Deploy Adobe Flash 10.1x with ARD

For some reason unbeknownst to myself Adobe decided to stop releasing flash player for Macintosh as a package sometime this summer. This is very inconvenient when trying to deploy the player on multiple machines in order to push patches to security holes in their software. With a little poking around I found that the package is in the download you just need to extract it. To do so…

1. Download the player from Adobe’s site
2. CTRL-Click on the file and choose show package contents
3. Open the “Contents” folder and then the “Resources” folder. Inside you will see a files called “Adobe Flash Player.pkg”
4. Drag/Drop or copy that package somewhere and use that to deploy the player with Apple Remote Desktop
