Where did you install from ?
It looks like Adobe does have a new BETA version 16, and they now have PPAPI installers available for all Chromium based browsers.
Do you use a Chromium based browser and need to install the PPAPI version ?

  • PPAPI Installers for Windows and Mac
We're pleased to announce that we now have PPAPI installers for the standard version of Flash Player for Windows and Mac. Previously, this version of the Player was available only as an integrated component of Google Chrome. With the introduction of these installers, Flash Player is now available for all Chromium based browsers using the PPAPI interface. Please note that these installers are not required nor used by Google Chrome. Chrome will continue to include Flash Player without requiring any additional installation.

I thought Flash Player is built into Opera, like it is in Chrome, so FP is updated with a browser update..
I could be wrong, maybe someone here that uses and knows Opera can confirm or correct me on that.

Opera uses the same version as Firefox, the NPAPI

I don't think Opera has Adobe built in . Am i downloading the right one based on my screenshot ?

I do believe Opera is Chromium based.

Thank you

Flash Player installer download links

Well I usually fully remove the old version(s) first using the instructions on the adobe website:

https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player...r-windows.html - a reboot is required.

Then clean install the latest version by downloading the .exe version(s) from here:

Adobe Flash Player Distribution | Adobe

They don't come bundled with other extras that you don't need.

So you need EXE Installer (Windows) for IE

and

EXE Installer (Windows) for other plugin based browsers (not Chrome)

As for Opera I'm using the portable version and it requires the "other plugin based browsers" version. I don't know about the desktop version of Opera.

If you use IE - you need the IE version. If you don't use IE - you don't need the IE version.

If you use any other plugin based browser (but not Chrome) then you also need the plugin based version.

So on my machine I've got at least 6 browsers installed. The IE version of flash player takes care of IE. The plugin based version takes care of all the other browsers that don't have their own version of flash player built in.

I only use IE sporadically is why i ask . Very seldom overall but sounds like if you use it at all you need the IE version.

Adobe Flash Player
Adobe Flash Player is not supported for playback in a 64-bit browser. However, you can run Flash Player in a 32-bit browser running on a 64-bit operating system. How can I get a 32-bit browser for my 64-bit Windows 7 Home premium operating system?
