We are pushing Adobe Flash Player v12 via Group Policy/Active Directory. When the PC tries to install you get the following error in the System Log:

The assignment of application Adobe Flash Player 12 ActiveX from policy [policy name] failed.  The error was : %%2

We've never had issues pushing Adobe products out before. Any idea why this isn't taking?

Some guys said that if they set the Startup policy processing wait time to 20 or 30 seconds the problem didnt happen.
