Manual Flash Player Download

Jun 18, 2008 6:13 AM

I have a Dell Dimension 8200 with windows XP Pro (SP3). i would like to update to the latest version of flash player.

Question: I would like to manually download the latest flash player so that I can install it after disconnectiing from the internet and disabling my security programs. Is there a manual download web site available for me to access?.

Question: Do I need to uninstall the existing flash player on my computer before installing the new version or will the new version of flash player install on top of the existing version on my computer? If I need to uninstall the existing version, I would appreciate the instructions for accomplishing this action.

Thanks, Sam.

    You can download the executable installer from here:

    The executable installer is about ½ way down the page:

    Instructions for uninstalling and reinstalling the Flash Player:

    1. First download the uninstaller to your desktop from here

    2. Before running this uninstaller be sure to read the instruction and close all running programs.

    3. Run the uninstaller

    4. Install the Flash Player

    5. Test the Flash Player here:

    This is to Darren McNally from Adobe. I have tried every solution shown here in the last 2 days and I still can't get Flash Player back up and running. I completely removed the previous versions, but when I go to the download screen, select the large block to download the file, the system tries for about 15 seconds, then says "DONE" down in the status bar and nothing ever happens. I do not have any access to any Flash content and have not for over 2 weeks now. Please help me.

    Hi hodgestl,

    We really need more information to help you troubleshoot this issue.

    Have you opened a support case with Adobe yet?

    Are you referring to the executable installer found here:

    What’s the operating system?

    What browser?
