We have about 350 computers that have different versions of flash installed. I have downloaded the unisntall files from here, created a deployment to the computers. However, it doesn't seem to be unisntalling the program. 

 

I have both Windows 7 and various versions of Windows 10 that I need to remove this from. Is there a better script and specific flag that I need to set in my software when i deploy to these machines?

I am using Desktop Central for my software deployments.

The windows uninstaller is posted at https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html

 

Note that Adobe's Flash Player uninstaller does not remove any browser-embedded version of Flash Player.

  • For Chrome: Per Google's Chrome Flash road-map Flash support was removed from Chrome in Chrome 88, released Jan 19, 2021.  Upgrading to Chrome 88 will remove the Chrome-embedded Flash Player from the system.
  • Windows 8.x/10: Microsoft has released an update, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4577586/update-for-removal-of-adobe-flash-player, to remove the IE/Edge embedded Flash Player ActiveX Control. Please read through this document carefully before doing anything.  This support page has a link to the Microsoft Update Catalog, which contains 43 different files for the different Windows versions and architecture.  Make sure you download the correct file for your Windows version and architecture.  If you experience issues with this update, please contact Microsoft as it’s their update, not Adobe’s.

Silent mode information is in the Admin Guide section I referred to in the previous post.  Please read through the Admin Guide for information on accomplishing what you are attempting to do.
