Adobe Flash and Adobe Reader msi packets

Some quick info about getting Adobe Flash and Adobe Reader installers in msi form for distributing in AD by GPO.

Adobe Flash
Get msi installer here:
For silent install from command prompt use commands like:
start /w msiexec /i \\server\path\install_flash_player_10_active_x.msi /quiet this is plugin for IE
start /w msiexec /i \\server\path\install_flash_player_10_plugin.msi /quiet this is for Mozilla like
Additionally you may want to delete logs:
del /f /s /q "%windir%\system32\Macromed\Flash\*.log"
And to disable auto update you need create mms.cfg file with AutoUpdateDisable=true contents for this.
echo AutoUpdateDisable=true> %windir%\system32\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg"
Or use GPO Preferences for creating such file

Adobe Reader
Get msi installer from ftp here:
Additionally you need CustomizationWizard for customizing installation settings
Using it you open msi file, tweak some settings, and get transformation mst file. Already tweaked my mst file you can get here
For silent install from command prompt use something like:
msiexec /i "\\server\path\AdbeRdr1000_ru_RU.msi" /qr TRANSFORMS="\\server\path\AdbeRdr1000_ru_RU.mst"
But msi and mst transforms better suits GPO software distribution or SCCM :)
