    Flashplayer autoupdate does not work on windows 10

    Petr.Egorov Level 1

      Flash Player Plugin for Firefox browser. Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB.

       

      I use an internal update server with a silent autoupdate configuration file. Configuration file (mms.cfg) looks like this:

      AutoUpdateDisable=0
      AutoUpdateInterval=2
      SilentAutoUpdateEnable=1
      SilentAutoUpdateServerDomain=fp-update.company.local
      SilentAutoUpdateVerboseLogging=1

      It works great on Win7, but does not work on Win10. All conditions are true: service and task is present, all files in SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash are present.

      Task does periodically start with no errors. But update do not happen for some reason. Even no logging.

       

      Update only happens, if I run the task manually from Task Scheduler OR if I run the service manually from Services.

       

      How to reproduce:

      1. Install older version of FP on Win10.

      2. Create mms.cfg file with the similar content in SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash directory.

      3. Wait for autoupdate - it will never happen.

      4. Run the task or service manually - update will happen, plugin version in Firefox is updated.
