Through research, I have not found any conclusive information for the requirement of getflash.exe and getflash.exe.manifest. I installed the ActiveX component installer only, deleted <getflash> files and all is well...
Macromedia's Flash Player 7 MSI only works when assigned per-machine, not per-user. They didn't mention this anywhere, although it appeared to me that the .MSI was set to User mode. Assigning/Publishing to users only brought up a "you need admin privs" error box. Per-machine assign worked fine for me via Active Directory.
I found that my MSI aware zenworks app would not install on machines where the user was locked down (even though the application was assigned to the workstation and not the user) I edited the msi file using Orca (msi table editor supplied by MS) and deleted the key 'LaunchCondition\AdminUser.' It then worked a charm.
