I have removed the direct links, as we do not permit them according to our rules. However, the links to download directly can be found in the link on the first page, that Bo posted, here :

http://www.techsupportalert.com/free...html#post60875

One more thing, I downloaded the installers from the above link, but despite the page saying the version as 11.1.102.63, if I hover mouse over the installer, it still says 11.1.102.62 ..

However, it might be that, it actually be the latest version. Can anyone confirm this? I have not installed it yet.

Anupam,

Check out this thread in the Adobe Flash Player forum. I just DL it and it says v.11.1.102.63 - all other DL links we've talked about here give you v.11.1.102.62, don't know what reason for.

Cheers

Thanks for that link 26Dolphins. You are right, downloading from that link, does give the latest version.

I think they are playing some tactics here. I think they might be behaving like CCleaner do... that is, give out installer for the slim version some days after the normal version, which comes with toolbar and extra stuff.

Also, I noticed that the links which we have on the thread, have changed slightly on Adobe's site. It redirects to another link.

I really do not like such tactics... its a ploy to get the users to go for download from the main page, where they provide extra software bundled with installers.

I downloaded the installers from the usual links, and this time it worked.

One change that will be immediately noticeable on installation is that, after installation, it asks to choose whether the flash player should be automatically updated, or should ask for update when available, or not update at all. I think that is a good move, and people can choose accordingly. Default option is to automatically update, and so if general users choose it, that's fine.

I chose not to update at all, as I prefer to do it manually.

@ Anupam: I choose the option "notify me when updates are available". I think that this is a good step by Adobe.

Same experience as Anupam.

With this version, Adobe seems to have installed an Adobe Flash Player update service on the computer. I noticed this yesterday, when in the event log, I saw repeated entries of the service entering the start and stop state. There are many entries at frequent interval of time.

Now, when I have selected not to check for updates, then why does the service need to even start and stop. It should remain stopped forever.

Well, just now, I changed it to Disabled from Manual. Adobe can never stop bothering you, can they?

Apparently not. It's a good thing we don't shoot the messenger around here!
