Silent Install of Adobe Flash

17 posts in this topic

I am trying to do a silent install of Adobe Flash. I have created a simple batch file to go to a particular server and share to runn the install for example "\\servername\flash\install_flash_player_11_active_x_32bit.exe" I cannot get it to run silently I have tried the /s switch, -install Any ideas would help. The batch files does run pauses at the license agreement.

Thanks.

5eraph I just tried your suggestion again. I placed the "-install" in separate quotes. Worked like a charm. :thumbup

I have a link saved for quite some time. I believe it's almost impossible to click through to that page normally.

http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html

I really despise web installers that are forced on you without the option to download full package. I suggest the msi version and just going msiexec /quiet /i install_flash_player_11_active_x.msi

Using exe files with -install switches works always fine for me!

Every option you could want is covered in their Administration Guide:

Search for "Adobe Flash Extract" to learn how to pull out the MSI packages, etc. from their Administrator's download. Sign up and they'll usually give you a site license to use it in about 5 minutes.

Well....I give you a different and easy option :

Adobe Flash Player

There you will find the .msi format also .exe

Try AFP.msi /qn /norestart

Good Luck.

/install is right switch to install flash silently. Use it with install_flash_player_ax.exe or/and install_flash_player.exe

Is there any switch I can use with msi installer that would let me disable automatic updates? I figured they apparently silently install Google Chrome and toolbar, which royally pissed me off.
