    Connect is a server based product, so other than having Flash Player 10.3 or newer on the computers you manage you shouldn't need to push anything. If the users need to share their screen they will need the add-in, but they will be prompted to install it when needed, and once it is installed, they shouldn't need to re-install it. If you need the installer files for the Add-in, you can find them on the Getting Started page for your server, or you can find them here: http://www.adobe.com/support/connect/downloads-updates.html#meeting-ad d-ins

    I recall that this has been attempted in the past, though I'm not sure to what level of success... Here are a few threads that addressed this deployment need.

     

    http://www.connectusers.com/forums/topic/4541/installing-the-connect-a ddin-using-windows-installermsi-packets/

     

    http://www.connectusers.com/forums/topic/1404/connect-addin-per-user-o r-per-computer/

     

    They are older threads, but they all come to the same conclusion, that it cannot be easily done. There may be a solution or tow in these threads though.

     

    It may also be worth reaching out to support to see if they have put a solution together since 2010.

    Hi,

     

    I would recommend contacting support on this as well. We do support large-scale deployments of the Add-in using Citrix's XenApp solution and a tool called the Adobe Connect "Add-in Checker" which is available with all on-premise (non Adobe hosted) deployments.

     

    Here were the steps to accomplish this with XenApp for Connect 8, the steps should be the same for 9:

    AFAIK, customers have used the Add-in Checker to deploy en-masse over different environments, but I haven't helped anyone in that situation directly, only XenApp users.

     

    Incidentally, without the add-in checker and just focusing on the Add-in executable...you can use flags like /SP-, /SILENT, /VERYSILENT, /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES to eliminate user prompts when installing the add-in, eg. "setup.exe /VERYSILENT".

     

    Hope this helps!
