Good Morning All - 

This is my first post as I wanted to give this site a shot.  

I am currently in the process of implementing SCCM 2012 for my company.  I have a lot of previous experience with SCCM 2007.  One app we manage as most do is Adobe Flash.

With SCCM, Flash may be deployed alongside Microsoft Software Updates using SCUP or directly as a deployble application.  The catch is that I do not want Flash to automtically look for updates.  Accomplishing this may be donw in two ways.

1. Edit the Flash MSI with Orca and change the property "ISCHECKFORPRODUCTUPDATES" from a 1 to 0.

2. Deploy a file named mms.cfg to the Macromed\Flash folder in SysWOW64 & System32.  This cfg file is a text file and only contains "AutoUpdateDisable=1" on line 1.

The issue is that I'd much rather use SCUP to deploy Flash alongside Microsoft Updates, but with this process I don't know how (if possible) to either edit the MSI OR make it add the mms.cfg file.  Yes, I could deploy the file seperately, but would rather it be all one package to be safe.

I have found a couple of posts on how to create your own SCUP package, but the process was too complex for the techs that need to be trained on how to do this - just too many variables.

Any ideas?  Thanks!

Deploy flash as security updates with update check as an argument

If you can update the flash everytime with security updates then install them yourself. Rather than editing the MSI and creating a Transform, use ISCHECKFORPRODUCTUPDATES=0 as a command line arguement while deploying.
