Funny, the connection is not a download it is

Installation problems | Flash Player | Windows
There is not a download on that page
Use the StandAlone Flash Installer.
Adobe has stopped offering its standalone Flash installer as of July 2013 and the download links on its Flash Troubleshooting pages are now bad links. But since the last archived version is the same as the current version (ver.11.8), it can be currently be downloaded from two different webpages:
1. http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/ (easier to find the right download)
2. http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions. html and download the right one for your device and system. For Windows it is Flash Player 11.8.800.94..(link is: http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/installers/archive/fp_1 1.8.800.94_archive.zip). It is a zip file that has more than you need so unzip it, then open 11_8_r800.94_archive>11_8_r800_94 and then copy-paste the right program to a real folder outside the zip file. If you use IE then use either the winax.exe or winax.exe version, otherwise use the the win.exe or win.msi version.
JUST WHERE EXACTLY did you get this false information that Adobe stopped offering the offline installer?
Post a link to the exact page and text that confirms this from WITHIN THIS SITE. I don't want to see it from some "rumormill" forum.
