Flash not getting installed on client PC - pushed from the window 2008 GPO

Hi

We use windows 2008 AD and XP. I  have assigned   the  Flash msi through the GPO in the past . Normally when the client PC  on the our network was  switched on it used to install the  flash before the loging screen prompt could appear .

Now after assigning the latest version of flash and when i booted the client PCs , the flash is not getting installed now .I rebooted the  Client PCs serveral times and the also did an GP update on both the server and the client,  and the flash is not getting  installed.
How do i trouble shoot this,  as why the client not installiing the flash , which is pushed from the GPO.

Thanks

Hi

I forgot to mention that I came across this problem only when users said that their PCs were prompting for Flash. when I logged in as a admin and went to the control panel to check the flash version. The old flash which was previously installed through GPO was had been completely removed. I don't know how this happened.

So that where I deleted the old flash  version which was on the shared folder and downloaded the new version to this folder and assigned the Flash through GPO asking  it to assign from this folder.

I checked the event viewer On the client the following are the events which I observed

Type: Error
Event: 101
source : application management
Description: The assignment of application adobe flash player11 ActiveX from policy adobe deployment failed. the error was: the system could not find the file specified.

Type: error
