K1000 Patching Adobe Flash Player 18 NPAPI but not Active X version.
We have been patching Adobe Flash Player, both the NPAPI (plugin for other browsers like Firefox) and Active X (for Internet Explorer) for a long time. Chrome takes care of the PPAPI plugin by itself so doesn't need to be patched. With the release of Flash Player 18 only the NPAPI plugin is being updated and the Active X version is failing to be patched. Most of our computers already had Flash Player 17 installed. I made a Managed Install in the interim but has anyone else experienced this issue? The patch details show both versions are downloaded as Associated Files (Patch-Smart.AdobeFlashPlayerActiveX188.8.131.52.exe and Patch-Smart.AdobeFlashPlayerPlugin184.108.40.206.exe).

The release of the newer version of Flash Player from Lumension is working fine to update both NPAPI and Active X plugins. Both were updated and detected:
Adobe Flash Player 18 ActiveX (220.127.116.11) 06/25/2015 19:35:59 - Detected
Adobe Flash Player 18 NPAPI (18.104.22.168) 06/25/2015 19:35:59 - Detected
