Adobe Flash Player 23
 
Adobe Flash Player has been updated to version 23.0.0.162

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.

The link for the setup files will be decommissioned at the end of this month :(

Just wanted to say thank you, Anupam, for this service. Always nice to know exactly when to do this, as I never permit Adobe to phone out

Anupam 16. Sep 2016 07:02 AM

My pleasure. Glad to know it's helping someone.

EldonW 16. Sep 2016 06:26 PM

Thanks Anupam - I have been keeping an eye on this.
That page and links were to be decommissioned on 22 January 2016.
Adobe just keeps on changing the date.

Anupam 16. Sep 2016 07:05 PM

Yes Eldon, I have been noticing that too. Maybe they are having second thoughts, because of the traffic to that page. Hope they keep delaying it :p

Sope 16. Sep 2016 09:24 PM

Agreed, I continue to appreciate the updates too Anupam.
I also keep hoping the option to download the installers will remain although I suspect that the end is nigh :(

Anupam 16. Sep 2016 09:49 PM

Thanks Sope :)

And yes, I too feel the end is near. Let's see if they really kill that page this month.

Anupam 11. Oct 2016 10:57 AM

Flash Player has been updated to 23.0.0.185.

Sadly, the distribution page, where you could download the offline setup is no longer available now. They finally killed that page. :(

The uninstaller can still be downloaded from its page.

Anupam 11. Oct 2016 11:05 AM

Had to install via an online installer, something which I don't like at all. Why can't they just provide an offline setup like other software? I like to keep the setups of the software for installation at a later time, or for installation on another computer, so these kinds of online installers are a pain, and also account for bandwidth. Why do I have to download it again for a different computer in my home?

The download page also shows the download size as incorrect. After un-selecting the adware options, it shows download size as around 19 MB, which suggests an offline setup file, but what you really get is 1.1 MB of online installer.

I thought the link "Need flash player for a different computer?" would download the offline installer, but no, it too downloads the online one. :mad:

Sope 11. Oct 2016 01:47 PM

Anupam...

Do you know how the automatic updating works with Adobe Flash Players if I were to select the relevant option offered at the end of installation using a previously downloaded offline installer?

May be worth having one other background update service running in order to avoid having to dodge bundled trash?

Anupam 11. Oct 2016 06:22 PM

That option is provided at the launch of the online installer too.

I have no idea though, of how the automatic update works as I have never used it.

I always like to do the update myself by using setups, and I don't like adding a service unnecessarily to my computer. So, never used that option.

Sope 11. Oct 2016 08:44 PM

Ok, I've reinstalled the last outdated version and told it to notify me when there's an update available... just to see if it directs me to the website to download the new version or gives the option to update directly... hasn't offered me anything yet so far!

Got this message window this morning :-

The download button just opens a browser to install in the usual way rather than to actually download an offline installer that previously you could get from the distribution page.

I guess changing the settings to the "automatically install updates" option would perform an update in the background.... but I don't entirely trust Adobe to do it cleanly without additions :rolleyes:

Anupam 16. Oct 2016 01:24 PM

Which option had you chosen? To check for updates and alert you?

It is alerting you about the new update after quite many days, which isn't good :rolleyes:

Yes and yes!

I also noted it says...

"if you have selected to allow Adobe to install updates, this update will be installed on your system automatically within 45 days or you can choose to download it now"

...so no rush then!

Anupam 16. Oct 2016 02:38 PM

Yes, I noted that too.

Within 45 days :rolleyes: .. that's kind of a joke, considering the security vulnerability flash player gets.

Anupam 27. Oct 2016 09:02 AM

Flash Player updated to 23.0.0.205

Sope 27. Oct 2016 09:46 PM

Well after I last posted, I decided to reinstall Adobe Flash Player again using those last outdated offline installers I have, but this time selecting to allow automatic updates to be handled by Adobe Flash Player in the background....

....hey presto... I've just checked and I now have this latest version installed on my system as of yesterday, and with no hidden extras added it would appear!

Anupam 28. Oct 2016 08:07 AM

That's good to know Sope :). Glad it worked well for you.

eyeb 28. Oct 2016 08:27 AM

it's a pain the ass but you can still use offline installer, for some reason adobe has always called it a debug download. Maybe it is slightly different? I don't know but it works.

I use it so i can add flash to my portable firefox

https://www.adobe.com/support/flashp...downloads.html

windows 10 seems to block the automatic setup for me, FYI, no idea how to get around it. I tried to "unblock" it but during the install it would fail regardless. Anyhow, I like the above method for offline installer

between flash and firefox, my entire setup is using debug/dev versions :( boo firefox addons not being verified (won't give them up though, nothing seems to work as well as 6 year old plugins)

Hmm... interesting. I'd like to know what the difference is between the debug and standard versions though.

Anupam 08. Nov 2016 11:05 AM

Flash Player updated to 23.0.0.207.

Sope 08. Nov 2016 02:46 PM

With Adobe Flash Player now set to automatically update on my system, I already have this latest version installed. Much quicker than the "notify me only" option I tried first of all.

Looks like they're doing you out of a job Anupam! ;)

Anupam 08. Nov 2016 06:12 PM

Haha :D. I was expecting your reply, as to how the update went since you put it on auto update. I am glad it's working quite well.

I am still using the download and update method, which suits me. One thing though, once you install the update via its online installer, it gets deleted automatically. That means have to download it again for a different computer :rolleyes:
