Flash player 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I want to sequence flash player 10, now a couple of questions rise:

    - we have the latest internet explorer in the image of the machines (is it useful to sequence flash player 10  then ?)

    - how to change the installpath of the player to the Q drive of the sequencer ?  (msiexec ?  the exe or the msi ?)

    grtz. Pvds

  • Hello,

    Flash Player 10 is a different application than Internet Explorer. Incase  you meant that you have the latest Flash Player installed on the OS-image - I would see little use to sequence it.

    It is not necessary to alter the installation-path to sequence an application, see this article for example;
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932137

    Unless you have a very specific need, plugins that are commonly used seldom offer any benefit if they are sequenced.

  • If you virtualize Flash Player, you will need to deliver a separate Internet Explorer shortcut that brings the IE into the Flash Player package - users won't be able to just open IE and use Flash.

    Install Flash to the default install location, don't worry about installing to the Q: drive.

  • When sequencing using the 4.6 SP1 sequencer - choose plug-in or add-on as the type of application. At the configure applications phase, add a shortcut to Internet Explorer
