Product Installation

Only authorized Campus Techs may install Master Collection. The software is for installation ONLY ON University owned workstations including student computer labs. Campus Techs deploying the software must use Adobe’s AAMEE 3.1 tool. See the information below:

Imaging and AAMEE:

Q. What if I use an imaging technique instead of a deployment approach?

A. You can continue to use your current imaging technique. However, before cloning, you first use AAMEE 3.1 to create a serialized installation package and then install it to your master machine.


From the Adobe website regarding the Adobe ID and licensing:

Q. How do the new CS6 identity aware licensing changes around the Adobe ID effect the Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition?

A. The requirement to have an Adobe ID associated with an install is only a minor impact for the enterprise. Adobe has made an effort to minimize the impact to enterprise organizations by not requiring Adobe IDs for the end users of the product. The IT administrator simply needs to either create or login in with an Adobe ID on behalf of their organization from within AAMEE 3.1. The end users will not be prompted to for using an Adobe ID.


AAMEE Software
