    Hello all,

    I have to admit i’m pretty much horrified at the new afx installer behaviour.
    First of all it doesnt leave any choices… exept destination… i’d like to be able
    to choose what to install but whatever.
    Second, while installing adobe help center, the installer decides to scan the *whole* disk.
    Not only this is a breach of privacy for an application, but it also takes one hell of a long
    time when the disk is big(especially a 1TB array with 600k+ files) while putting a lot
    of strain on the disk.
    Third, even worse, the installer cant cope properly with strangely named files(= non ascii),
    after waiting 20 mins for the scan to be done i started getting massively errors of type:
    “Subsystem returned this error: ^0” from ahc.exe.
    After killing the whole msiexec.exe for the adobe help center, the thing continued installing
    properly and finished.

    Has anyone else seen these very annoying bugs/features?

    Alternatively, if anyone knows switches to get it to install properly without errors…

    Note: the help center doesnt work, since i had to kill it…
    i get a “could not complete operation” when launching it…
    (so if anyone has an idea on that…)

    Can’t you just temporarily disable your large disks and run the installer under a different hardware profile? This should effectively avoidthe long scanning procedures. Don’t know why it won’t install into certain directories on your system. The only bug I’m aware of regarding this issue was Mac related (and has been resolved).
