Hi chinee6526191​,

The offlicial Flash Player bits name are flashplayer_install_cn.exe if you are using Firefox browser and flashplayerpp_install_cn.exe for Chromium based browsers. Since you are on Win 10 machine, Flash Player for IE and Edge browsers comes pre-installed with Windows and all updates are pushed by Microsoft as part of Windows updates.

Thanks!

flash in china.jpgC

Here the proof that adobe make a different flash for chinese people, my flash is up to date from yesterday 15 july 2018, and i come to china today 16 july 2018. The flash no work for some web site.

I suggest never install from the chinese web site, if you don't want a SPY in your computer, it's absolute no safe, and not clear answer from adobe about that.

I have the same problem and spending hours to try to find a solution or support. I live and work in China but I DONT WANT any Chinese versions of ANYTHING. Trust me everyone, on this, Chinese versions always contain spyware and goodness knows what else. You find yourself constantly battling off Chinese adverts which you don't want and can't understand.

Surely the clever designers at Adobe can provide a choice? You go to the website to download the English version and click it, what happens. It automatically directs to cn and changes from English to Chinese. On that page we need a choice of preferred language. There are many foreigners here from many different countries. Nowadays, people travel for work and do not want our programmes changed into the language of the country we are visiting or working in. We all need our own language, or at least the choice to not have Chinese in China simply because one is working here.

Please, someone, tell me how to have an English version of FlashPlayer which is not in Chinese and not connected to Chinese advertising or other automated Chinese products which I do not want.

I am baffled why you would point English speakers to a download page that is in Chinese. How can I download and install if I don't know what the buttons and links say?

Fortunately, I got brave/foolish and clicked the blue button, even though I didn't know what it said. That downloaded an English-language installer.

Honestly, can't you set up a  page for people in China trying to install Flash Player in English?
