Mass deploying Adobe Flash Player updates
Authored by: tom larkin on Jan 18, '11 10:52:13AM

I have not yet played with the Adobe deployment tools either. AAME is suppose to allow you to chop up and serve all your beloved Adobe products through enterprise deployment methods. I have had a terrible time deploying CS4, but CS3 when we had it ran smoothly. Being able to suppress the Adobe installer does wonders, as if a user changes their resolution to a non supported one Adobe CS products will still installer. Where as with the Adobe installer it will freak out and halt the install.

Maybe you could look into using AAME, but if I can get an installer I will use that. Otherwise your options are to capture a new flash install via a tool like Composer, or write some script to remove previous version and install this from the command line.

I just found this method to be super easy because all you need to do is grab the installer out of the Flash Package and you can toss away all the other Adobe junk.
