    Please Help how to silently install flash player in browser

    jibysk
      Hi all,

      Please help me ...?

      How can I install flash player plugin (version 8 ) in browser without
      downloading setup or redirecting to macromedia site if flash plugin is not
      available in browser

      I mean silent flash plugin installation in the IE browser,without
      redirection or downloading of exe setups and with no popups, is there flash
      AS or java script for that.

      Actually i want the client who see the particullar flash site could silently install flash plugin in the IE or any browser.


      Thanks

      Warm regards

          that *should* be impossible, and is certainly illegal. You cannot install an application or a
          pluggin on someone's machine without their consent.
          Some people do not want to have the Flash player installed on their computer, and even though I'm
          not one of them, I would be extremelly pissed if I found out something was silently installed on my
          machine without my knowledge.

            Check this out:

            http://blog.deconcept.com/swfobject/#expressinstall

            If you modify the code on this page slightly to:

            if (ExpressInstall.needsUpdate) {
            ExpressInstall.init();
            }
            // if expressinstall is invoked, stop the timeline.
            stop();
            }

            You will achieve what you are looking for.

              hi

              Dont misunderstand me and what i mean is make the client stay in there page without going macromedia site for installing flash player, ofcorse i encorage the securiy warning box given by windows ( for IE ) for installing flash player.

              thanks
