    Flash Player direct download URL for older versions

    Johnny Quest

      I need to update ActiveX from v10.x to a later version the current standalone installer (v24.x) will not even start on XP SP2 no error message and no window. I know older  v19.0.0.185 works with a standalone ActiveX application I am using on another XP SP2 machine. I know v19.x is no longer supported nor is this platform, I do not need to be told to update to SP3 and of security risks - I already know this.  I just need to get this old machine fixed with the minimum software change.


      Can you please direct me to a link to standalone installer for v19.0.0.185 ?


      Ideally I would like to test later versions is there a page I can pick later versions of the ActiveX standalone installer from?


      Configuration Information:

          Operating system version - win xp sp2

          Web browser and version - firefox v25.x

          Flash Player version - v10.x


      For another machine Slackware based linux / firefox v25.x or higher / flash 11.x the package builder scripts look for:

          SOURCE="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/${VERSION}/flash_player_npapi_linux.${ARCH}.tar.gz" and get components using

          wget -nv -T 20 -O "${SOURCE}" "${SRCURL}"


      The above URL(eg http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/11/install_flash_player_npapi_linux.i 386.tar.gz)  is no longer valid. (Also used to be able to get files like http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/11.4.402.287/install_f lash_player.exe without wasting time on your support pages looking for the links to standalone downloads but it seems you stopped this about 2yrs ago)


      Where can I get this from so I can fix the package builder scripts to get whatever version I want and not just the latest?
