Hi

I need to roll out the latest version of Flast to 100 desktops in an AD environment.

They haven't got SMS which I have used previously so wondered what the easiest way to roll out Flash to all the machines is? Is it possible to do it through GPO with a silent install and if so how?

Thanks

Mike

Full disclosure, we also use a  software deployment solution Altiris in our case so I haven't tested this.
It looks like you can get an .msi for flash so that is good so you don't have to package it

Then from there you can use group policy to install.  I'd test on a few machines first

In order to deploy Flash Player, you must first acquire a license to do so. Distribution licenses are free of charge and can be acquired through the online licensing application.
