Roger, I greatly simplified the process of install flash, that includes full uninstall, and clean install for windows 7, its scripted in BAT , I put together a video walk through of everything here:
You need the uninstaller from here: http://download.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/support/uninstall_flash_player.exe
as well as the three files from the bottom of this page: Installation problems | Flash Player | Windows
Put all the files including the BAT file in the same folder and the script does all the work
You can get it from the links in the video
This will work for Windows 8 for Firefox flash player and Chromium based flash ONLY IE is built into the OS from 8.X and up
Carm01, Thanks ?
However you missed the point.
I am not nor do I need to use your "awesome tutorials" for Win 7.
I will just go to the http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.htm which loads in any OS and Browser to download the full installation versions for the Flash Player and the respective browsers.
I wanted the automatic browser detection to stop which restricts the Flash Player version to the browser type and you cannot download any other Flash Player version while using a specific browser. i.e. you cannot download the Flash Player for IE while using Firefox !!
- Got it
and someone from Adobe is going to come on here and tell you about posting that link for enterprise environments and licensing, like they told me, I have been aware of that link for YEARS,
So if you read this on that page :
In order to distribute Adobe Flash Player you need to have a valid Adobe Flash Player Distribution License Agreement in place. Click here for details.
Then you would know why it is NOT posted, but i guess you didn't see that part?
Here are links for end user flash installs that we can post freely slick:
Thanks for reminding me Carm01,
About the "valid Adobe Flash Player Distribution License Agreement in place." I have and also cover 3 other Adobe products - Thanks
- Reading the agreement it does not mention that I cannot post the URL in a forum.
The End Users would in most instances not get to the "Installation problems | Flash Player | Windows" page and doubt if they would find it.
- I was also aware of the page.
All this still does not directly resolve my download problem and it would be easier if the Browser detection was removed or the options in the "Installation problems | Flash Player | Windows" to download the full installations for the respective browsers were given, i.e. the Flash Player for Internet Exporer - ActiveX and the Flash Player for Firefox - NPAPI or the ability to download the "flashplayer18ax_fb_install" and "flashplayer18_ha_install" executable files.
- Why restrict a browser from downloading anything is the point !
- Would you not agree ?
you are right, it does not, but i was told in one of my posts about it js
