    Installing Adobe Flash Player on W2K12 R2 without Desktop Experience

    bjackerman

      I am trying to get Adobe Flash Player installed using some type of stand alone installer rather than enabling the Desktop Experience feature of W2K12 R2. Enabling Desktop Experience had undesirable performance degradation, so I am looking to just run a stand alone installer.

       

      I've spoken with Microsoft and they say this is not a Windows limitation, but rather something Adobe is not allowing. I've tried stand alone instalers for Flash 11, 12, and 13. 11 and 12 saying IE already has Flash built-in and 13 finishes installing, but is not shown as a plug-in in IE.

       

      Has anyone had any luck getting Flash Player without Desktop Experience? Any thoughts are helpful.
