Does anyone know where I can find earlier builds of the stand-alone flash players? I have 11.7 and the new 12, but I would like to get all versions of the Flash projector if I could. I have huge collections of Flash games and applications and such (over 123GB), and I would like to also have the debugger option for testing as well.
Also, can anybody recommend any third-party software for playing .swf Flash games or debugging, etc?
I have all the stand-alone projectors and earlier versions available here:
I just would rather switch projectors than have to uninstall Flash and reinstall Flash every time I need to test a new version.
These zip files contain ALL releases of the specified versions INCLUDING the Standalone Projectors for Windows and Mac (both standard and debugger)
If you need them:
When I run the executable it tells me a newer version of Flash is available, though. Can I extract the installer and get it that way? I'm not sure what kind of installer it is...
There's no installer for the "standalone" player, hence the name "standalone". It's an executable by itself. The installers are only for the plug-ins.
Other than on my Mac, I've never used more than one build of the Projector. It doesn't do so well on Windows with multiple copies and multiple builds. Windows Registry and shared DLLs see to that. Without setting up Virtual Machines, it's going to be tough to get around uninstalling and reinstalling, I'm afraid.
Oh my gosh, I am such an idiot. I was running the included installer, thinking that was the one that was the stand-alone. The stand-alone players have "_sa" added to them. That really makes me look like a Flash noob.
That solves that problem. Thanks so much, Mike!
Do you (or anyone, lol) know of any third-party software that can play Flash games like the projector? Or do any additional functions, like maybe on-the-fly memory patching, process analyzing, etc? I am looking for any tools or applications that might help me analyze SWF files.
Other than the Debugger Projector, or Flash Pro or Flex... I'm unaware of any.
Alright, I have some tools but I'm looking to update my toolkit. Actually, I just remembered that SWFTools and SWFRip are open-source, so I think I will throw some source up on GitHub and start making some of my own tools.
I just found out about Sothink SWF Decompiler and Trilix Flash Decompiler as well. I was surprised how much more information is available now as opposed to the last time I checked.
The default stand-alone projector (*_win_sa.exe) is not included in those packages since maybe 11.5. Only the Debug version is in (*_win_sa_debug.exe). However, it is included in long-term (Lts) releases 11.7/10.3.
Mike, Thanks so much for posting these! Stand-alone Flash players are surprisingly difficult to find.
I need a stand-alone 188.8.131.52 for Mac -- do you have that, and/or any other stand-alones for Mac of versions higher than you posted above (184.108.40.206)?
if anyone is interested this is a standalone flash player not made by adobe. it is the only one i use and it works extremely well. its from a program that converts swf to executable
Link does not work anymore.
Search a way to create a own standalone player (with modern GUI)
We have the current application dependency on Adobe Flash player till we are able to migrate out of Adobe Flash Player dependency. I am trying to access the Comunity link to download the archive for standalone version of Flash player.
Getting error , do not have access. Could any one assist me in getting accees to the community link to download the archives.
Download links for old versions of Flash Player were removed several months ago, prior to Flash's end-of-life. They are not available to anyone.
Please refer to the Enterprise end-of-life FAQ:
