Shockwave player is already an MSI so no need to repackaging, have a look at http://itninja.com/link/here-in-the-forum

Hi there,
Please you did not answer the question. I am talking about Adobe Shockwave Player 10.1.4.20. I want to know how to turn off the Google Toolbar prompt when you run it for the first time.

During installation or when you launch the player for the first time?

If you are able to disable the google toolbar during the prompt then I would use a system monitor (ex. Process Monitor) to see which registry/file that is changed and then set that in the package (transform if vendor MSI).

Hi Kofi,
please do not reinvent the wheel!
You need to download the corporate installer. There is already an MSI version of it and it does not contain the Google Toolbar.
So, please don't waste your and our time with doing jobs, which others have already done for you.

Version 10.1 is old and has security issues, so unless you have specific needs for the older version, you shouldn't use it!
The actual version is 11.0.

You need to get a free license here, to download the MSI installer:
https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/entitlement/index.cfm?e=shockwave

If you really need the older version, there is a form on the licensing page to get them.

Regards, Nick

Hi,
Sorry, but I have the same issue with the 12.1.160 version of Shockwave.
At the first launch of a Shockwave page, I've got not only google toolbar but also Norton asking me to install their product !
I downloaded the MSI at the link Adobe gave me and installed it silently (with the correction of Itnija tips with a MST file), but I can't deploy such a product to my customers because I'm sure a lot of them will don't look at the checkbox and install them.
So did you solve your problem ?

Thank you

Hi skalpa,
don't you think, resurrecting a 7! year old thread is not the best idea?
However, if you read my previous post in this thread, you would not have to have to post at all...
The corporate MSI installer doesn't contain this adware crap.
The only thing you might additionally need, is to disable the auto updater, which is documented here at ITNinja too.

Is there another link than this one to get the corporate version ? http://www.adobe.com/go/sw_msi_installer
Because I think it's the corporate one.

Hi skalpa,
no, this is the redirection link, which points always too the newest corporate installer.
And there is NO Google, Norton etc in this package!
