Check you settings on those machines and enable background updates. 
Or 
Could you push out the upgrade with Apple Remote Desktop Task Server? 

You probably could use dsh also. 
I use that to manage our linux lab. 

I bet cluster ssh would do the trick too. 

These are all opensource and simple to learn how to use. Therefore, you can save the cost of hiring out. Ask google, and ask youtube. 


Like, Eric mentioned though, if this is only needed for a browser you shouldn't need to update if you are using a good browser. If this is for other programs, I would just enable the auto update. Have it run when the machines are set to auto shutdown for the night.

If you are using Chrome, doesn't Flash get updated automatically? And Chrome updates itself without Admin intervention?

I have been told about Munki for managed software installation of Flash, Shockwave, etc., but it is beyond my comfort zone.  I plan to explore it with outside tech support this summer.

All,

I'm running a Macintosh network, and whenever a new version of Flash comes out, every single Mac computer needs to be upgraded to the latest version of Flash. Users do not have access to install the update. Why does Flash go from working to NOT working just because an update comes out? Is there a way to configure Flash to continue working with an older version? In the past, new versions of Flash would be released but the computer would keep working with Flash content. I'm not interested in buying Caspr or another program to keep the computers up-to-date.

Thanks,
Bryan
