    Admin Install for new adobe Flash player 9?

    I found the below and updated my machine manually, does anyone know if there is a admin install for GPO deployment yet? Or has anyone deployed/created a custom one?


    Adobe's Flash Player allows you to view interactive web content like games, business presentations, advertisements. The package includes only the Flash Player and is a stand alone installation. Technically, this is a Flash Player ActiveX Control. It will only play the file through your Web browser.
    Flash is the world's most pervasive software platform, reaching 97% of Internet-enabled desktops worldwide, as well as many popular devices. Since it is free of the design restrictions of more traditional Web display options, you can use it to clearly and exactly express your brand and company identity.

    I had to update my version of Flash player to make some Nelson Thornes software work last week. I downloaded the new re-distributable version and it was version 8 still.

    There are two MSIs, one is for Mozilla:

    and one for IE:

    http://download.macromedia.com/get/f...r_active_x.msi

    Adobe now has an uninstall utility that will cleanly remove old versions of Flash Player.
    -------------------------------------------


    Run the uninstall utility prior to your Flash Player V9 installation. I have successfully uninstalled these versions of the Flash Player on a Windows XP SP2 machine:

    Flash Player 6.0.84
    Flash Player 8.0.22
    Flash Player 8.0.24

    Note: The utility closes open Internet Explorer Browser windows as part of its process
    -------------------------------------------

    I used a batch file (see below) that checks for Flash Player, runs the uninstall if needed, followed by the Flash Player 9 install. This worked fine for me.

    -------------------------------------------
    REM This command uninstalls Older version of Flash. It then installs Flash Player V9


    :CHECKFLASHLEGACY
    REM This will uninstall a legacy Flash Player
    if exist "C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\flash.ocx" (goto DELETEFLASHLEGACY) ELSE (goto CHECKFLASH8X)

    ELETEFLASHLEGACY
    uninstall_flash_player.exe /silent

    :CHECKFLASH8X
    REM This will remove an advertised version of Flash 8
    if exist "C:\WINDOWS\Installer\{6815FCDD-401D-481E-BA88-31B4754C2B46}" (goto UNINSTALLFLASH8X) ELSE (goto INSTALLFLASH9)

    :UNINSTALLFLASH8X
    uninstall_flash_player.exe /silent

    INSTALLFLASH9
    msiexec.exe /i install_flash_player_active_x.msi /qb

    :EOF
