Adobe Flash Player 9


I would like to know how to disable the action "Notify me when an update to Adobe Flash Palyer is available" in the panel of Adobe Flash Player Settings Manager.

I've tried the file mms.cfg in SYSTEM32 containing "AutoUpdateDisable=1" but it seems it doesn't work.
When I controlled the notification, the checkbox is always on.

Could you help me about it ????

Hi Asgard,
please read the following carefully:
The file goes to: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Macromed\Flash
And has to be in UTF-8

Hi Christophe,
Adobe/Macromedia is *-*Grrrr :-( !!
The problem here is, that the settings from mms.cfg do not affect the Flash User Settings Dialog!
This one, i mean: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager05.html
However, if one does the sniff, like described in this document:
one can see that the settings work like they should.
With one page, i was able to get a visual responce. Take FireFox, clear all private data (cookies too!) and go to this web page:
Click on "Flash-Test starten". If you set AutoUpdateDisable=0 and AutoUpdateInterval=0 in the mms.cfg,
you see a popup with the update URL staying in the status line.
If you change AutoUpdateDisable=1 in the mms.cfg and clear the private data and restart FF with the same Page, you don't get the URL.
Will use the mms.cfg in the future too, on my deployments.
Hope this helps.
Regards, Nick
