All Clients are running XP. They have Flash 8.0.24 installed on the workstations. I want to push out Flash 9.0 to all clients. When running the Flash 9.MSI file manually, it prompts to hit continue during the install, it states that the Uninstallation was Succesful, then continues to install Flash 9. If I push FLASH 9.MSI out via GPO, it will fail and not install Flash 9, nor Remove Flash 8. I have tried creating the MSI using EMCO's MSI Package Builder, but their current version has a problem writing to a certain key in the registery. EMCO is aware of this and is working on the problem (don't know when they will resolve it) How can I sucessfully deploy FLASH 9 over Flash 8.0.24?

Thanks
Chris

Hi Chris,
what does the logfile tell you?
It lies in %systemroot%\temp.
What exactly did you change on the vendors MSI?

There is nothing in %systemroot%\temp
In the vendors MSI creator... you run the .exe as you normatlly would, the utility monitors the changes and will creat a msi for you.
The utility can be found here:

Hi Chris,
don't reinvent the wheel!
You should always check the package KB before packaging yourself!
Adobe delivers this already as an MSI!
See: http://itninja.com/link/adobe---player-licensing
You should find everything you need, there.

Ive been to that page already. I can get the MSI for Flash 9 to work when I manually do it, but when I either create a MSI or if I create a a simple command script, it sill shows up with the Press to Continue bottuon. and when I use the MSI Creator.. it is a problem with the MSI Creator that cannot create it.
MsiExec.exe /i install_flash_player_plugin.msi /q REBOOT=ReallySuppress

I have used that command line that I got from the link you menitoned, still does not work correctly.

Hi Chris,
now, you have to definitley switch on logging and see, what's going on.
Search for appsearch in the logfile and have a look what's telling you there.

http://www.appdeploy.com/FAQ/detail.asp?id=73As this sets up a machine-based policy, you'll need to restart the computer before it takes effect.

Hi Ian,
while this is the case with most of settings, this one is active as soon as you switch it on.

If I'm not misstaken this "policy" is active at once if the Windows Installer (MSIInstaller) service hasn't been started yet.
If it has just restart the service and the logging policy should work as expected.
