Creating silent installation/deployment files
Creative Suite 5 product silent installations require two files: an install.xml file and an application.xml.override file. The deployment folder can be located anywhere on your machine or network, but a convenient is in the Creative Suite 5 product installation folder, alongside the set-up application.

1. Create the installation file
Copy the file from the deploy folder on your installation media to the location where you want your deployment files stored.
Rename the file to install.xml.
2. Create the application.xml.override file
The application.xml.ov file is required for serialization during installation, registration suppression, End User License Agreement (EULA) suppression, and update suppression.

Open Notepad (Windows) or TextEdit (Mac OS).  
Copy the following text into the application:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Configuration><Payload adobeCode="{Product_Code}">
<Data key="Serial" protected="0">12341234123412341234</Data>
<Data key="Registration">Suppress</Data><Data key="Updates">Suppress</Data><Data key="EULADelay">-1</Data>  
</Payload>
</Configuration>

Replace Product_Code with your product's code:
Navigate to <Installation source folder>\payloads.
Open setup.xml in Notepad (Windows) or TextEdit (Mac OS).
Locate the <mediaSignature> tag.
Copy the alphanumeric product code between <mediaSignature> and </mediaSignature>.
Paste the copied code into the {Product_Code} value in the application.xml.override file.
Example: <Configuration><Payload adobeCode="{DE60F0DE-469A-42DC-A678-978313210057}">.

Replace 123412341234123412341234 with your serial number.  
Important:  Omit hyphens. Delete <Data key="Registration">Suppress</Data> to have the registration prompt display.  Delete <Data key="Updates">Suppress</Data> to have the Adobe Application Manager check for updates.
Save the file as application.xml.override in the deployment folder.
Important:  Make sure that application.xml.override does not have any additional extensions, such as .txt.  
Silently installing Creative Suite 5 products
Replace the path to the deployment file to the location you have stored your deployment files. This location may be the same as your Set-up application. If the location is the same you can use .\ on Windows or ./ on Macintosh before your file name.  

Windows
Important: In a command prompt, navigate to the folder containing the Set-up.exe.

Open a command prompt with administrative privileges or enter the command into the run/command line field in your deployment technology.  
Type Set-up.exe --mode=silent --deploymentFile="\\Server-name\CS5_Product_Folder\Deployment_Files\install.xml" --overrideFile="\\Server-name\CS5_Product_folder\Deployment_Files\application.xml.override" and press Enter.

Optional settings
The following options can be added to the end of the command line:

--overrideFile="<Deployment files source path>\application.xml.override"
This option allows you to pre-serialize, supress EULA, supress updates, or supress registration.
--installSourcePath="<Installation source path>"
This option will allow you to specify where the installation source files are stored.
--action=<value>
The action option allows you to specify whether you want to run an install  or uninstall. The installer will run in install mode if no option is specified. Replace <value> with one of the following options to specific a mode: install and uninstall.
