I have to download Flash from https://www.flash.cn

And it still prompt me "This Flash Player is not compatible with your region, please reinstall Adobe Flash Player."

Now I am totally blocked from using Flash. Why I cannot install general Flash. Have you ever tested in China?

If you read message 5 in this topic:

Re: [Region:China] "required system component is not running properly" error

it looks Adobe don't have any license deals in China any more.

If this doesn't work:

Adobe Flash Player Install for all versions

would you be able to try using a VPN to make it look like your computer is in another country?

The Flash Player beta installers are currently not available for distribution in China.  Only the non-beta installers are available from www.flash.cn, Adobe's official distribution partner in China.


Attempting to use the beta version in China, or Flash Player downloaded from a site other than www.flash.cn (e.g. by downloading it via VPN) will result in the 'not compatible' error.

I have the same problem, flash has stopped updating since 5 years ago, it's a legacy project. Adobe sold the rights of flash to a Chinese bloatware company in Chongqing, 重橙科技, and this 重橙科技 pushes bloatware game advertisements along with its updates. Don't ever count on adobe to solve this problem, they have abandoned it a long time ago.
