From the http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/ page, click the Different Operating System or Browser? link. From there you can select a Slim or Full installer for your OS (windows or Mac) and browser type (IE or Other). Bear in mind it is still not a standalone file that can be saved to disk, but at least a full install for those who prefer one.
@Fuzilla - My pleasure, glad I could help.
With a big website like adobe.com, a lot of pages are difficult to find, there are broken links and some are just dated. The page I posted is titled the 'Adobe - Shockwave Player Distribution Downloads' and links to current SW players but was written during the Macromedia days as a page for distributing the player. So, is not easy to find.
Even this forum has a dated name - Macromedia Shockwave Player - when the it has been clearly been renamed and rebranded as the Adobe Shockwave Player. http://www.adobe.com/products/shockwaveplayer/
Sometimes, it's easier to find Adobe stuff by searching outside of the adobe.com site. In another post, the question was asked about archives of the Shockwave Player. Looking around, I came across:
I used the following information from Fuzzilla:
System is: Windows XP service pack 3
idk if 64 or not
I just trie to downloaded the full version via your way and I received an error message:
UNABLE TO WRITE??
Unable to continue with the download
Do you know how to fix this issue??
That's Win XP 32bit.
Do the following:
- get the UNinstaller from here: http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates/#sp
- uninstall and reboot
- get the FULL installer from the same webpage and finish the job.
