I found some tips elsewhere and wrote this script to install Flash on our Macs.  When a new version comes out I just apply the same exact script to the next version and it updates the existing systems.  Today I changed the 15 in the version number to 16, still working.  I named the script file FlashInstall.sh and I've overrode the default install with the command "sh FlashInstall.sh"


curl -o flash.dmg "http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/mac/install_flash_player_16_osx.dmg"

sleep 20

hdiutil attach ./flash.dmg -nobrowse

sleep 30

/Volumes/Flash\ Player/Install\ Adobe\ Flash\ Player.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe\ Flash\ Player\ Install\ Manager -install

sleep 120

hdiutil detach /Volumes/Flash\ Player/

Use the MSI or EXE. Doesn't matter.
There is no switch to disable auto update anyway.
For this the easiest is to make a script that first installs the Flash Player then create/overwrite the MMS.cfg in the flash directory.
Here is my batch file I used:
msiexec /i "%~dp0install_flash_16_active_x.msi" /qb!
xcopy /C /Y "%~dp0mms.cfg" "%windir%\System32\Macromed\Flash\"
I did try to add the mms.cfg in the MSI but; or I got a failing MSI or the MMS file got overwritten by the default version.
