    Adobe Flash Player

    Trying to update flash player on about 6 computers (different makes and models of computers) all however have IE7 on!

    Go to the main adobe site and in all cases it says that my platform is not supported!

    All have XP Pro on (but different service packs).

    This is really annoying me, as I have had this problem before and you go to the adobe support and I can't find anything about it!!!

    Anybody seen this ?

    Regards

    Paul

    Is there any reason that you are not using the redistributable version of Flash?

    Google: Flash player redistributable

    Sign up on the website, they than process your request and send you to a link for it, they renew your license yearly, so there's no bother. Just state its for deployment in an education establishment and away you go.

    You can get a redist version of Adobe Reader 9 as well.

    NOTE: If you do use that you are still going to be required to sign up to Adobe's agreement anyway separately and gain approval.

    I have done this in the past, but found it's never the current, current version!

    Thanks Guys!

    ricki's link to the flash player 10 has worked and installed.

    However, anyone else come across this and found a fix, rather then just an msi from another source?

    Regards

    Paul
