    How do you disable the Flash player auto-update feature?

    David J. Level 1
      The reason why I want to disable this is because my client does not have admin privileges and gets the autoupdate feature dialog box. Since they are at an enterprise level company, only the IT people can have the privileges of updating the player.

      After scouring the web, all I could find is this html doc:

      http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=16701594

      describes how an IT person can disable the auto-update feature via mss.cfg file, but this is not what I need.

      I looked at the flash security white paper in versions 7,8, and 9 ( http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplayer/articles/flash_player_8_security.pdf, http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplayer/articles/flash_player_9_security.pdf) which mentions

      FlashPlayer.autoUpdate

      Is this actionscript code and how is it used? Like this: FlashPlayer.autoUpdate = false or: FlashPlayer.autoUpdate(false)

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thx,

      David
