    Updating Flash Player even though it is updated


      Good day,


      We are using a deployment tool called Asset Core, I already pushed the updated version of the Adobe Flash Player today which is Version

      Upon checking our Firewall here, the most used bandwidth comes from the Adobe Update. Why is this happen?

          Hi gab0280,

          Flash Player, by default, is configured to check for updates at a predetermined time.  Based on your comments, and the fact you're deploying Flash Player using client management software, it sounds like you want to disable this update check.  If so, you'll want to deploy a custom mms.cfg file with the setting AutoUpdateDisable=1 (the default setting is 0).  The mms.cfg file is located at the following location:


          Windows: Assuming a default Windows installation, Flash Player looks for the mms.cfg file in the following system directories:

          • 32-bit Windows - %WINDIR%\System32\Macromed\Flash
          • 64-bit Windows - %WINDIR%\SysWow64\Macromed\Flash
          • Note: The %WINDIR% location represents the Windows system directory, such as C:\WINDOWS.

          Macintosh /Library/Application Support/Macromedia


          Several of our enterprise customers who wish to disable auto-update deploy a custom mms.cfg file immediately after they deploy Flash Player to their client systems.


          The Flash Player Administrator's Guide contains more information for Administrator's who deploy Flash Player within their organization.
