How do I write the script to install Adobe Flash Player (11.8.800.175)?

I want to be able to run this silent and accept the recommended updates. I am also doing this with a exe file.

  • You should ad a Tag for Adobe Flash Player to your Question, so it can be found on the Page of the Software - EbrithilBowser 10 years ago
  • I seem to be having issues with this too, so do I download the plugin or the files that have active x in the name. Did you have to have a separate installer for 32 and 64bit systems? Thanks in advance for the help! - clausent 10 years ago
  • I had to download the .exe file for both Internet Explorer and Firefox. There should be only one option. I only used the main one that you search for on Adobe's site and it works for both 32bit and 64bit. - tsienkiewicz@ldirx.com 10 years ago

For the .exe use the switch /install

Where would you put the switch /install in the script.  This is what I currently have and it does not accept the recommended updates:

install_flashplayer11x32ax_gtbd_chrd_dn_aaa_aih.exe /msi /s EULA_ACCEPT=YES AUTOUPDATECHECK=0 /qn

  • Ok - you will want to apply for a distribution license here:


    You jump through a few hoops for them and they will send you a link to an .exe and a .msi that are designed for mass deployments. I use the .exe with the /insall switch. - jegolf 10 years ago
  • Just to add to jegolf's comment, that file is not the full installer, that's why those parameters won't work. - nheyne 10 years ago
    • Do you know where I could get the full installer? - tsienkiewicz@ldirx.com 10 years ago
      • Follow the instructions above, you have to apply for it and they will send you a link. - nheyne 10 years ago
      • You can also download .msi-Install-Files here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html - EbrithilBowser 10 years ago

I still cannot run this script.  It still does not get through when it asks if you want to run updates automatically.  Does anyone have this same issue or does someone have a script that works for this file?

I run this as a managed install and just use /q /i and it installs fine using the msi

I deploy Flash using the .msi mentioned above and the .cfg file to prevent updates found here, http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/administration-configure-auto-update-notification.html
