you can run a script customization while installing adobe flash player?

what I would have run these commands:

:: These lines delete the Adobe Acrobat Update Service
net stop AdobeARMservice
sc delete AdobeARMservice

:: These lines delete the Adobe Acrobat Update Service (older version)
net stop armsvc
sc delete armsvc

:: These lines delete the Adobe Flash Player Update Service
net stop AdobeFlashPlayerUpdateSvc
sc delete AdobeFlashPlayerUpdateSvc

:: This line deletes the scheduled task Adobe installs (against our wishes)
del /F /Q "%SystemDrive%\Windows\tasks\Adobe Flash Player Updater.job" 2>NUL

Sure !
You want to read the documentation about Custom Updates

Use :
  • Work with Services
  • Run Script

I have big problems with custom updates.

The update for Adobe Reader and Flash are executed properly. Custom updates not.

When I create a custom update the console and the windowsupdate.log report that there are no pending updates.

Any idea why? where am I doing wrong?

How update are reported in the console : "Not installed", "Installed" or "Not Applicable" ?

on almost all clinet reports:

status = Not Installed
Approval = Install

on the other, these are much less, reports:
Status = Unknown
Aprroval = Install

So most of your clients see that they need this update, but didn't download it from your Wsus.
Can you look at C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log to see if any error appears.

Try to launch manually detection, in command window, type : WuAuClt /DetectNow

I solved by restarting the service "Update Services" on the server.

How to add custom update a bat file?

In the options I only vbscript and powershell.

When I run the update with a bat file in the log file I get this error:

Running CustomUpdateEngine.ScriptElement
Running ScriptElement.
Running: C: \ Windows \ system32 \ Cscript.exe With arguments: "Java_8_40_Install.bat"
Exiting process with ExitCode = 1
End of ScriptElement.

actually the command cscript file.bat will never work.

I had to use the "Allow to execute a file" and not "Allow to execute a script"

Thanks for your help.
