Does anyone know if flash comes in .MSI format already or does it have to be wrapped.
I am having troubles finding Flash .msi[8D]

Through version MX 2004, Flash is not available in .msi format. It must be repackaged.

I repackaged it last week, was fairly straightforward.
- Started with a clean machine
- Did a setupcapture
- Compiled the .msi and tested it, worked fine!

Is it Flash or Flash Player you are looking for, there is an enterprise edition of the flash player that is free and comes in MSI form. I create a quick transform for it and it worked great.

When packaging Studio MX 2004, is it possible to include the registration process in the package?
We don't want to have to give out the serial number to users when we push the app out via altiris.

I am unsure right now, but I have the media coming from Macromedia, so if the question is still posted then i will post my findings. You could always repackage the application if it is not a native msi install.

Ramesys,

I was able to include the registration when I repackaged Studio MX. I posted notes at http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=241 There is a "serialization hotfix" that is particularly important to be aware of that I documented.

I would also strongly suggest that you break up Studio MX components (Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash, & Freehand) into separate packages. DW & FW are fairly hefty, and easier to deal with individually.

Based on past experiences with Macromedia MX products I would definitely have to agree with craig16229. They become HUGE installations, especially Dreamweaver.......as for your question about flash mx 2004, I will be repackaging most of the MX 2004 apps today, I will let you know the best way.

Created MSI for Flash using Wise Package Studio 5. Used the standard capture method with a Volume License key and then applied the "Serialization Hotfix". It compiled and installed with no problems. On a side not though, I would work on getting Volume Licenses for all new Adobe and Macromedia products. They are using this macrovision licensing and it is a pain in the @ss to work around........

Guys, Heres a challenge.

I am packaging studio Mx into an msi file. when creating a snapshot i enter serial details and yet on deployment i am being re-prompted. I am also aware of the hot fix thanks to the above users. however, i do not want to have to log in to each machine as admin to install the software..


is there a way to package studio mx as one msi without having to prompt for registration details? eg a Network version?

Cheers in advance

Anyone re-package Flash MX 2004 into an MSI with Admin Studio.

Once re-package and installed thru SMS, each time the user logs-off or reboots,
the application re-rolls when they start it?

Thanks, Gregg--

i used a volume licence but when starting flash the first time, it always ask for the Registration process.
The only difference between Volume Licence and individual serial nums is that the registration process don't check for Internet Activation.

However, Flash MX always generate on the fly a Registration Key on the HKLM\Macromedia\Flash\7

that depends on the hardware.

Volume licence didn't solve my problem and we don't want to send the Serial to final users.

some tips ?

When you apply for (free) volume licesensing from Adobe you have the option to download it as .exe OR .msi
