    I couldn't find a current changelog yet, but I installed the update anyway.
    Thanks for the heads up, brainrb1! :)

    Aha! The update addresses compatibility issues with some content using cross-domain policy files.
    Just as I suspected. :blink:
    Thank you, guest :thumb:

    For some reason, I have had very good success with updating Flash Player the last half dozen times. It used to be an ordeal of multiple attempts, uninstalling, reinstalling, rebooting, etc. But lately it has all gone very well for me. Ironically, this tool you have posted claims to be able to install without using the Adobe DLM, but I'm thinking that it might actually be the download manager that has simplified the whole process. (Just a guess, though.) I think it's possible that the stepped up frequency of updates might have added to the ease... simply because I am familiar with the process and know what works now and what to do, as opposed to having to refamiliarize myself with the updating process every few months or so. Suffice it to say, updating FP has become a breeze for me. :)

    Oh well, I always uninstall old Flash versions first in Add or Remove Programs, then I download and run latest uninstall_flash_player.exe, then I also run CCleaner (general cleaner and registry cleaner).

    After all that done, I download new Flash versions on direct links (without the Adobe DLM) and then I finally install.

    It's not a simple procedure but it's the most reliable.

    You send it off 3 different ways before inviting it back. I'm surprised it's willing to return. ;)

    I no longer uninstall the old Flash Player... I leave it in place.
    I open a browser outside of Sandboxie,
    (and on the box with Online Armor, I open the browser "normal", without RunSafer).
    Then I turn off the IE pop up blocker and download the new version of FP from here.
    I leave my AV running.
    I uncheck the Google Toolbar option (which is usually offered to me).
    I am prompted to install the Adobe DLM, which I agree to.
    I accept the EULA and the new FP is installed.
    I check to see if the new version installed by going here.

    Before closing the un-sandboxed browser, I turn the pop up blocker back on.
    Before and after installation I run ATF-Cleaner and CCleaner.
    I reboot to make sure everything is running okay.
    It takes longer to type these steps than it does to install the new FP version.

    :D I'm a traumatized guy, corrupted Flash installations already gave me much trouble.

    There is/was a site somewhere from which the flash installers could be downloaded from without having to use the Adobe DM. I don't mean places like filehippo et al, but it was a page set up by a guy for people who can't remember the Adobe URL. Can anyone remember this particular page?

    In the past there have been updates to Flash where installing overtop of current, and even uninstalling and running uninstall tool, only appeared to have done the trick.

    If one were to use either of these methods, the Adobe site would show you had successfully updated.

    However a scan with Secunia PSI, and a perusal of there forums, would clearly point to the fact you updated your flash player, but your PC was still vulnerable.

    This has probably led countless many into a false sense of security.


    The solution?
    ------------------
    1. Uninstall Flash by normal 'Control Panel' means.
    2. Run the Adobe Flash Uninstaller Tool from Adobe.
    3. (This requires admin privileges) Locate the folder called "Macromed" and delete it. On Windows x86 it is in the Windows\System32 folder. On Windows x64 it is in the Windows\SysWOW64 folder.
    4. Install new version of Flash Player.

    Correct input KFBeaker. I used to delete the Macromed folder as well.

    (But the uninstall tool now do the trick and really deletes old Flash remainings. Already checked its behavior to be sure.)

    One more thing to keep in mind: all these procedures to uninstall/install the Flash Player should be made without any application [that may load Flash for some reason] running in background. That's very important.
