    Flash 13 EOF yet??

    canalbi Rookie

      Certainly Flash 13 is considered EOL by now? We found a couple of users still stuck on this old software when Flash 18 is already out. We really would like Shavlik to detect it as EOF and upgrade them to a newer version.

          Hello,

           

          We tend to support a product as long as the Vendor supports it and releases patches for it.  I found this on the Adobe site: (Released 7/8/2015) Flash Player 13.0.0.302 (172.62 MB)

           

          It seems like Flash 13 is alive and kicking.

           

          You could use the software distribution functionality to update Flash to later versions on all of your systems. 

           

          Thanks,

          Charles

              Hello,

               

              Edit:  It looks like we already have the latest version of Flash in our data.

               

              APSB15-18

              QAF1800209N – Flash Active X for IE 18.0.0.209

              QNFP1800209N – Flash Plugin 18.0.0.209


              Qnumbers that end with an N are Software Distribution type patches which will install the product if is it not already installed.


              Try performing a Software Distribution scan against one of your machines that has Flash 13 installed on.  Create a new Scan Template, don't filter anything and enable Software Distribution scanning.  A link to the guide is in a previous post.

               

              Thanks,

              Charles

                What product will this appear as? Adobe Flash 18 or Windows 7?

                  Hello,

                   

                  For the Flash Software Distribution type patches, they would be listed under OS's.

                   

                  Thanks,
