Anyone know where I can download the latest flash player so that I can deploy it via a quiet and unattended install from SMS? I downloaded the "mm_fl_sw_installer.exe file and ran it with the /S switch but it seems that only shochwave installed. I need the flash player so if there's a direct link to the exe or msi file could someone please post it?

TIA

Macromedia has a place on their web site to download redistributable versions of Flash and Shockwave. Before you get access to the download, they basically make you promise not to redistribute it outside your environment.

Here's the link: http://www.macromedia.com/support/shockwave/info/licensing/faq.html#item-5

Ha ha!

I only got that one quickly because I just sent an email about it two days ago - I copied the link from my sent items, so it was a piece of cake.

running the file from the command line with the /? or -? switch doesn't reveal the switches I can use to run this silently. Does the /s switch still work for this?

Can someone assist me with the following command line I'm using to deploy this app:

msiexec /I install_flash_player_7.msi /s

I've tried it with the /S and /s via SMS and it doesn't finish.

Here's a list of command line options that MSIEXEC accepts. I believe you want "/qn" or "/qb" for this one.

Link:

So your command line would be:
msiexec /i \\path\flash.msi TRANSFORMS=IfYouHaveOne.mst /qb

Nice transform Thai, "Alright dudes! Transform 'em if ya got 'em!"

Methinks he would like /qn or /qb- since anything else may or will produce a dialog box which could pause the install.

Good point. I usually use /qb for testing because I like to see the messages. I go /qn when I'm actually sending it out.

My apologies for keeping such a simple thread going but this just isn't working. I'm using the following command line:

msiexec /i install_flash_player_7.msi /qb

and it doesn't install. The package arrives at the system and never installs. I'm not using a transform but I don't think this is the problem. I think the only switch I haven't tried is /qb- or /quiet.
Anyone???

Hi, have you tried just installing on a test machine with:

msiexec /i install_flash_player_7.msi

Or by just double clicking the MSI to see what's going on? It may be that you need to add entries to the property table (for example to accept the licence agreement) to get the software to install silently...

If so, this should be done using a transform as mentioned earlier.

Hope this helps,
Rob.

You're correct. I double-clicked the file and nothing happened. I decided to try this with the mm_fl_sw_installer.exe file and it installed shockwave and the flash player so I'll see if I can deploy this using the following command:

\\server\flash\mm_fl_sw_installer.exe /q

I tried /? to see if there were any switches but didn't was prompted to install the app. Can anyone confirm??
Thanks

Marvinc based on my observation in the thread, have you tried this command?

\\server\flash\mm_fl_sw_installer.exe /s
