This is the command I use to deploy flash successfully.

Also I don't have to uninstall anything before deploying mine.

(msiexec.exe /i install_flash_player_21_plugin.msi /qn)

But if you still have issues....

Try creating a script to uninstall the older version and then

 reinstall the new one with the same command as above.

Flash have a removal tool on their website, to remove all

versions of flash from a machine.

its called .....uninstall_flash_player.exe.

So create a "verify" task to run the uninstaller.

Then create a "on success" task to install the new version.

I run a batch file like this when I have old instances that need to be removed:


WMIC product where "Name LIKE '%%Adobe Flash Player%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive

msiexec /i install_flash_player_21_plugin.msi /qn


If you want to skip the uninstall, remove the WMIC command in there
