What changes do I need to make when I create the MST file for Flash 18

I have the 2 MSI files for Flash 18 (Active X and Plugin), now I have to create the MST file, what do I need to change in the MST file? I have the mms.cfg file with the AutoUpdateDisable=1.

I opened the MSI with Orca then when I create a new Transform where do I make the changes there, I tried to go through it but it's just too much info.

I think I am missing something in this process

Thank you in advance for the help.

This file mms.cfg - is it already in the installation, or you need to add it?

Thanks for all the help. I'm new to this position. So I ended up using Orca to open the previous MSI and applied the MST then I could see all the changes made. 1 under Checkbox, 3 under Property so I created the new MST from the new MSI using Orca with the same properties.

So now I am wondering what is the mms.cfg used for if I am using a MSI and MST?

Thanks again.

You did not answer my question. Was mms.cfg present already in the original MSI installation?

I had the file but I asked "So now I am wondering what is the mms.cfg used for if I am using a MSI and MST?" I don't think it was used when I used the MSI and MST?

mms.cfg is used by Flash itself, not by the installation. It can be installed by the installation, or it can be created later. If it's installed by the installation, it will be easy to to modify it. If not, adding it to the installation is much more difficult. This is why I asked if this file is present in the installation.

Since the author accepted comment that was not really a solution, here's what would need to be done.

1. if mms.cfg was already included in the installation: create administrative installation, then hack mss.cfg in it.

2. if not - need to adjust several tables in the installation, and include mms.cfg itself, which is also easiest by administrative installation.

or: use group policy to deploy just the file, separately from the installation. http://ivan.dretvic.com/2012/05/how-to-deploy-mms-cfg-config-file-to-your-adobe-flash-player-clients/
