I have a large desktop that needs the new Flash Player. However, I am in the country with only dialup. I can take my laptop to the library for fast Internet. Is it possible to download the needed flash player software onto a thumb drive and then transfer that to the desktop. I've downloaded the install file but it gives me no location choice when it begins the install. Working with windows 7 on both machines.
Yes, you can save the offline version of Flash Player onto a thumb drive and then copy/move it to a computer to install it. The version downloaded from get.adobe.com/flashplayer is what we refer to the online installer. It's a shim installer that then downloads and installs Flash Player silently. The offline installers are posted at the bottom of the Installation problems | Flash Player | Windows page in the 'Still having problems' section. There are various installers for various browsers. You'll want to download the file(s) corresponding with the browser(rs) you use.
