Half in jest all in earnest

Or you could just deploy Chrome which keeps its own copy of A-Flash up to date.

But, yes, OI VEY on the Adobe CS (or anything) installs. I go round and round on this with a friend at Adobe. As an Admin, products should use the platforms installers so I learn and use one on windows, one on mac, two or so on linux, etc. I don't want to learn and script a deployer for each and every epithetical piece of software I have to install.

Yeah but every company likes to write their own installer. I used to support Autodesk products, and they have their own set of deployment tools, but at least they used MSI files so it was pretty easy to network deploy Auto CAD, Revit, Inventor and so forth because you just needed to add them to the payload and the rest was done via MSI.

Adobe installers are pure junk and I hate them.
