I am in a UK school. We have just installed an older drawing package on Windows 8.1 via GPO using its MSI. Unfortunately this contained an embedded install of Macromedia Flash 8 (available to de-select in the manual install) which has installed something to make the Windows 8 built in Flash player not work (it is detected as an old version). I have now nobbled the MSI using Orca not to install Flash 8 and new installs are OK but I don't know what to do to correct the dozens or so of PCs installed with the original MSI. The drawing package uninstaller does not remove the flash 8 damage. The Flash 8 installer has clearly replaced a/some files and registry entries and they need to be "restored" with the originals. Does anybody have any ideas, or perhaps an old Flash 8 installer package I could try running to uninstall it, or a list of files/registry entries that Flash 8 has modified? Any suggestions gratefully received.
Microsoft embeds Flash Player for Internet Explorer on Windows 8.x. I'm actually a bit surprised that this old install was able to modify the version of Flash Player for Internet Explorer as those files are locked. Since Microsoft controls Flash Player for Internet Explorer on Windows 8.x I recommend asking your question on the pertinent Microsoft forums for Internet Explorer for Windows 8.x.
