We now have installed Flash32_26_0_0_151 with -au 2 what means no autoupdate task and disabled update in mms.cfg.

How can we switch to background autoupdate without installing new flash?

mms.cfg

SilentAutoUpdateEnable=0

AutoUpdateDisable=1

no scheduled task created.

Thank you for the additional information. Unfortunately, Flash Player was deployed in an unsupported fashion with the -au 2 option, resulting in the required Background Update task/service not being created.  To remedy this, either modify the Update options via the Flash Player Settings Manager (on each individual machine) or deploy Flash Player again and deploy a custom mms.cfg file with Background Updates enabled by adding the following entries to the mms.cfg file:AutoUpdateDisable=0SilentAuto...

Please provide the following information:

  • When 26.0.0.151 was installed:
    • How was it installed (what deployment method)?
    • What installer was used (Windows EXE or MSI, Mac DMG or PKG, something else)?
    • How was updates disabled at install time (e.g. mms.cfg file, command-line arguments, something else)
  • Are you attempting to enable Background Updates by editing the mms.cfg file?
  • What operating system, including version is this on?

Thank you for the additional information.


Unfortunately, Flash Player was deployed in an unsupported fashion with the -au 2 option, resulting in the required Background Update task/service not being created.  To remedy this, either modify the Update options via the Flash Player Settings Manager (on each individual machine) or deploy Flash Player again and deploy a custom mms.cfg file with Background Updates enabled by adding the following entries to the mms.cfg file:

AutoUpdateDisable=0

SilentAutoUpdateEnable=1

The supported workflow to disable Flash Player updates when distributing via SCCM or other software deployment tool:

  1. Deploy Flash Player EXE (without any -au option) or MSI
  2. Deploy the mms.cfg file disabling updates:
    AutoUpdateDisable=1
    SilentAutoUpdateEnable=0
  3. Then, to reverse and enable Background Updates, deploy an updated mms.cfg file with the following update settings:
    AutoUpdateDisable=0
    SilentAutoUpdateEnable=1
