Create a single layer for Adobe CS3 through Windows command prompt by doing the following.

Open SVS Admin Console. Click on File > Create New Layer > Install Application > Give Layer Name > Single Program Capture and browse to C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe. This will launch Windows Command Processor.

When the Windows Command Processor window opens, SVS will start capture mode. At that point either drag and drop setup.exe file for Adobe CS3 into the Windows command processor or browse from within CMD window to the location of setup.exe for CS3 and start the installation process. Choose which applications from CS3 you want to install.

Once the installation process for Adobe CS3 is done, click Finish.

Important: Do not close the Windows Command Processor window.

Go to Start > All Programs > Adobe CS3 and launch every single application that is part of CS3 (Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, etc.)

Once you have launched all the applications and they have launched properly, close the Windows Command Processor window and at that point SVS Capture mode will finish.

Deactivate and Activate Adobe CS3 layer on the computer where it was created to make sure that the layer works properly.

If the layer works properly deactivate it, export the layer to create a .vsa package.

Move and test the layer on other computers by resetting the layer, rebooting the computers several times with the layer configure to start automatically.

If this method does not resolve the problem, please contact SVS Symantec Support.
