    I am looking to deploy Adobe Flash player and Shockwave to my netork
    computers. My users do not have admin priveleges on thier PCs so they can't
    do the updates themselves.

    I have MSI and Exe files from Adobe as well as permission to deploy to my
    network. I just can't figure the best way, and then how to do it.

    I am running SBS 2003 and windows XP clients. I can use AD or GPO depending
    on which would work better.

    I need to be able to install with elevated priveleges so the updates will
    take, but not permit my users from doing it themselves.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Excellent to hear :)
    Hi - try posting in microsoft.public.windows.group_policy - you might also
    crosspost to microsoft.public.windows.server.sbs. You'll want to use MSI
    files and group policy, I suspect.

    create a zap file first. google it

  4. Hello Sean,

    If you have a .msi file you can do it via software distribution in the computer
    configuration part. Assign it and the installation will run with SYSTEM rights
    and so there is no need for users to be an admin.
