Adobe Flash Push

10/01/2012 3945 views

Hello all,


I'm trying to do a mass update of Adobe flash 11.  Does anyone know what the installation command may be? Or better yet, help my understand how to write my own.

Apply for the distribution license to get access to the flash MSI's (one for IE and one for Firefox/Chrome)


msiexec /I flash.msi /qn  

to install silently. 

Created a file mms.cfg with following lines:


Put this file in C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash to disable update

I've also seen that in the directories created in the system folder\macromed\flash, there's an OCX file that is difficult to delete, making a deletion of the folders fail and the control panels stay behind.  I wound up needing to use cacls to set administrators to full permissions on the OCX files in both system directories in order to enable deleting the files.  That only worked at uninstall - if you set the file permissions at install, Flash isn't recognized.

  • Also: there is a settings.sol file that stores hardware acceleration settings. If you have hardware acceleration disabled, delete that file (it's in the user profiles) and that will re-enable hardware acceleration.

Do you use anything like Group Policy in your company? If you do it should just be a matter of creating a new object for it, linking it to a room and it will install silently.
