EminentWare now offers pre-built and tested Adobe Air patches which can be easily deployed and managed with Microsoft’s WSUS or Microsoft’s System Center

EminentWare, a leading provider of add-on solutions for System Center Configuration Manager and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), today announced patch management support for Adobe Air. With EminentWare, companies can use Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) or Microsoft’s Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) to easily deploy and manage Adobe Air patches on servers and desktops across an IT enterprise from a central point of control. Adobe Air patches are provided as a part of the EminentWare 3rd Party Updates Pack which automatically provides customers with patches for many common 3rd party applications. Patches can be deployed using System Center Configuration Manager or WSUS. For more detailed information about the versions of Adobe patches provided by EminentWare, please visit:

To reduce performance or technical issues, many IT managers wish to turn off the “auto update” functionality in Adobe Air and instead perform manual updates. EminentWare delivers Adobe Air patches with the “auto update” functionality turned off. In addition, IT managers can use EminentWare’s PackageBoot™ technology to turn Adobe Air auto-updates “off” or “on” during the patch deployment process – no complicated scripting required.

EminentWare’s Extension Packs extend the power of Microsoft’s WSUS or Microsoft’s SCCM to provide added patch management control, configuration management functionality, and easy-to-use management and compliance reporting. Key benefits provided by EminentWare’s Extension Packs include:
