Hi,
I have a little problem to disable the auto update in Adobe Flash player 10.0.22.87 and 10.0.32.18. Have tried to serge the forum but didn't find anything. I have used the C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg file
and set it to AutoUpdateDisable=1 and saved it using UTF-8 Encoding.
But that only disable the auto update when you already have installed the msi.

My problem is when I install the old 10.0.22.87 version I get a ("Adobe Flash Player ActiveX Setup" The version of Adobe Flash Player ActiveX that you are trying to install is not the most current version. Please visit http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer to obtain the latest, most secure version.).
I tried to set the "ISCHECKFORPRODUCTUPDATES" property in the msi to 0 but that didn't help.
It seams as the new 10.0.32.18 is built in a similar manner as the old one so I can use the same settings for both.
Is it anyone ho knows how to disable it?

Thanks in advance

Did you register for the corporate deployment MSI from Adobe?

If so, the mms.cfg setting is all you should need...

Yes both the old and the new one but that didn't work. It only work when I have already installed the msi file, then it don't ask for updates when you run a website using Flash.
But when I install the msi on a computer and a newer version is out there I still get the update message even if the cfg file is there.

Hmm guess I've not seen that as we package in a pre-production environment with no internet access.

Surely though when it comes to deployment time (Group Policy / SMS or whatever) it will be done under the system account which (obviously) wouldn't have internet access anyway?

Well you say you've set the ISCHECKFORPRODUCTUPDATES propery to 0 which hasn't helped... How about you try removing the following 2 CAs:

CheckForProductUpdates
CheckForProductUpdatesOnReboot

They sound suspicious [;)]

Thanks. I was thinking about that Custom Action and now I tried to delete both but it still gave me the update message on install. Seams to be a hard one to get around...[;)]

Well then I'd setup verbose logging and have a look through that - it can't be that hard to track down... [:)]

Thanks. I will try that also. I thought that solution was the same as the mms.cfg file but for home users.[;)] But Ill give it a try.

This was a hard nut to crack. I have tried the old Regmon and Filemon and I only monitoring the FP_AX_MSI_INSTALLER.exe and the install_flash_player_10_active_x.msi.
But I could not see any actually difference when I installed the new one that didn't ask for a update and the old one that did.
I also tried to use Ultra Network Sniffer but I'm a newbie on that one so the only thing I manage to se was that my computer was connecting to some IP addressees.[&:]

The verbose msi log didn't show so much either. One thing that look a bit suspicious was
MSI (s) (A0:68) [17:22:40:863]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Adding UpdateStarted property. Its value is '1'.

And
MSI (s) (A0:68) [17:22:41:029]: Executing op: ComponentRegister(ComponentId={ED69B7BD-45A0-40C5-81A0-DCC1CFEBC694},KeyPath=02:\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Shockwave 11\AutoUpdate\,State=3,,Disk=1,SharedDllRefCount=0,BinaryType=0)

And
MSI (s) (A0:68) [17:23:08:348]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Deleting UpdateStarted property. Its current value is '1'.

I tried to set the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Shockwave 11\AutoUpdate to "n" instead off "y" in the msi but it seams as the exe file overwrite it.[:@]
I am going to try and se if I can manually set the regvalue and se if that makes any difference[:D]
