  • installing flash player from CD

    I cant find this on the forum but maybe i am blind. I want that when they insert my CD it will check if they have flash player installed and if not then it will be installed directly from the CD. Most of the users will not have internet access. Anyone can give me a detailed way to do this?

    Thanx in advance
    Martin

    You'll have to visit Macromedia.com for details on distributing their software. No one but Macromemdia can legally give you permission or instructions on how to do that...

      Re: installing flash player from CD

      that's what i did. I now have a licensing agreement with Macromedia to distribute the player on my CD. Now back again with my question: I want that when they insert my CD it will detect if they got flash player installed and if not it will install it directly from my CD, by using the EXE (installer) that Macromedia gave me. Anyone can help me on how to do that?

      thanx

        What link did you go to get that from macromedia? I was reading in some previous post in regards to Acorbat Reader and it would seem you can use the same script for that action. If you do a search on Acrobat you should find it. I'm almost thinking you can also use a file.open and point to your .exe file for the users to install it. my 2cents worth anyway..

          Re: installing flash player from CD

          Martin, the easiest way to detect Flash version is to use the %FlashVersion% variable. Here is the info from the help file:

          %FlashVersion%
          The version of the Flash control (e.g. "6.0.23.0") currently installed and registered on the user's system.

          If the Flash control isn't installed or registered on the user's system, this variable will contain "0.0.0.0".


          You can use this variable in an IF statement and then run the Flash installer from your CD-ROM if it is not installed.

            Thanx a lot Brett!
            For "Pagedown" here is the link to license the distribution of the flash player.

                This would make an excellent knowledge base article including that link.

                    um ... either yu made some typos or yur Actions are incomplete.

                    How about copying the Actions and pasting them in here as xml so we can see what yu have, for real!

                          You could try something like this, excuse my code its alway a little rough, but it should give you the idea.

                          Change the %Flashversion% > 7 to > 6 I only used 7 to test.

                          Have fun.

                            Do you put this action on a page( on initialize) or on a button(on mouse click) ?

                              Hilight code - Copy -
                              Open new page on the On Initialize Action - Paste

                              Looks a lot simpler when it's pasted in. [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
