Flash Player Network Install

If you are looking to keep up with flash player updates on your network, it is worth signing up to the Adobe Runtimes / Reader Distribution License Agreement


After signing up to this, you will receive an email from Adobe providing you with links to download exe and\or msi installers for the following...

Adobe Flash Player
Adobe Reader
Adobe AIR
Adobe Shockwave Player


For Flash Player, I mainly use the EXE installers for both IE and Plugin-based browsers, installation for requries the following command

install_flash_player_11_active_x_32bit.exe -install    (IE)
install_flash_player_11_plugin_x_32bit.exe -install    (Firefox etc)

While deploying Flash Player, you will probably also want to disable the flash player updates notification prompt. To do this you need to create a file called mms.cfg this file needs to be saved in UTF-8 format. (use Notepad++...its worth the download!)

Within this file you simply need to put the following line

AutoUpdateDisable=1

You then just need to copy mms.cfg to the following location

Windows XP, Vista and 7 (32bit) 'C:\WINDOWS\System32\Macromed\Flash\'

Windows 7 (64bit) 'C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\'
