You can use the .msi installers with standard switches to install both versions of Flash Player (ActiveX and Plugin).
If you want to prevent Flash from doing automatic updates, create a transform file from the .msi using InstEdIt or Orca, and change the following items:
CustomAction - change the action named "NewCustomAction1" target from "-install -msi" to "-install -msi -au 2"
Property - Set AgreeToLicense to Yes, ISCHECKFORPRODUCTUPDATES to 0, and RebootYesNo to No.
Save your .mst file (e.g. flash.mst) and include it with your base .msi installer. Your command line for a silent install of the ActiveX version is:
msiexec.exe /qn /i install_flash_player_13_active_x.msi TRANSFORMS=flash.mst
This method avoids having to use a seperate mms.cfg file to turn off the auto updates.
Just noticed the Flash autoupdate service now do major versions too. A change from not to long ago. I install both the active-x and plugin version from the .exe with the "-install -au 0" switches using Intune. Seems like a hands off solution from now on even doing major updates, i.e. even going from 12 -> 13 was autoupdated without user notification or interference.
