2.0 is for CS6 updates? I already set this up previously but thought this was for CS5 & 5.5.

      Hi Tim,
      Yes, you can use AUSST 2.0 for setting up internal update server for CS6 updates also.

      thanks,

        Please let us know when the tech document is updated to reflect CS6 and provide a working URL to its location.

        Thank you

        Ps in it Exluded items folder ( think its called that) created by AAMEE there is a read me file. The URL in the read me doesn’t exist. Please sort it out by either reinstating the URL or redirect it.

    If AUSST 2.0 IS also used for cs6 then please can you get the tech notes updated again please! I fear it’s going to be another pain again with hundreds of blog posting just to get things working again rather than a support call!

    I think this blogging thing isn’t working and i hare this tweeting shite.

    It is very difficult to find the relevant information to just do my job. I think you should look at JAMF Nations community and follow that collaboration model.

    There are only a very limited number of options when using AAMEE 3.0. It does not allow you to configure the scratch disk location for example; if it did, Photoshop CS6 would work with “User” rights in Windows. The default location of the scratch disk is C: – where Users (i.e. non-admins) don’t have create permissions, this causes Photoshop to fail if running with User rights. The original version of AAMEE allowed the configuration of many options and preferences. Why are these configuration options missing in AAMEE 3.0?

      Hello. We actually haven’t supported the setting/packaging of preferences with AAMEE. However, this is a frequent request so we will continue to look at how that might be supported.

    As I recall, in the recent webinar it was said that we needed to uninstall older versions of AAMEE before installing version 3. On the Mac version, what do we toss? The OOBE folder at /Library/Application\ Support/Adobe/OOBE? And BTW…. we (me and other techs on campus) can not get the serialization script as posted in the Enterprise Deployment Guide pdf to work. Every time it returns that the AdobeSerialization can not be found.

      If you simply install AAMEE 3.0 it replaces/writes over AAMEE 2.x. Nothing needed to be done except run the quick installer. We should document this!

    Thanks, Jody, for the clarification on the AAMEE install. I will probably be emailing KG if my third round of tests goes like the first on the serialization file issue.
