user rights

Our school has recently provided each student their own username and password, but now i am stuck with the task of installing flash for every login. I know there is an easy way for this without giving them all Admin rights. Any ideas? thanks,

Hi.

Please be aware that Adobe flash has established an update service that uses system rights to install updates. So after setting it up once, it should keep itself up2date on its own no matter if admin or not.

If you need the download link for the distributable MSIs: see http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html , it has both for IE and "plugin-based browsers" as firefox.

There should be two versions of flash player. Active X and Plugin. I would think the plugin should work for any browser on the machine.

For flash 10 but it's the same for all versions - http://forums.adobe.com/thread/847684

Just get the plugin and you'll be fine - You can apply to distribute here - http://www.adobe.com/products/players/flash-player-distribution.html

IE Sux!!! ~ GrizNation

Typically, that's only true if you have watched too many Justin Long commercials.  We have had IE9 installed throughout several large domains for over a year, and it has consistently been quite stable & secure.  If you have it configured properly from the very beginning, you shouldn't have any significant problems.  In contrast, Firefox has only recently started to overcome their overt problems with memory leaks.

Regardless, you shouldn't need to Flash "for every login."  Once it's installed on a Windows 7 machine, it applies to every user profile.  As others have already said, install both the ActiveX and Plugin versions to have both browsers covered.

hahahaha true @ Run5k. I was just taught by instructors that firefox was preferred by most Techies in 05 so i just kept with firefox ever since. I guess things have changed for the best for IE. thanks, Ill try .

IE sucks plain and simple.  You can lock it down and what not with GPO's but it's just always so problematic.  Google Chrome is the way to go.

I'm sorry, but in my experience most of the arguments against IE don't actually elaborate and/or articulate more than this.  Not exactly the most compelling counter-point.
