Have you tried enabling verbose SI logging to see what it turns up?

Yeah..that's exactly what I did - applied for license to distribute it, got the 
.msi file, and applied to Comp Config. I ran it on a test OU as well and had 
problems with it working. As suggested by Jamie Nelson, I transferred the 
install to the sysvol folder instead of a network share. I uninstalled Flash, 
booted up my test computer and it worked. I uninstalled it again; again, booted 
it up, and it again worked. So, I thought I had this licked. But, in beta 
testing on a couple other OUs, it's not seeming to work. I'm probably gonna 
give Adobe a call to see if they have any suggestions as well I'll keep you 
posted via the list here if you like...

Hi Shane,

The Flash installation for me has been, so far, very simple.

I'm only talking about the Flash Reader IE active-x plug-in though, not a full 
blown copy of the Flash developer.

I grabbed the distributable msi by applying for a license, created a 
per-computer GPO software installation, told it to uninstall if moved out of 
scope and left the rest at default. I didn't apply any transforms or 
application switches.

I assigned it to a test OU which only has a single workstation in and applied 
it to two groups we have, one for desktops and one for laptops. I have since 
gone through and given 'Domain Computers' 'Full Control' my installation files 
folder.

However, I have only done this on a brand new, fully patched version of XP SP3 
with minimal installations on it such as Office 2007, Acrobat, Java, etc.

I read a lot of problems on appdeploy.com about Flash installation failing if a 
previous version of Flash exists on the system. Everyone on there seems to have 
had to deploy Flash using a script which checks for Flash and runs an 
uninstaller first if its present. I expect I'll have these problems once I test 
this on an existing workstation with all the usual trash on!

I doubt this helps but hope it does.

Andrew
