I am taking a look at Kace1000 and am trying to figure out the best way to do things.

In the past I ran this script to uninstall an older Flash version, install the current ActiveX and Plugin and copy the mms.cfg to turn off auto updates:

\\server\SoftwareInstall\Flash10.3\uninstall_flash_player.exe -uninstall
msiexec.exe /q /norestart /i \\server\SoftwareInstall\Flash10.3\install_flash_player_10_active_X.msi
msiexec.exe /q /norestart /i \\server\SoftwareInstall\Flash10.3\install_flash_player_10_plugin.msi
copy \\server\SoftwareInstall\Flash10.3\mms.cfg c:\Windows\system32\Macromed\flash\mms.cfg /y

This seems to work fine, but I don't know how to use this script in scripts in KACE1000. The manual says I can import an existing script (in XML format) but this is just a basic batch file.

I did create a Managed install to install just the Active x part and that works fine, but it seems like I should be able to do this in one step.

Thanks.

You should be able to use a batch task in a script (scripting tab) to do what you want. Make sure you designate windows OS so you get the batch task options.

To go the Managed Install (MI) route you need to think in kbox. You would have an MI that could remove the old adobe and an MI that would add the new one. Only machines that report the old version, within the machine population you designate, will get the MI. That population can be determined by a label which could have it's own software (ie adobe flash) related criteria. E.g. pop'n could be "machines with adobe flash < version x"

There are some good training videos on MIs at http://www.kace.com/support/trial-kbox/
