Default Adobe Flash Player 18

Adobe Flash Player 18.0.0.160 has been released.

The setup files without any bundled software can be downloaded from here:

https://www.adobe.com/products/flash...ribution3.html

The uninstaller can be downloaded from here:

https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player...er_uninstaller

Download and run the uninstaller first to get rid of Flash Player completely, and then install the new version.

I moved to Windows x64 recently.

In Control Panel, Flash is listed as x86 ...



The Adobe website detects x64 windows, while my installed software list doesn't say one way or the other for Flash.



Is this usual? Is it perhaps because I'm running Firefox which is x86 only?

Quite possible. I'm on W8.1x64 and using Firefox and Control Panel also shows that I have Flash Player 32-bit too. One thing though, I couldn't find the Adobe page to detects my installed version. Could you post a link?

BTW, is that SyMenu? Looks good.

Although a stand-alone Flash player exists (or did, I haven't checked lately) most people are using a browser plug-in or add-on. Thus, I assume it is the browser and not the OS that determines the version.

Thank you both ... it just seemed odd to me that it would show in Control Panel as x86, as I was thinking that the plug-in version is a generic download for other software as well as FF. Although on reflection, other programs do always seem to need the IE installer version.

The page I screenshotted Joe is here ... I got there by googling "Adobe Flash x64". The page is really for IE issues but it does show that Adobe detects my OS correctly. I think : )

The menu is Classic Shell with a skin called "Smoked Glass" ... I do like SyMenu but I stopped using it for some reason or other, I forget now.

I'm sure there used to be a stand-alone flash exec on the page that Anupam links to ... I've used it before for playing flash games like Tanki when I was struggling with outdated hardware. It's not there now but there is a third-party standalone version available elsewhere.

Apologies Anupam for derailing your thread a bit ...

Not so odd really, they are all unsafe; we're waiting for another update because of a new vulnerability. Hopefully within 24 hours...
