Uninstaller for Adobe Flash Player products

With the end-of-life of Adobe Flash Player coming up soon, it would be very useful to have a 'patch' that will uninstall any installed Flash Player plugins.

    Hello, this is sort of a known issue. The IE version technically should not be installed on any systems with Windows 10 or above, so the uninstaller fails to remove the product because it has a blocker that stops it from running if running on Windows 10.

    The uninstaller appears to successfully remove "Adobe Flash Player (Non-IE) 15.0", but leaves its ugly cousin "Adobe Flash Player (IE) 15.0" behind. Known issue?

    Thank you! Yesterday evening I did the orher way round because I've already noticed that with "install" it does not work. Waiting for Intune to notice that my PC is in the scope.

    Hello,


    This should be deployed as an 'Uninstall' in ConfigMgr, or Intune.

    I've just published it as "install" in Intune, waiting for my computer to pick it up and act (installed some flash player for testing). Has somene already done it?

    No update for this on the Intune side, it should be pretty easy to package the uninstaller as a workaround for now.

    Is there any update on the package for this?

    We ran into some technical issues when trying to create the uninstaller for Intune and ConfigMgr, we will need to make some changes internally in order to support this scenario for Intune and ConfigMgr. I do not have a timeline on those changes yet.

    Do you plan to release it for Intune?

    It should not require reboot, unless Flash is running somewhere. We do have it set to kill the major browsers if they are running and the right-click option is set to kill processes.
