    GPO Flash Install mixed versions of Flash

    jasonsurname

      Hi,

       

      I have (about 600) Windows 7 client machines and a Server 2008 environment. We have a mix of Flash versions. Some installed by GPO and some installed manually. Some are up-to date (Version 15) and some are Flash 11.

       

      Is there a way to get all client machines to version 15 by GPO.

       

      If I create a new Flash deployment package (V15) will it update the older versions or install side by side, i.e run a old version with the new version... or will it go horribly wrong :-(

          Hi Jason,

           

          Only one version of Flash Player for ActiveX (for IE browsers) or Plugin (non-IE browsers) can exist on a system, therefore, if you deploy and update to machines with version 11 those machines will be updated to the version you deploy to.

            Thank you...

             

            will this still work with the machines that have had it deployed via GPO. My other problem is my original MSI package is missing from the deployment share... so I would like to deploy version 15 to all machines by update and enforce the setting i.e noupdate?

              As it stands:
              I have previous deployed versions of flash 11 with the MSI missing from deployed share.
              Some machines’ running version 15 installed by a local admin.
              I’m trying to get all machines on version 15 via GPO and managed again by GPO.

               

              Sorry if i did not make myself more clearer.

              Thank you in advance
