Software Deployment Question
Install Adobe Flash MSI and Disable Autoupdate (simply)
I read up on the MSI commands for Flash at http://www.itninja.com/software/adobe/flash-player-3/11-1436, but the process is convoluted and I an wanting to know why more then how at this point. It appears that in order to get the Auto update disabled you have to "Create no update file - Create the following file - C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg" then add the following line - AutoUpdateDisable=1" etc etc etc.... Can't i just run it with something like the following command "msiexec /i "Adobe_Flash_Player_v11.msi" /qn AutoUpdateDisable=1"?
No, the mms.cfg file is required.

No, this will not work.
1) mms.cfg is the file which needs to be created and Flash reads from there if it has to autoupdate or not.
2) Moreover, you can only pass Public Properties as an arguement to MSI. The one you have mentioned is no property in MSI and it is not a public property at all as you have mentioned it is not in all Caps.
