I have removed all Flash from our company environment as it reached EOL.

However I need to revive it on at lease one machine temporarilly.

For this system we are using, I need Flash to upgrade the system out of Flash era.

Can someone tell me how I can install Flash now? Normal installtion file is not working.

In Windows 10, Flash Player is a part of the system. Unless you run the patch to remove it. This is a Microsoft patch and is irreversible (by design). This system Flash Player is used by IE and Edge, but not by Firefox.

It's a shame you didn't plan for this sooner.  Since the EOL, there are no more links to Flash Player from Adobe or vendors who embedded Flash Player into their browsers.

To give you any useful advice, I'm going to need to know more about your computer and browser:

Computer is regular Windows 10 desktop with enough resources.

I can use any of Firefox, IE and Edge for this system. All I need is installing Adobe Flash on W10 computer for any of those browsers.

The Microsoft Update for removing Flash Player is a one-shot deal.  There's no going back.  Also, current Safari, Chrome and Firefox have all dropped support for browser plug-ins across the board, so your options are limited on that front.

 

You have a couple options: 

  • Make a VM from a Win10 ISO, set the time back and don't apply any updates, use IE
    If you have access to MSDN for ISO downloads, probably the cheapest and easiest route.

  • License a maintained copy of Flash Player from our partner HARMAN and install it.
    Requires a paid licence. 
    Details: https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/enterprise-end-of-life.html

  • Obtain an old copy of the NPAPI Flash Player installer from a trusted archive (make sure you validate the digital signatures to ensure they don't come with bonus malware payloads) and use the latest Firefox ESR.

Thank you for your advise.

But, I don't think the license purchase is viable option for me.
