    Flash Player Package on CC4

    I'd like to deploy Flash Player (showing as Flash Player 11.3.300.262 from the Adobe distribution page), but the latest package blueprint from RM is only for version 11.2.202.235. I can't find anywhere on Adobe's site to download this older version, so what are my options? Can I hand-build a package for the later version of Flash Player in the usual way? or, where can I download the older version so I can use the blueprint? What does everyone else do?

    If I remember correctly there is a version of Flash you can get off Adobe that comes as a premade MSI (so nothing fancy to do) - have a hunt around and you may find it

    Unfortunately, when it comes to blueprints, especially with Adobe, you need to grab it while you can, even if you're not planning to install it straight away. The way that it's licensed means that you have to apply for a licence to distribute the software, so even if you could download it from somewhere else, you would be in contravention of the licence. I guess you have two options really, apply for a licence and download the latest version usng the link that they send you or wait until the next blueprint comes out. (Or the third option is to just stick with the version that you currently have).

    If you apply for the distribution licence you get a link to an msi version right?

    Right, yes I can see the msi version on the download page, so I can just build a package from that and ignore the blueprint...seems like I could have saved myself some time if I had just done it myself instead of trying to use the RM blueprint.

    Thanks guys.

    I just import the msi into the console, check the package properties and deploy.

    Have you applied for the distribution licence, as if not you will be creating the package illegaly.

    Heads up ... there's a new blueprint now released on the RM website for version 11.3.300.257.

    Get it whilst it's still there.
