Understood. That's where I found the 11.2 installers that I tried. However, as far as I can tell, these installers do not include the Standalone Player application. Perhaps some releases include it and others don't. If so, how can I tell which ones have it so I don't need to try each of the 13 releases found on that page?
Flash Player has always been confusing in that the same name is used for an executable application, and a browser plugin (and an IE extension). I'm in need of the application. Should I be looking for something else on the archive page other than the Flash Player installer?
Download the 184.108.40.206 archive (159 MB); it contains flashplayer11_2r202_235_win_sa_32bit.exe (for Windows), as well as a Mac version.
Found it. Thank you.
I was expecting the installation process to create the Player inside the Flash / Players directory, where Version 10 of the Player can be found. I was also looking for it inside the 64 bit folder, where I was extracting the plugin from. Finally, the file name of the player blends in with the various installer and zip files. I didn't realize that "_sa_" indicated Stand Alone.
It's not very intuitive, but after this ordeal I'm unlikely to make this mistake again.
Thank you both for your help!
