Does anyone know how to go about getting the Flash Player(s) that's built into the CS5 IDE updated? According to System.capabilities.version, it's running v10.1.52.14 which, according to this page on the Adobe site, says was a pre-release version of Flash Player and should not be used! It also seems to have an annoying bug where HTML tags are frequently shown as raw HTML, rather than being rendered, which makes testing stuff in the IDE a real pain.
Please run the updates from here
p.s. if you found this post helpful, please mark the thread as answered.
Hi and thanks for the response but unless I'm missing something there's nothing on that download page that will update the flash player that is built into the IDE i.e. the one that's used when you run Control > Test Movie.
I've replaced the players at C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS5\Players\FlashPlayer.exe and C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS5\Players\Debug\FlashPlayerDebugger.exe and installed the content debugger activex and plugin - however, the version I get when I run 'test movie' in Flash remains obstinately stuck at 10.1.52.14
If I publish a projector .exe from flash that is now the latest version but that seems to have been the only change.
Thanks for the response but that page only explains how to uninstall the browser version of flash player. What I need to do is to be able to update the version of flash player that's built into the Flash CS5 IDE. I know this is possible but I believe it may well require a specific update from Adobe to address that.
I may well just have to end up emailing Adobe support but thought I should at least check on here first to make sure I wasn't missing anything obvious.

Hi and thanks - but as mentioned above I have tried all those links and - unless I'm missing something - they still don't replace the flash player that's part of the IDE. I DID manage to get it to update the version of the player that's published when you create a projector file but that's it.
Hi, old thread but i was wondering if someone managed to update the built-in player? Is this possible? I have CS6 with built-in 11.2 flash player and want to use the new 11.4 features and it is frikin annoying to open in a browser every time i export the swf...
