The Shockwave Player won't help with SWF files — you need the Flash Player for that.
Adobe Shockwave Player and Adobe Flash Player are two different technologies that plays different content, and are not interchangeable.
For Player SWF content, you'll need Flash Player. If the content is on a website, you'll need the browser plugin, available for download at https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer. If it's a SWF file on your system, you'll need to Flash Player projector. Projector files are available for download at Adobe Flash Player - Debug Downloads

It sounds like you're trying to export a PDF Portfolio from Adobe Acrobat as SWF. This is honestly probably a better question for the Acrobat forum (we just play the SWFs, we don't make 'em), but I believe what you're looking for is the NPAPI Flash Player, which Acrobat uses to view SWF-based content (generally when embedded in PDFs).
You can find it here. Just choose your operating system and select the NPAPI variant:

A graphic designer should know that Flash Player is being phased out and SWF may not be a good choice if soon nobody can read it.
I think the deal here is that when you publish from InDesign to Interactive PDF, Acrobat may be using the NPAPI Flash Player for some of that interactive functionality; however, we're just providing the fundamental technology. We're really far removed from what InDesign and Acrobat have built on top of it.
It sounds like Interactive PDF is what you want (unless you're looking to target mobile, in which case, Adobe Digital Publishing Suite is probably more appropriate), but we're outside my area of expertise.
If our guidance didn't help, you might want to explain what you're trying to accomplish over in the InDesign forums and see what people recommend.
