Further testing has shown me that if I enable auto updates manually through the control panel applet, the flash update service and task are installed.
I only have options in my mms.cfg file to enable auto update and silent update. Is there more I can add to it that will install the flash update service and task as well?
To sum up my issue:
Deploying mms.cfg file through group policy to enable automatic updates after initially disabling during installation.
Settings in mms.cfg file are successfully enabling automatic updates. However, the updater service and scheduled task are not being installed.
There doesn't appear to be a option for mms.cfg to enable the service and the task. Is there possibly a seperate script I can create and run to accomplish this task?
Any insight is appreciated.
I solved it.
Run FlashPlayerUpdateService.exe from a command line located in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\ (64-bit) or C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\ (32-bit) with the -install switch.
This installs the flash player update service and the flash player updater task.
Thank you Process Monitor!
