Adobe Flash Player Removal

Let’s understand the Steps to manually import, deploy Adobe Flash Player removal Updates using WSUS and ConfigMgr. Microsoft announced Adobe Flash Player will go out of support on December 31, 2020. The decision to end support for Adobe Flash Player was made by Adobe.

Microsoft confirmed the support for Adobe Flash players ends for Microsoft Edge,  Microsoft Edge legacy, and Internet Explorer 11 in December 2020.

Introduction

Microsoft released a standalone package for Adobe Flash Player removal updates for Windows operating system.

  • After installing the update, this update cannot be uninstalled
  • Microsoft currently not aware of any issue in this update, that means, no issue reported as of now by other companies/vendors
  • The Adobe Flash Player removal update is not published in Windows Server Update Service (WSUS), they are planning to release the update in early 2021

Microsoft releases individual updates that are not part of the WSUS catalog especially the software that is out of support similar to Adobe flash player removal updates. In this scenario, we need to import the updates into the WSUS console using the Windows Catalog website.

Microsoft released an Adobe Flash player removal update in advance of the end of support to help customers to Test and validate their environment for any upcoming impact in application support.

NOTE! – To support such customers, the application requires Adobe flash player, it will be considered as a third-party plug-in and Microsoft will not provide support for the issues.
