Hi, I´m deploying Adobe Flash 10.3 player with SCCM in a tasksequence. First I kill iexplore.exe and mozille.exe. 2nd step is a package that runs install_flash_player_10_active_x.exe -install.
This works fine for most computers, but some got exit code 1025 (= adobe flash player in use).
How could I be sure Adobe Flashplayer is killed before I deploy it in a TS ? Or should I use the MSI instead of EXE ?

Thanks, Magnus

Why don't you setup the package/program to only install "When no user is logged on....."

will it work on laptops that users shutdown on evenings ? The time between startup and logon is probably very short.
I was thinking about using the MSI instead of EXE, maybe it will take care of files that are locked.

If memory serves, the EXE extracts and executes an MSI so no, it won't make any difference.

The normal way that this scenario is handled is to email your users that on date 'x' at time 'y' their machines must be left in a powered-on state but with no user logged in. After that, you may need to do a round-up of machines used by people who are unable to a) read and/or b) follow basic instructions or c) whose machines weren't available at the time.
