Dear all,

Can you please check if the downloads (for Windows) work as intended because we have issues downloading files.

Some work, one of them does not.

Thank you,

BR,

Thank you for confirming.  I'll forward your experience to the folks responsible for that page.<edit 5/16/19>This issue impacts Chrome browsers, and has been escalated.  If you're using Chrome, please try a different browser, to download the files from the Flash Player Distribution page.--Maria

Hi,

Which Windows version and browser (including version) are you using?  If you're using Chrome, please try Firefox or IE/Edge.   We've had reports of download issues, like you describe, on Chrome and are working to resolve the issue.


Please do confirm which browser (including version) and Windows version you are using.

Thank you in advance.

Having the same non-working issues with the Windows, Internet Explorer-Active X, All supported languages, Download EXE Installer link:

The one that downloads install_flash_player_32_active_x.exe. Nothing happens.

All other links work fine. But clicking the IE Download EXE Installer link produces no result. The IE MSI installer downloads fine as does the EXE one for Firefox with no problem.

This is on the Adobe Flash Player Distribution page.

I tried it from the latest version of Chrome in Windows 7, and even for kicks tried it from the last XP version of Firefox from an old install of Windows XP. I did not try IE in Windows 7 however.

Thank you.  As mentioned in this thread, this is a known issue with Chrome.   It should work on other Firefox and IE.

Oddly, as I mentioned in my first message, it did not work earlier in an older XP Firefox (version 52.9) so I tried to download the Internet Explorer-Active X EXE again in XP under Firefox "just for kicks" and it is now fixed and downloaded fine. I had earlier managed to download the MSI IE file and used that to update some Windows 7 PCs here since I was unable to download the EXE earlier. I did not try IE as we really do not use it but I keep the Flash Player in it updated in case some lunkhead does attempt to use it.

Forced Chrome to update just the Flash Player also for good measure, which it did.
