Hi all,


Let me share a simple way to have the latest Adobe Flash Player in Win7 PE or other similar environments. This method is very simple and doesn't require to rebuild your project. Proceed as follows:


1. Download the latest Flash Player packages for the browsers your prefer:
 - For the Internet Explorer

 - For Chromium-based browsers (PPAPI)

 - For Firefox & Opera (NPAPI)


2. Put the downloaded package(s) in a folder on your WinPE thumb drive, let it be F:\PETOOLS\FashPlayer
3. Add the commands to your project startup corresponding to the Flash packages you have choosen:
cd Y:\PETOOLS\FashPlayer
start /wait install_flash_player_ppapi.exe -install
start /wait install_flash_player.exe -install
start /wait install_flash_player_ax.exe -install

This batch assumes that your thum drive letter is set to Y: on boot. 

The "-install" command line switch will tell the packages to perform a silent installation. 

Voila! On boot the Flash Player will be installed in your WinPE system. When a new version of the Flash Player is out, just replace the files on your thumb drive with the newer versions. 

The only con of this method is that the PE system boot time will increase a little. But in most cases it is not critical.
