With the launch of the silent background updater service, I'd like to create an mst that accepts the default answer of installing updates silently in the background for the flash player plugins.
Does anyone have any idea of how to do this or whether it is possible, especially as I assign software to the computers so I need to answer any interactive parts of the MSI in the MST before deploying the software.
Just create a transform manually. The only thing in the transform should be to install mms.cfg to the correct location. The mms.cfg file will contain the settings for the updates.
My problem right now is that 188.8.131.52 does not seem to grey out the 'change update settings' and 'Check Now' buttons with 'AutoUpdateDisable=1' in the mms.cfg file.
http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplayer/articles/flash_player_admin_gu ide.html should contain most of the information you are looking for.
I had to do this in two parts. Firstly I deployed the MSI of 184.108.40.206.
Then I created a startup script .bat file for the computers being deployed to which contained the following:
xcopy "\\server\software\Adobe\Flash 11\mms.cfg" "C:\WINDOWS\System32\Macromed\Flash\" /o /y
xcopy "\\server\software\Adobe\Flash 11\mms.cfg" "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\" /o /y
The mms.cfg that is copied to the local machines contains the following:
This seems to work as I have checked the machines deployed to as they now look like this:
