Software Deployment Question

Deploying Adobe Flash 27

09/11/2017 1377 views
Hi there, 

I am having difficulty deploying Adobe Flash 27 (NPAPI, and Active X versions). 
I have uploaded both adobe software packages, and I have added the -install command to Additional Parameters. I have also added an uninstall managed installation to remove all older versions of Adobe Flash. So, far, only 28 of 200 machines have received the Active X version, and less than 10 have received the NPAPI version. 
Where do I start looking to find out why deployment is not working? I have left it for over a week, and no more machines have been updated.

  • 1. Check the OS versions for the software title.
    2. Have machines checked into the appliance?
    3. If you aren't using the MSI for distribution from Adobe I recommend applying for a distribution license and downloading them.
    • Im not using the MSI, so I think thats what it is. We have a distribution license, so Ill go back one version, and install the MSI version instead. thanks.

to be honest, it does not really matter if you use the exe of MSI version to deploy, as the MSI is just a simple wrapper around the legacy installer.
Personally I'd go for a PS wrapper that deploys all versions (ActiveX, for Google and for Firefox) in one go (Of course only the ActiveX for <= Win7)

Rename the three types of player (activeX, FF and Google)

call them from the script..
boohaa1.exe -install -au 2
boohaa2.exe -install -au 2
boohaa3.exe -install -au 2

Delete the scheduled task and ensure that the service really is dead (-au2 switch should do this as well as disabling autoupdate)
You can also edit the ARP entries from the script.
