I wish to prevent the Adobe Flash player from checking for updates on all domain computers. In principle it's as simple as creating a UTF-8 format file name mms.cfg in the
%windir%\system32\macromed\flash folder. (The file only needs the line
AutoUpdateDisable=1.) While this works fine via a logon script on XP and Server 2003 machines it's not working on Win 7 because of the UAC, which I'd rather not disable if practical.
I'm after a way to create/copy the file without user intervention, preferably at logon. Can this be done with a script, bearing in mind the target location, or do I need to create an MSI package and use GPO to install it, which seems like an awful lot of trouble to go through for such a simple thing?
