Dear my friends,

but can't get success when push to client side.
here is so message that i hope anyone can help me.Please........
because i need to deploy it for 300 client pc in next monday (deadline) ><!

COMMAND LINE : install_flash_player_10_activex.msi /quiet /norestart

Description (report)
An error occurred while preparing to run the program for advertisement "G4120XXX" ("G410XXXX" - "Flash 10.3 ActiveX"). The operating system reported error -2147024894: The system cannot find the file specified. Additional program properties: Command line: install_flash_player_10_activex.msi /quiet /norestart Working directory: Drive letter (? = any): Possible cause: This message most commonly occurs when the program's command-line executable file could not be found, when a required drive letter connection to a distribution point could not be established, or when the program is configured to use the SMS Software Installation Account but the account is not specified, could not be found, or does not have the appropriate permissions. Solution: Check each of the items listed above.

i am sure that the location is fully access-able for client pc.
that i though , maybe there i missed some step.

Thx for all you help.

IIRC, SCCM is pretty dumb as far as handling registered file types is concerned. You'll need to use the full command line, i.e. including the call to MSIEXEC.

Thank you.
So that you mean the command line should be msiexec /i install_flash_player_10_activex.msi /quiet /norestart right?

Nearly there, I assume that you've not produced an MST to customise the installation in anyway so:

msiexec /i install_flash_player_10_activex.msi /qn REBOOT=ReallySuppress

/qn :quiet with no user interface
REBOOT=ReallySuppress :configures the REBOOT public property on the comnandline to prevent a restart.

You might also want to set this in SCCM to only run when no user is logged in. It's a browser plugin, so if the browser is open the plugin installation may fail.

Thanks,

the flash player version turn back to 10.2 not 10.3. Have you checked the actual file version information? Have you matched the installed file versus the content of the MSI? Did you use a verbose log of the install?

I'm afraid I don't understand what you're asking about in your last post about local cacheing.

Use ProcMon to determine how the version number is displayed. Perhaps it's being called from an old registry setting which you may have overlooked? Also have you followed my advice from post #7? That is, does the installed file's properties match those in the MSI?

In the logs you posted it lists: CommandLine = "\"C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\msiexec.exe\" /a install_flash_player_10_plugin.msi /qn REBOOT=ReallySuppress";

What do you have listed as the command line in the package's Program? Are you using "/a", or are you using "/i" as shown by DUNNPY's post?

ok. Here i want to say sorry with Lucid , VBScab and DUNNPY.
i just take a sickleave and return office to try again.
And i though there is a misstake inside our discuess.
the CommandLine what a usually say .... that i though is under programs / properties /
and here is my currently CommandLine : "Adobe Flash Player 10.3.18.14\install_flash_player_10_active_x.msi" /qn REBOOT=ReallySuppress

There is no more msiexec /i or /a.
The sccm can transfer to "C:\WINDOWS\System32\msiexec.exe" /i "C:\WINDOWS\system32\CCM\Cache\G41000C8.11.System\Adobe Flash Player 10.3\install_flash_player_10_active_x.msi" /qn REBOOT=ReallySuppress when we are pushing on server.

And there is /a installation on sccm client side which allow you to install manually.

So i here say Thank You with all you help in my post.
And appologize with my bad communication.

there is /a installation on sccm client side which allow you to install manually. No, the '/a' argument is used to create an Administrative Installation Point. It does NOT install the product.

The command line you show still doesn't include an explicit call to MSIExec.EXE.

i don't know.
But it really success when i useing "Adobe Flash Player 10.3.18.14\install_flash_player_10_active_x.msi" /qn REBOOT=ReallySuppress
Under the sccm report from server, it show me "C:\WINDOWS\System32\msiexec.exe" /i "C:\WINDOWS\system32\CCM\Cache\G41000C8.11.System\Adobe Flash Player 10.3\install_flash_player_10_active_x.msi" /qn REBOOT=ReallySuppress .

so i guess it may transfer something automatically.
trust me. that real.
and thx for your reply.it make me fix the problem.^^"

I've used the exact same syntax in my Adobe Flash SCCM deployments, "msiexec /i install_flash_player_10_activex.msi /qn REBOOT=ReallySuppress". It has always worked well. In fact, until now, I noticed, from trial and error testing, that it appeared to upgrade Flash on machines, regardless of whether people were logged in or not, and had browsers open.

But with the latest version, 10.3.181.23, I notice it returns error messages unless you specify " when no user is logged in".
