Thanks for reporting. I'll check with the team that owns that page.
I don't want to download if the file has been compromised. I have many users that might attempt to rename the file to .exe
Are you distributing Flash Player within your organization? If so, the web (shim) installer, which you are downloading, is not the best install vector for distribution within an organization. The web/shim installers is a small file that then downloads the full Flash Player (and any other optional 3rd party software selected for download) silently in the background. Distributing Flash Player within an organization requires a distribution license (free for vast majority of use cases) and valid distribution license holders gain access to the full installers (EXE & MSI).
I have a distribution license that I do use to distribute Flash.
I do on occasion, have one-offs that I use the public, web installer download.
Thanks for confirming. I have forwarded your post to the team that handles that page and am waiting to hear back from them.
What operating system and browser are you observing the behaviour on?
I'm currently using IE 11 on Windows 7x64 fully patched.
Hi brianc2546354 ,
