Flash Player 18 not uninstalling 17.x or older versions during upgrade
09/14/2015 2486 views
I always use the same way to install acrobat flash. I download the flash msi from adobe and run the update using the command line options:
MsiExec.exe /i "C:\temp\AutoInstaller\FLASHIE\full_flashplayer_win.msi" /qn
When running this command it installs version 18 which is fine, but does not uninstall any older version that was previously installed.
In the past when updating to a newer version using this method the older version would automatically be removed.
Is there a new command to update and remove rather than just installing the new version?
Thanks for your help!

Easy. Just create a transform and add an entry in the RemoveFile table to delete the folder '%Systemroot%\System32\Macromed\Flash'.
