Hello everyone.. I'm new to this whole thing so please bear with me if I ask stupid questions.

I'm trying to install adobe flash player remotely using the Altiris Deployment Console. I downloaded the .exe and the .msi from adobe. I have tried all of the tags, including the -install tag for the .exe and the /qn for the .msi. Nothing seems to work when I create a simple run script. If I go to the local machine and I run "C:\install_flash_player_10_active_x.exe -install" it will work on the local machine. However, the same exact thing in a run scrip will not work remotely.

All I'm trying to do is create a silent install with no user interface so that I can deploy flash player remotely to machines without any interference to the user. If anyone can give me any advice as to how I can uninstall the old version and then install the new version of flash player silently in one script it would be much appreciated. I am new to this whole thing and I haven't created transform files before so any responses would probably have to be written in dummy terms. Thanks for any help!

I have deployed it through SCCM using command line install for MSI (msiexec /i "install_flash_player_10_active_x.msi"/qn) and haven't had any problems, also used this command line in a batch file and it works fine

I deploy Flash Player 10.1 for IE this way:

Uninstall Flash Player:
uninstall_flash_player.exe -uninstall

Install Flash Player:

install_flash_player_10_active_x.exe" -install
xcopy "\\network_location\share\mms.cfg" /q /i %systemroot%\system32\Macromed\Flash\ > NUL

Use %systemroot%\SysWOW64\macromed\flash\ on x64 operating systems.
