Have a look on AppDeploy.com.
Does anyone have any links to the Admin Installs for these not the web based install.
I need to push these out via GPO but for the life of me I can;t find them anywhere.
And pointers gratefully received.

Have been on the phone to Adobe and it seems that you have to apply for a licence to do bulk/network installs.
The players are still free but you can only install under licence, once you have applied they then provide you with the links for the admin / stand alone versions without all the bloat ware that is included in the web download.
I do remember having to do this a few years ago for Adobe Reader.Your license term is one (1) year from the date you accepted the agreement. You must apply for a new license at the end of that term should you wish to renew.
As of 11/16/06, the Player Distribution License agreement has been updated to include Vista as an Authorized Operating System. Licensees who have executed an agreement prior to 11/16/06 and who now wish to Microsoft Windows Vista must execute a new agreement.
You need to visit Adobe.com licensing and "apply" for a free license to distribute the players across your intranet. Signing up and approval takes about 5 minutes, after which you can download MSIs of the Flash and Shockwave players. These packages can then be installed as per normal using GPOs. And unlike most packages I have tried on the network here, these ones actually work!
D'oh! You beat me by a matter of seconds!
one thing i will say about this i the shockwave deployment dont work and adobe will not tell you how to do it as it breaches secuarty ?? anyone intrested say and i will post the email they sent.
I'm Interested ( email away ) or is that pm away ? either way lol

ok i will post the email the sent me.
and then i tried everywhere with no luckDear Mr. alonebfg(changed),
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.

Have you googled for them?
The shockwave installer works for me and lots of others. If it doesn't work for you because of your "choices of security settings" that definitely is your problem i.e. the above would be better stated as "adobe will not do your job for you".adobe will not tell you how to do it
... so does any one know what security setting is making it bork?
http://www.adobe.com/licensing/distribution/ is the link you are all looking for. You just fill in the form and away you go
"distributing" flash was the search term I used on their site. :P
The version that I downloaded, post if you are desperate to know the version, works fine... there was an issue with the version before this.
After downloading both Flash Player 9 and Shockwave I have published them via GPO and all works fine for me.
ok but when you deploy via gpo which is what i did it would not install even if i logged on as a administrator. so i stll have not found out what the problem is i will try the new version perhaps that might work.(by the way not getting them to do my job for me just som help would be nice by the people who make the product.)
I need this can you email me pleaseOriginally Posted by gecko
