    Just as an update for you Chris...

    I've been trying that util and found that like many of the later posters on the linked thread, it doesn't work so it's not quite the nirvana i was hoping for.

    Thanks for the link all the same as I'm sure it'll be useful for legacy stuff but for newer installers, it's next to useless.

    could be although I'm starting to suspect permissions and security patch issues given some of the programs I've tried it and Cmenu on..

    None could be recognised... very odd.

    Re: Is there a working Shockwave MSI?

    I know this is a bit late in the day But i have been in contact with adobe refrance the above problem and this is there answer

    Dear Mr. ?????????,
    After considering your issue with regards to the shockwaveplayer distribution i regret to have to inform you that we do not support this particular problem as this concerns choices of security settings at your own school.
    You could try to find an answer to your particular problem in the instructions which came together with the msi' or you could try to get feedback from persons at the online forums at adobe.com or visit http://www.adobe.com/devnet/ for the developers network. I wish you good luck with the issue.
    Yours Sincerely,
    Antoine van Heck
    Adobe Technical Support
    I have since found out it might have somthing to do with explorer settings so i am still testing but hope to have a answer soon (maybe)

    Per AppDeploy, under CustomAction, if you change the target in setPROFILE from:

    [%APPDATA]\Macromedia\Shockwave Player\

    to:

    [AppDataFolder]\Macromedia\Shockwave Player\

    it'll do what Adobe/Macromedia intended during a GPO install.

    I have noted that the fix works great for IE, but doesn't install the plugin for Firefox. Others have noted that they were unable to get the MSI to work, but I'm kicking it now, so we'll see.

    I have a copy of the shockwave MSI that i have had deployed for a while now and it has worked fine ver 10.1.4.020. I remember altering the msi with Orca to iron out a couple of errors and i'm sure i remember turning off the Auto Update Service. I'm now trying to deploy 10.2.0.023 and again it works fine but i can't find where to turn off the auto update so at some point no doubt it will be prompting the students.

    Anyone know where to edit the msi to stop this?

    Oh it all comes flooding back. It sets an entry in the HKCU registry so in the end i had to change the default profile.
