Thanks Jamie...I added Dom Comp's to the share I wanted the install to pull 
from, but that didn't work (and I enabled the other setting within the same 
GPO...both without success). I'll try the sysvol solution and let you know.

Thanks!

We just had a weird question like this on the board a few weeks ago and the 
person fixed it by putting the MSI (in this case for the Office Compatibility 
Pack) in the sysvol share. Before you do that, try the following:


1.       Make sure the “Domain Computers” group has explicit “Read” permissions 
to the share where you placed the MSI

2.       Enable “always wait for the network at computer startup and logon”

I am assigning it via Comp Config.

That is only when you “advertise” software to users. Are you doing it that way 
or “assigning” it on the computer side (Computer Configuration) of the GPO?

OK…well, after testing this solution…it seems the application does indeed 
install, but is not fully “activated” for use. A local (or domain) admin needs 
to log onto the PC and still install the ActiveX component from a site using 
Flash Player. Once that’s done, all other users are able to view flash-enabled 
programs or websites. Am I just missing something? When looking at software 
assigning at MS, this is what they said: The core application is not installed 
until the user activates the application on the computer by one of three ways: 
selecting the application from the Start menu, clicking s shortcut on the 
Desktop, or by activating a document of a file type that is associated with the 
application

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!
