    need to detect version of Flash Player ActiveX installed in windows 8

    AdamScheblein Level 1

      My enterprise (for better or worse) uses add/remove programs to determine the version of flash players (activex and plugin) installed on a machine. With Microsoft taking over the ActiveX package for Win8.x, we've lost the "add/remove programs" (aka "programs and features") entry for flash player for IE. Now, our counts are inaccurate because I know that every Win8 client has flash player activex, but a) it's not being counted, and b) we don't know what version is on a machine.

       

      We can look for the current Microsoft update KB number for flash player activex, but that changes every month, which requires engineering on our side and we don't have that bandwidth.

       

      Anyone have any ideas?

       

      Thx,
