Upgrading Flash Player - Problem removing V10


Trying to update 50 or so PC's with latest version of Flash Player using the MSI for GPO.

All machine have some version of 10.3.

I cant install the new V11 of the Active X plug in. It seems that the Version 10 flash has done some damage so cant be uninstalled through normal methods.

I have used the Windows clean up utility on a PC to remove Flash player 10, and then the GPO install of 11 works fine.

Does anyone know what the process is that the Windows Installer Clean up utility does so I can replicate it from a central script or GPO.

I would say it deletes any temp files, everytime we install anything a temp is stored in the TEMP folder usually hidden by windows, thes temp files may include msi installers
as you know there also the regestry keys.
Sometimes the tool that is uninstalled will also leave a folder with a .dat in programfiles. Or possibly windows.
But normally an update from Adobe removes the old and installs the new over it
The lastest version is Adobe Flash Player try installing the latest
