Deployment Script: Adobe Shockwave Player

Topics: Archive - Deployment Scripts
Nov 20, 2013 at 9:16 PM
Hello All,
I just started working with PS App Deploy Toolkit and have very little Powershell experience. I do have a few years of application packaging and automating installations experience though. I really like this wrapper and am hoping this can become a good exchange of info for deploying packages so I am posting the packages I have recently worked on.

Please feel free to make suggestions on how to make this better...
  • Closes down IE, Chrome, and Firefox
  • Uninstalls previous MSI installations of "Adobe Shockwave Player"
  • Installs Shockwave with MST applied
  • Uninstall string for this versions GUID
    This script performs the installation or uninstallation of an application(s).  
    The script is provided as a template to perform an install or uninstall of an application(s). 
    The script either performs an "Install" deployment type or an "Uninstall" deployment type.
    The install deployment type is broken down in to 3 main sections/phases: Pre-Install, Install, and Post-Install.
    The script dot-sources the AppDeployToolkitMain.ps1 script which contains the logic and functions required to install or uninstall an application.
    To access the help section,
    Deploy-Application.ps1 -DeploymentType "Silent"
    Deploy-Application.ps1 -AllowRebootPassThru -AllowDefer
    Deploy-Application.ps1 -Uninstall 
.PARAMETER DeploymentType
    The type of deployment to perform. [Default is "Install"]
    Specifies whether the installation should be run in Interactive, Silent or NonInteractive mode.
    Interactive = Default mode
    Silent = No dialogs
    NonInteractive = Very silent, i.e. no blocking apps. Noninteractive mode is automatically set if an SCCM task sequence or session 0 is detected.
.PARAMETER AllowRebootPassThru
    Allows the 3010 return code (requires restart) to be passed back to the parent process (e.g. SCCM) if detected from an installation. 
    If 3010 is passed back to SCCM a reboot prompt will be triggered.
