I have downloaded the fully licensed msi for Shockwave 10.2.0.22 and created a transform for it. I am attempting to install it silently via this command: msiexec /i sw_lic_full_installer.msi /qn TRANSFORMS="sw10_2_0_22.mst" REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=omus. It runs without any errors, but when I check the file version of %WINDIR%\system32\macromed\swinit.exe, it is still at version 10.1.4.20. Just for kicks, I ran the msi fully interactively, answered all of the questions, and let the install finish (again with no error), and the file version is still 10.1.4.20. Has anyone else seen this behavior? I am wondering if it is simply something that Adobe messed up, or if the install just isn't working right, but not generating any errors.

TIA,
Jon

Just for the heck of it, I ran the executable instead (sw_lic_full_installer.exe) with the /s switch, and it ran fine as well as updating the file version of SwInit.exe. It appears that the problem is with the msi file itself.

Can you tell me which table and cell I need to be looking at? There are a lot of cells that correspond to ReinstallMode.

Hi Steve,
welcome to appdeploy. You can find a lot of information in the package kb.
Including the one you are searching for.
See: http://itninja.com/link/here-in-the-forum (links).

But be aware, that this MSI does not work for Mozilla-/Netscape-based browsers.

Hi Steve,
In order to get it, you have to sign a licensing agreement with Adobe. It doesn't cost you anything, and you can find all of the info concerning it here; http://www.macromedia.com/licensing/

Thanks Nick for the welcome and the links to the Shockwave info. Very much appreciated. I have some reading to do. :-)

Jon, I didn't realize the .msi was available when signing the license agreement. I'll have to take another look as I have only downloaded .exe files from there.

Steve.

I also downloaded the fully licensed MSI from the Flash and Shockwave Player Distribution Site. The "Full EXE Installer" and "Slim EXE Installer" both install 10.2.0.22 but the MSI installs 10.1.4.020.

I logged a job with Adobe in regards to this, here is their response from the 26/06/2007:

Hi,

Thank you for contacting Adobe regarding the missing Shockwave Player MSI installer.

<<<Can you please update the Shockwave Player Distribution Downloads Site to include the Shockwave 10.2.0.022 MSI>>>

The current MSI installer version installs version 10.1.4r21, however you can use the EXE in the interim to deploy the current version. The Shockwave Player team is working to update the site. Thanks for your patience!

Regards,
Player Licensing Support

Hi folks,
if you really need an actual MSI package, you could try to inject the files from 10.2 to the 10.1-MSI.
extract the files from the 10.2 exe with 'Universal Extractor'
Do an admin install of the 10.1-MSI with 'msiexec /a'. Then you can replace the files in the admin directories.
Don't forget to change the product + package codes. Check the MSI for version strings and replace them if necessary.
You also could update the file versions in the MSI with 'cscript WiFilVer.vbs' (although, this shouldn't be necessary).

Regards, Nick

Anyone heard any updates about the msi for 10.2 being created as yet?

Quite amazing that they did not release it with the exe!

FYI... the 10.2.0.23 package changed the behavior of the MSI install to not ask if you wanted to install the google toolbar. I never could get that thing to shut up before but it wasn't an issue since we already installed the toolbar previously.

Hi Chip,
the redistributeable versions (exe and MSI) did never have google bar included.

Hi Dean,
don't know what you are downloading from where.
BUT: The full exe installer on Adobe's distribution download page does not contain Google toolbar.
BTW: SW 11 is out since April....
