I have a brand new surface RT and am trying to open an e-text book. it's telling me that I need an updated version of Flash, however, I try to click the link to get it and it's not working. It just takes me to a Flash problem solving page which I've checked and nothing applies.
I was under the impression that that model of Microsoft Surface does not support Plug-Ins. You will have to use a Microsoft Surface Pro.
To update Flash Player on Windows 8 you need to run Windows Update.
