authplay.dll still here after quarterly??

Apr 12, 2012 8:44 AM



despite this announcement psb12-08.html


even  in the Acrobat 9.5.1 folder I am still seeing the dangerous file authplay.dll with the old flash 10.3!!!!



You did announce that 9.5.1 will share the flash from the OS!!


I am worried,

thanks a lot in advance for your suggestions.


best regards,

    Good day,


    I have confirmed with David Leone, the author of that blog post that:

    Authplay.dll will continue to be installed and used for trusted content only (i.e., for Adobe-generated content, like UI elements). So you’ll continue to see it as part of the install.

    What this means is that embedded Flash content that users add to their PDF files will render with the Flash Player from the OS, not the authplay.dll component installed with Acrobat.


    Please let us know if you have any additional questions.


    Kind regards,
