uninstall previosu version of software via GPO
Posted on 2012-09-21
I created a GPO and it installs flash player 11.4 successfully on some machines, however, on machines with some previous versions of flash 10.x, the GPO doesnt install version 11.4. If you reboot the computer on the problemmachines, during the GPO appying computer settings you actually see "install adobe flash player active x 11.4..." but it doesnt install. In control panel the old 10.x version that was pushed out via that GPO is still there. I do not have the GPO or files\install for the 10.x version, it has been mistakenly deleted.
This is the error in the application log on the machine:
Product: Adobe Flash Player 11 ActiveX -- Error 1714.The older version of Adobe Flash Player 11 ActiveX cannot be removed. Contact your technical support group. System Error 1612.
Even if I try the manual uninstall from Adobe, I still cannot install version 11.4 from the GPO. Any ideas someone please?
Is there a way in the same GPO that I can uninstall the previous version of Adobe possibly? GUID?
Adobe - It shouldnt be this hard!!!
