Hi, I have been trying to update Google Chrome with the new Adobe Flash Player 11.6.602.168, however every attempt has failed with the error message: "Timeout" or "Cannot contact reliable source" at 47% completion (The installer jumps from 7% to this error).
I have searched the net for solutions however all links concerning uninstallations, offline installers, etc. can either not be accessed or download. This is very frustrating. There is nothing wrong with my internet connection, I have 20Mbs on speedtest.net however the attempt to download a 685kbit uninstaller or offline installer simply fails.
ie. This was a link to an alternative installer supplied by a mod on another, older post: install_flash_player.exe 0.0/15.7 MB, 4 hours. But the download refuses to progress, it stays at 0.0 and there is nothing wrong with my internet connection.ie.
: uninstall_flash_player.exe 71.0/685 KB, 17 minutes. Fails to progress and lingers on that 71 KB.
I use Windows 64-bit and use Google Chrome however this problem appears on Internet Explorer as well.
The link to the offline installers can be found at http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html#mai n-pars_header
The uninstaller link can be found at http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html#main_Download_t he_Adobe_Flash_Player_uninstaller
I just downloaded the uninstaller and the two offline installers; the uninstaller took less than 1 second, the installers took about 5 seconds each.
This is slower than usual; normally the installers also download within less than 1 second.
But since we are both outside of the US, me in Japan, and you somewhere in Europe, the connections to the various locations may make the difference.
My suggestion: try again today.
P.S. Chrome uses its own Flash Player version; you cannot update it using normal means.
