Been reading through a lot of methods for uninstalling Adobe CS6 and I found a neat tool I'd like to use, it works great running locally on clients. Now I'm building a policy that includes a pkg (which dumps the unix executable and xml file into the tmp folder) and I need to call the executable. Thinking its best to build a little script add that calls the executable over adding to the Run command of the policy, but need some scripting guidance!

Call it with a postinstall script right in the package. Postinstall scripts run as root by default. maybe if you wanna get cute include an “echo” line in your script that gives you a log that your script actually ran.

Ahhh, never used a postinstall in a pkg, thanks for the tip @blackholemac . Reading up now on how to get that in
#!/usr/bin/perl ## postinstall $pathToScript=$0; $pathToPackage=$ARGV; $targetLocation=$ARGV; $targetVolume=$ARGV; exit 0; ## Success exit 1; ## Failure

Was able to get this functioning using this but the tool doesn't remove CS6.
#!/bin/bash if [[ ! -e "/Library/Logs/Adobe" ]]; then echo "/Library/Logs/Adobe directory does not exist, creating..." mkdir -p "/Library/Logs/Adobe" fi /private/tmp/AdobeUninstall/AdobeCCUninstaller | /usr/bin/tee "/Library/Logs/Adobe/AdobeUninstallUnauthorizedVersions_$(/bin/date +%F-%H%M%S).log"
