Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater
is a software updater for Adobe’s Flash Player
Adobe frequently releases security updates to fix the latest security vulnerabilities.
However, Flash Player’s out-of-box updater uses long time intervals between update checks.
Most endusers do not bother to configure the internal updater – they run outdated Flash Player versions.
Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater was developed to offer an easy to use application for inexperienced endusers who do not want to bother with updates.
It can install updates with no user interaction required and thus keep your system secure without bothering you.
Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater offers many features for single- and corporate users like automatical update checks with a custom time interval.
Also, it allows corporate users to use a remote configuration and thereby avoid configuring every single client.
Another feature is the configuration of administrator credentials required for the installation – Alternative Flash Player Auto-Updater stores them, the users need not even know or enter credentials.
