Auto-install Adobe CC 2021

New Contributor II

We are on a Named license with Adobe, but I am having trouble getting the "Adobe Package Downloader" to automatically open and start installing on our machines, I have tried almost everything publically available. Uploading the DMG to Jamf and using a "installPKGfromDMG", packaging up the downloader via composer and running a script to try and get that working. I have had absolutely no luck, has anyone?

You need to run the package downloader on your machine to download the installer packages for the particular application. Let's say you're trying to do Photoshop. You would open the Adobe Package Downloader for Photoshop on your machine, double click the app to run it, and that will download a zip file containing the installer and uninstaller packages for Photoshop.

You would upload the installer package that was downloaded in that zip file to Jamf. That is what you deploy. Not the DMG.

Hope that helps.
