How do I install a previous version of Flash Player

Dec 24, 2010 3:09 PM

I need to restore a prior version of Flash Player. I found the web site that has the archived versions of Flash Player but I don't know what to do after I download the archive.

    Basically you uninstall the currently installed Flash Player, then extract the version you want from the archive and install it.

    Maybe you need to supply more information

    - what is your operating system & version?

    - what is your web browser & version?

    - what is the file name of the archive you downloaded?

     

    P.S. and what is the Flash Player version you want to install?

    Maybe it would be easier if you just did a System Restore to a point before you did the upgrade.

     

    If that is not an option, to install 10.1.82.76 run flashplayer10_1r82_76_winax.exe (ActiveX for Internet Explorer) or flashplayer10_1r82_76_win.exe (plugin for other browsers).  Don't forget to uninstall the current Flash Player before attempting to install an older one.

     

    However, maybe the problems with your current Flash Player can be fixed without going through all these troubles; what exactly are you experiencing?

    I see; that is a rather strange problem - I have no idea how to resolve that.

     

    What I would do if I were you; rather than going back to an older Flash Player version, I would try a newer one. Flash Player 10.2 (beta) is available from http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html

     

    But if you want to go back to your previous FP version, the easiest way is to do a System Restore, as suggested in my earlier reply.
