Use the Package Download Assistant to download the Adobe Flash update files. Then use the Publishing Wizard to copy the installation file and update definition to the WSUS server.

To publish the Adobe Flash updates:

  1. In the left pane of the Patch Manager console, expand Administration and Reporting > Software Publishing.
  2. Select Adobe Packages.
  3. In the center pane, select the Flash Player <version> ActiveX package you want to publish.
  4. In the Actions pane (right), click Download Content.
  5. Click OK.
  6. In the Package Download Assistant window, double-click the download link.
  7. Download the archive for the version you want to publish.
  8. Extract the contents of the archive to your local computer.
  9. Return to the Package Download Assistant window, and then click Import Source.
  10. Browse to the folder that contains the file you want to import, and then click Open.

Note: The file you select here must match the update you selected in Step 3. The Package Download Assistant provides the correct filename by default, so you do not need to select the file after you browse to the appropriate folder.

  1. Click OK.
  2. To view the files you imported, click Refresh in the Actions pane (right).
  3. Select the Flash update packages you want to publish.
  4. In the Actions pane (right), click Publish Packages.
