Deployment Tip Summary

I also had a problem the Flash player would load but no plugins for Internet were there. I had to put a system reboot in then load the plugins so that they would show up in internet explorer.

Note

x64 MSI contains x86 Flash Player as well. Hence, there is no need to download BOTH x86 AND x64 if you're installing on x64.

Note

As with previous versions, automatic updates can be disabled by creating a file called 'mms.cfg' in the Windows folder. The mms.cfg file only needs to have one line specifying 'AutoUpdateDisable = 1'.


To disable updates for both the 32-bit and 64-bit players, these commands will work:

echo AutoUpdateDisable = 1 >> %WINDIR%\System32\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg

echo AutoUpdateDisable = 1 >> %WINDIR%\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg

Note

To enable the new automatic silent update (via service) feature in Flash 11.2, install with -au 0

Eg.: install_flash_player_11_plugin_64bit.exe -install -au 0

If you want to disable update check completely, use -au 2

This does not work with the MSI versions, you still have to use a MMS.cfg file to adjust those settings, see http://wwwimages.adobe.com/www.adobe.com/content/dam/Adobe/en/devnet/flashplayer/pdfs/flash_player_11_2_admin_guide.pdf for more.

  • I do this also and it installs but when you go look at Internet explorer there is no add on for Flash is this because Internet explorer does not finish installing the profile till after it has loaded?

Script

I wrote this script to check the version of Adobe Flash you are using, if it's out of date, then update your version of Flash based on if you are using 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows 7 and Vista (Haven't tested on XP). Also, silent installs. I modified the MSI files using Orca to disable auto updates and anything else it would prompt for. It also logs the install process in case anything goes wrong. I'm sure you could add some lines to clean up the registry and also uninstall an older version before installing over the top, but this works just fine for my current needs.

The 11.4.402.265 msi seems to support the ISCECKFORPRODUCTUPDATES=2 public property value to turn off automatic updates.

Silent uninstall


Grab the appropriate file for your bitness from here:
http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html


Then, run:


uninstall_flash_player_32bit.exe -uninstall

uninstall_flash_player_64bit.exe -uninstall


Note: If you have a 64-bit system and have installed the 64-bit version of Flash, both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions will have been installed.  The 64-bit uninstaller gets rid of both.
