That is what I thought it might be, but I cannot understand why the Get Adobe dialogue that is followed for getting a download specifies all the different version and does not just state "most Window except for...." It would sure simplify the info for non professional users who track every little detail of update releases. I have the same concersn for Adobe Flash, it appears that there are separate versions for different versions of IE, Firefox, Opera, etc. and lately we keep getting messages to upgrade almost every other day or so it seems. It is getting to be a real pain figuring out what to upgrade and why. No wonder so many people do not upgrade anything using the philosophy of "If it isn't broke, don't fix it."
If you have a license to distribute, you better go to the direct download location (without the download manager) http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.4.0/en_US/AdbeRdr940_en_US.exe
Or you can go to the FTP site ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.4.0/ and select the language version you want, as well as the installer type (EXE or MSI).
Flash Player comes in two flavors: ActiveX for Internet Explorer, and a plugin for all other browsers. Find the appropriate downloads at http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/fp_distribution3.html
