Yeah, that's why you would do it as a machine-assigned software
install...It will have admin rights because it is running at NT
AUTHORITY\SYSTEM.

Thank you Jamie...I got the msi download and will try it out. I'm not
sure it'll work as I'm reading on the site that local admin rights are
still needed, but we'll see...

There is a Flash Player ActiveX MSI package available through the Adobe
Distribution program. It's free but you have to signup. Push that out
through machine assigned software and you should be good to go.

Hi All...

I'm not sure if any of you experienced this in the past, but there was
an Excel spreadsheet that was being passed around via email that had
games inbedded into it using Flash (Ms. Pac Man, Galaga, and a couple
others). As such, we used GP to not allow users to be able to use Flash.
Since there hasn't been a problem with that lately, and the fact that
more and more websites are using Flash we have come to the point to
allow Flash again. We disallowed it by setting permissions on the Flash
folder using GP. I have since changed the permissions accordingly, but
am still having a 2nd 'ary problem. When going to a site with Flash,
users are prompted to download Flash, by getting the ActiveX bar at the
top of their IE window. They click on it and prompted to
download/install Flash but since they're not local admins (only power
users) they still can't see the web page correctly. Is there way using
GP to allow ActiveX to automatically install (which may be a risk) or
any way around this that you guys are aware of?

 

Thanks in advance!
