We have about 1000 users running Windows XP with Adobe Flash Player This version is vulnerable and I want to upgrade them all to version I found an uninstaller in the form of an exe files as well as an installer for the newer version in the form of an exe file. The problem is that I want to do this via a login script in a non interactive mode. Has anyone worked through this already? I was able to upgrade Adobe Reader using an MSI package but I cant find anything similar for Adobe Flash Player.

I figured this out on my own, turns out you need to register with Adobe to re-distribute the update. Then they will give you the MSI. Royal pain in the but if you ask me and I'm pretty sick of Adobe at this point. What is this the third time this year that they have released a critical securoty patch.
