For Edge: At this time Microsoft does not offer the ActiveX Control content debugger for IE/Edge on Windows 10.

For Chrome/Opera, the content debuggers are available at Adobe Flash Player - Debug Downloads

Yandex isn't officially supported, as such, can't say how it handles the content debugger

While Gogole embeds Flash Player in Chrome, if the manually installed Flash Player version is equal to, or greater than, the embedded version, Chrome will load the user installed version.

For example, the embedded version is saved at C:\Users\labuser\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\PepperFlash\28.0.0.161\pepflashplayer.dll and Chrome loads Flash from this location


After installing the content debugger (of the same version), Chrome loads Flash from C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\pepflashplayer64_28_0_0_161.dll

To check where Chrome is loading Flash from, launch Chrome and navigate to chrome://flash, look for the Flash Plugin version and path

<edit>

Opera doesn't have a builtin Flash plugin, it  uses the user installed Flash Player (release or debugger)

Replacing Flash Player in Chrome is possible, but sub-optimal.  You'd basically need to install the system-wide PPAPI Flash Player, then look in chrome://flash and copy the relevant files to the Chrome-specific location.  You may also break Chrome's automatic updates in the process, etc.  We generally don't recommend this.


Personally, I use Opera (it's a Chromium fork) for running the debugger instead of trying to mess with Chrome's regular Flash Player installation.

You *could* launch Chrome with commandline options to point to the system install of Flash Player and get the debugger that way, but it's way easier to just use Opera. 

See the ppapi-flash-path option if you want to go that route:

Details for Flash Player's installation paths and stuff can be found in the system administrator's guide, here:

I installed the Pepper debugger (to confirm Google hadn't changed the behaviour again) on Windows 10 before replying. The Flash Player path's I posted are the before, when Chrome was loading the embedded version from the user location, and the after, when Chrome was locating the content debugger from the system location.  System location and system plugin is what we refer to as the non-embedded version and install location.

Please provide the following:

  • Chrome version you are using
    • <edit> Older versions of Chrome do not load Flash from the system location.  Google changed this in early Chrome 50 versions.  I don't recall the exact version.  Current version  loads Flash from the system location as long as the version is the same as or greater than the embedded version.
  • What is the name of the installer file you are using?
  • Please post a screenshot of the error you are getting
  • Is Chrome managed by your IT department?  If so, it's possible changes were made to prevent using the system plugin (system plugin is the non-embedded version)

Are you getting that message on the download website or from the installer itself?

I think that if you download the PPAPI version here, you should be good.
