SCCM - Installing and updating Adobe Creative Cloud

This article explains how to deploy the Adobe Creative Cloud apps and how to push Creative Cloud updates to client machines that have auto-updates disabled.

Deploying the Creative Cloud 2017 Apps

In SCCM, there are many applications for Adobe Creative Cloud apps. These applications are found under MIT Applications and are named as "EPM - Adobe ProductName CC 2017 (x64)".

You can deploy all of these to your target machines as "Available" and let users decide which to install, or you can choose to deploy only one set or the other.

Note: These packages are quite large – about 1.5GB each. If you try to install them all at the same time, it's possible it will exceed the SCCM cache size limit on the client machine, in which case the later packages will fail. In this case, simply retry the failed packages after the first ones finish installing.

Please Note: All of these packages have the Adobe auto-update enabled be default. If you would like to disable the auto-updating please look at this KB article.

Deploying updates remotely

Whether you have auto-updates enabled or not, you can still update your Adobe products at your discretion via SCCM by using the "Update Adobe CC" package.

In the SCCM Console, find the package under Software Library > Overview > Application Management > Packages > MIT Packages > Update Adobe CC.

Right-click on Update Adobe CC and select Deploy. Click next until you reach the Scheduling section.

In the Scheduling section, click New to add an assignment schedule. You can either set a time or simply choose "Assign immediately after this event" and "As soon as possible" to push it immediately. Be sure to set the Rerun Behavior to "Always rerun program".

Click next and you can now go through to the end with the default options.

Uninstalling Adobe Creative Cloud Apps

Simply deploy the application as you normally would and make sure to select the Uninstall option during the deployment wizard.
