Hi,

Trying to upgrade approx 1600 desktops running win2k and winxp with Flash 9 active x. There are different versions of flash currently on different pc's.

I have used a bat file that unistalls the previous versions of flash and then it installs Flash 9. The uninstall goes well, but the actuall installation of Flash 9 fails with error 1603.

I have removed admin user as a launch condition of msi, and have trying to install bat file using zenworks by both granting admin and non admin rights and still fail.

The flash 9 installation starts and then fails... have tried everything.. appreciate any help... here is bat file;

:CHECKFLASHLEGACY
REM This will uninstall a legacy Flash Player
if exist "C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\flash.ocx" (goto DELETEFLASHLEGACY) ELSE (goto CHECKFLASH8X)

:DELETEFLASHLEGACY
uninstall_flash_player.exe /silent

:CHECKFLASH8X
REM This will remove an advertised version of Flash 8
if exist "C:\WINDOWS\Installer\{6815FCDD-401D-481E-BA88-31B4754C2B46}" (goto UNINSTALLFLASH8X) ELSE (goto INSTALLFLASH9)

:UNINSTALLFLASH8X
uninstall_flash_player.exe /silent

:INSTALLFLASH9
msiexec.exe /i install_flash_player_active_x.msi /qb

:EOF

After the uninstall completes, might be worth a check to see if you have any entries in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\PendingFileRenameOperations

registry key indicating that a reboot may be needed before the next installation can go ahead.

Also, do you have any entries in the Application Event Log that may give a clue as to the reason for failure of the installation after the uninstall ?
