Deploy Adobe Flash 13 and AIR 13

Adobe released Flash Player 13.0.0.182 and AIR 13.0.0.83 today. Check out the changelog to see specifics on what was fixed as well as new features.

Of course you can deploy Adobe Flash and Adobe AIRboth of these products using PDQ Deploy. The pre-built packages are ready to be downloaded from the Package Library. Here are some points to remember:

  • If a target computer is currently running an Adobe AIR app the upgrade will probably fail with error code 1. If this happens you can either ask the target user to log off or you can deploy the Log Off Users package. 
  • If you want to update Flash Player for IE on Windows 8 or 8.1 targets then you will need to deploy the Adobe Flash (All IE) package. This requires PDQ Deploy running in Pro mode. (Screenshot below)

If you have PDQ Inventory you can use Collections to find which computers you need to deploy Adobe AIR and Adobe Flash. If you have an Advanced / Enterprise subscription then these collections are already built and are available in the Collection Library. (Screenshot below)
