    Flash Player Enterprise Deployment via SCUP / SCCM after changed download page behaviour?

    rolfhasselbusch

      Dear Support,

       

      we have a Client with 15000+ Computers for which we provide Flash Player updates via SCUP / SCCM.

      Our current procedure is that we download the SCUP Catalog from which we get the MSI Installers, then we publish those to SCCM and deploy them to the Clients.

       

      After reading your announcements here: Adobe Flash Player Distribution | Adobe and here Adobe Flash Player Distribution | Adobe we are not really sure what the future way of getting and deploying updates is and have a few questions:

       

      1.) Does Adobe provide the download of a SCUP Catalog after the Change of the download page (22.01.2016?)

      2.) Does the SCUP Catalogues contain the links to the MSI Installers as until now?

      3.) Do we have to create a Adobe ID for the above steps to work

      4.) Do we have to apply for a license to distribute Flash Player the way described above?

      5.) Is there a cost factor with getting an Adobe ID and/or a license or is it free of charge?

       

      Due to the short-term changes in your Service, i woul be grateful for a quick Response so that we can inform our customers.

       

      Best regards,

      Rolf

          Hi rolfhasselbusch,

           

          Adobe will continue to provide the SCUP catalog for Flash Player after the change noted in the current distribution page.  You will need to obtain an AdobeID to download the files when the change is made.  Answers to your questions:

           

          1.) Does Adobe provide the download of a SCUP Catalog after the Change of the download page (22.01.2016?)

              YES

          2.) Does the SCUP Catalogues contain the links to the MSI Installers as until now?

              They will continue to include the links to the MSI installers

          3.) Do we have to create a Adobe ID for the above steps to work

              YES

          4.) Do we have to apply for a license to distribute Flash Player the way described above?

              YES, distribution requires, and has always required, a license to distribute.  if you do not currently have a license, please apply for a license.

          5.) Is there a cost factor with getting an Adobe ID and/or a license or is it free of charge?

              It depends as certain situations do have a cost factor.  If you have questions, you can contact an Adobe Mobile & Devices representative.  This is noted in the Adobe Flash Player Distribution | Adobe page.
