    How to install Flash player debug active X on Windows 8.1


      Seems like Windows 8.1 support is still a mess.


      First - On page http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html, at the bottom, there is a link

      "To uninstall Flash Player debugger on Windows 8, please go here" to http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows-8.html which results into Page Not Found!.


      Here is what I did so far:

      • Restart computer
      • Using the current uninstaller from http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html (yes, I know this is for pre Windows 8 but remember the Page not found), after shutting down all IE, it runs to completion without errors.
      • Restart computer
      • Run flashplayer_11_ax_debug.exe as administrator
      • I get a warning saying that IE will update on its own (I guess in release mode only) and a Quit button.


      At this point, when I go to the test page http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html with IE I get a grey box. No animation or error message.


      So far it does not work.

      Anyone aware of this?

      Anyone working on a fix?

      Time estimate?


      It has been a month now since a minor update to the Window 8 platform. Is this what we should expect now?
