The following process has been tested and confirmed as working with Adobe Shockwave (Version: 11.6.0.626) and SCCM R2.

It does the following tasks:

  • Installs Adobe Shockwave silently
  • Removes auto update feature

 

  1. Download the latest install file from http://www.adobe.com/go/sw_msi_installer
  2. Create a text file called install.cmd and copy in the following information
@echo off
REM  Installs Adobe Shockwave Player and disables autoupdate checking -  27/07/2011
cls
echo --------------------------------------------------------
echo .
echo .
echo .      Installing Adobe Shockwave Player
msiexec.exe /q ALLUSERS=1 /m MSI7PMSD /i "%~dp0sw_lic_full_installer.msi"

echo .      Disable Auto Updates

reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AppDataLow\Software\Adobe\Shockwave 11" /v AutoUpdate /t REG_SZ /d n /f
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AppDataLow\Software\Adobe\Shockwave 11" /v AutoUpdate /t REG_SZ /d n /f

REM Return exit code to SCCM
exit /B %EXIT_CODE%
  1. Copy the installer file and install.cmd to your software package share
  2. You can now create your SCCM package or deploy the software by using install.cmd.
