We are Deploying Windows 7 (Domain Environment) and we have the task of deploying Adobe CS5 Master Collection. We make our students members of local guest to delete the profile on logoff. Since we have done this Adobe CS5 will not work under guest. "This product cannot be used under a Guest account" Has a method been found to work arround this or a sollution to fix this?
I am having no luck with Adobe.

This is actually a product limitation for all of the Creative Suite 5 products.  Our current activation technology can not be launched under the Guest user account.  Here is the quote from cpsid_82720, "No guest users on Windows launch. A guest user cannot launch the application on Windows. However, a guest user can launch the application on Mac OS.”

From Adobe:
We can not provide information on how to get around this but we can pass any feedback along to our product teams for future consideration.  If you can provide us with addtional information about why you require this funcitonality, we will pass it to the appropriate group.

your best approach is to create a group account and run adobe from that.
