    How are you getting your EXEs for IE?

    Thanks for the install script above.

    Edit: found them

    Uninstaller:
    Uninstall Flash Player | Windows

    IE:
    http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get..._player_ax.exe

    Non-IE:
    http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get...ash_player.exe
    If those are the redistributable installers you are breaking the terms of the adobe agreement by posting them.

    I don't beleive they are, but I'll edit them out of my previous post.

    The Flash msi links are found within the forums, fyi.

    There's a really easy way to tell which links are which. As you can see below, the filenames are slightly different and the redistributable version includes "licensing" in it's URL. You therefore don't need to worry about SLMHC's links.

    Code:
    Redistributable Links (edited by me)

    If you look at the checksums though, you will notice that the installers are identical whichever method you use.

    Bleh, most recent update seems to have done this on a lot of computers here. Annoying considering I've been using the MSI for a few years now. Sigh! Will take a look at the scripts in the morning.

    Try redeploying an earlier version to see if it installs on a test PC, and then deploy the latest version after it.

    That has seemed to work for me, if I check the event logs I still have the error but Flash is installed and is the latest version. But if you check add remove programs there is two instances of Adobe Flash, one without the red icon, which if you try to uninstall fails with the same error.

    Just tried the latest version and still getting the Error 2753.The File 'InstallAX.exe' is not marked for installation. it's really annoying now even after running clean up tools removing AV. It's like they just cannot seem to design a MSI file properly.


    Our solution was to use Wininstall LE and take a snapshot of before and after install, then rebuild a msi package. We have now managed to get it deployed but there is another problem. IE8 is now whining about flash running because of the protection mode. Nothing ever seems to be simple, you would think in this day an age that these companies would actually work with each other.

    I came across this and sorted it today by:
    Uninstall all from add/remove..
    downloaded and ran the adobe_uninstall_tool.exe
    reinstalled older 10.0 (revision {7145A744-C77A-4FE8-BA94-061EC41FEAEC})
    installed "Adobe Flash Player 10.1.53.64" without removing the previous

    his time the installer ran through fine without the error.

    Good luck

    We use the MSI versions and have had this problem. Adobe needs to fix their MSIs.

    I figured out the solution recently from reading Adobe forums and doing some testing.
    Most of our computers were fine but some had problems with Flash Plugins and some with Activex and some both.
    The best way I found to fix a computer or set of computers is to first uninstall all Flash and then note all remaining Flash entries in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products.
    These entries can vary based on what versions got corrupted on your systems.

    What I pasted below ended up being the fix for us for both Flash Plugin and ActiveX version. We tested it and had great success as a .reg file and are now deploying it via GPO.

    (We had 4 defunct registry entries for Flash plugin and 3 for Activex)

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\371245C90F69D 5349AC564C8AA7CE50A]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\6205276E056AC 94498B76D7B5AEE0A85]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\6F8CE5C1F5C5F 12458EB19B9D5C0DAC4]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\FB0D7F53BA803 E244A30FA7927CA12A6]

    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\30D9D84132D5F 4D45B0DAB06034CD5FC]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\C460100B160DE AB4091314A638D85563]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\4E867BFF724E3 554CB631AF1E5269AD4]

    (if you copy and paste this remove the spaces added to the middle of the lines which the forum does for some reason)

    Thankyou tacktick, that has done the trick for us. Had to add a couple of entries but on reboot of the clients, Flash successfully installed to the latest version using GPO Application Assignments.

    Saved me a lot of headaches.

    Not sure if anyone has noticed, but the ActiveX version of Flash Player v10.3 now only supports Internet Explorer v8.0 or above.
