I was able to sign in with user name and password to this "discussion area" of Flash Player. However to upload newest version it doesn't recognize either and won't let me sign in. I've reset both....been confirmed on my e-mail that new user and pswd are recognized. HELP!
You DO NOT need a username or password to "download" Flash Player. You DO need one to install it after downloading, but that's NOT an Adobe ID. It's your system username and password and those NEED to be an administrator (whether you use Windows or Mac).
Download the Adobe Flash Player installer directly by clicking one of the following links.
