    Hello, if you go to the following link with both Internet Explorer and Firefox (or Opera), you should get the correct installer automatically.

     

    http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer

    someone at Adobe has to try to download flash - the download times out - it has been timing out for some time now - at least a week or more.  Problem has nothing to do with installing flash - we just can't download the software.  Try it for yourself.  Somebody fix it please.

     

    Same problem with reader - had to switch to foxit because I couldn't get adobe software downloaded.

    I have just downloaded all four Flash Player installers from the link I posted above; each of them took less than 1 second to fully download.

     

    I also just downloaded Adobe Reader from http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise/ - it took about 8 seconds to complete the download.

     

    Note that I am about 8,000km away from the Adobe/Akamai download servers.

    Once again, the download links for the offline installers are here: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-pla yer-windows.html#Install_in_a_firewall_proxy_server_environment

     

    This is under Install in a firewall proxy server environment in the Installation Problems document.

     

    What versions of Flash Player do you have now installed?  Please check in the Control Panel's Flash Player appled (Advanced tab).

     

    P.S. the Adobe Reader link I posted earlier was in response to the other poster's complaint that all Adobe downloads time out.

    Can you post the contents of the FlashInstall.log file in C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash ?

    Your install log file is showing some errors; can you try a clean install according to http://forums.adobe.com/thread/928315

    Did you get the latest Flash Player 11.2.202.335 through the background update?

    It is my experience that the updater comes up twice: the first time for IE, then an hour later for the plugin.

     

    Depending on how busy the servers are, the updater may not succeed at the first try.

     

    If you don't get updated within a few days, please post your FlashInstall.log file again.

    The updater will automatically run every hour, but may not be able to download the update when the servers are too busy.  You will not see anything when the updater runs (it runs completely silent in the background).

     

    You can use this same topic to post the new log file.
