    Flash 9.0.115.0

    So who has the problem of flash not working? It's getting annoying because teachers use websites for the kids lessons like teach-ict.co.uk, youtube etc. and it doesn't work.

    SO the new flash came out and I thought it would fix the problems but it is exactly the same.

    I used the RM blueprint package thingy and everything!!!

    Has anyone got this problem and do you know of any software conflicts?

    By the way, I took flash off the machines before installing the new one. It's rubbish!

    I once found that the cachepilot here was blocking flash content websites. I never got tho the bottom of that one.

    do you not neet to remove the old flash first then install the new one? Im guessing you used the msi file?

    yeah msi's all around.

    When we visit a webpage it tells us that the latest flash isn't installed (when it is).

    Wondering if it anything to do with Macromedia Studio 8...

    I started getting this on PC's with Adobe Master Collection CS3.

    I don't use RM though, I'm using the MSI's I obtained straight from the horses mouth (Macromedia).

    On the PC's it does happen on, Flash ends up appearing in A/RP 2 or 3 times... which is totally wierd - but I just ignore it at the moment. I've classed it as "non-critical" and it fixes itself too after a while...

    When you install studio you can choose wether to install flash with it. We didn't and have never had any problems.

    I've got two Flash player packages to install on my system:

    install_flash_player_active_x.msi
    install_flash_player_plugin.msi

    I assume one is for Mozilla/Firefox, one is for Internet Explorer.

    Hi

    I had a major problem with flash once I had with drawn the old msi and deployed the new one. For some reason it busted every flash install in the school.

    I withdrew the new msi and deployed the old one but still no luck. We ended up having to visit every pc in the school oh what fun.

    ah ha...

    1 solution = use the msi you can get off the adobe website... never use RM's!

    works nicely.

    at last!!

    Not sure about the 115 version but the one prior to that is causing me headaches with one specific bunch of PC's... suspect a sound card driver problem but hard to prove at this point...

    We had the same problem - flash 7 wouldn't update to 9.0.47.0 even when using the package blueprints. There's a patch included in one of the SPs that actually prevents removal or upgrading of any flash player components. My guess is that you have that deployed to main site. RM told me it applies a registry lock. Well I never did find out what that meant but removing the patch didn't do the trick by itself - you have to remove it and rebuild the machine, only then will flash install okay. I verified that by rebuilding a machine without removing the patch, no flash. The patch in question is KB913433, I think.

    Right... so in that case given that I'm using nlite, RyanVM, etc... to build a single base RIS image for all my machines I'm going to need to remove that patch from the whole process...

    In a word "bu**er"
