Will users who do not have admin rights on their computers be able to upgrade to new Flash player version by themselves? I know on Linux, at least, you do not need admin privs. On Windows, I think there’s only the option of doing a system-wide install so you need Administrator rights. Installation of Adobe Flash Player may require administrative access to your PC, which is normally provided by your IT department. I think it’s safe to assume they do as they’re both system-integrated installers.
If you use the script, you can run it as anybody with execution rights. On Mac there is a directory for browser plugins. Mac that browsers search their plugins in that folder. That means if I put it into the System’s Library folder, all users will have the plugin, if I put it into my folder only, only my user has it. On Mac almost any app or plugin could just be shipped as a file. And the installer wants to put it into the System’s Library folder for all users AFAIK. For Windows: yes you need admin rights for the system to install flash player.
I just managed to get it working for a Mac OS X without admin rights. Download the installer from Adobe and make sure to save it somewhere, rather than letting it automatically open. Unzip the installation archive and you should end up with “Install Flash Player 10” mounted. Check inside that, but instead of opening “Adobe Flash Player. In the folder that pops up, open Contents and look for archive.
