Adobe Flash, Shockwave, and Oracle Java on XP (Part 1)


Recommended Posts

It looks like the auto update functionality is working again on Windows XP and Chrome again. My Flash Player beta was automatically updated from 32.0.0.150 to 32.0.0.161 overnight:

I've been prompted with a new Flash Player update window.

Too bad their website it's not working, though; this is what happens when I try to download the update:

I don't think I've ever had success using the built in auto update functionality. (At least, not recently). To ensure I have the latest version I always use the "current" links. While you could argue the SHA2 won't run on SP1 or SP2, I have no reason to run anything older than SP3. For example, my HP all-in-one printer that I bought a few months ago requires a minimum of SP3 along with Internet Explorer 8.

Windows XP will be supported straight through the end of Flash Player support next year, so there's no risk of downloading a new version that incompatible with Windows XP. Adobe itself said as much in its July 25, 2017 press release Flash & The Future of Interactive Content.

"Adobe will continue to support Flash on a number of major OSs and browsers that currently support Flash content through the planned EOL. This will include issuing regular security patches, maintaining OS and browser compatibility and adding features and capabilities as needed. We remain fully committed to working with partners, including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla to maintain the security and compatibility of Flash content."

I never recommend the SHA1 links with the embedded version numbers because they go dead as soon as a new version is released. Such as http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/32.0.0.156/install_flash_player_ax.exehttp://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/32.0.0.156/install_flash_player.exe, and http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/32.0.0.156/install_flash_player_ppapi.exe.

I always check the version number installed before I update Flash by looking in the C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash folder. Before yesterday's update an old version of Shockwave was still installed, there was a Shockwave folder alongside the Flash folder in \Macromed\. After the update, the \Shockwave\ folder was gone and an empty \Temp\ folder in it's place.

I assume Adobe uninstalled Shockwave with the latest Flash update.

As for Java, I never installed it. As far as I can see, the only thing I am missing are the emojis and features like Bold and Italic lettering in my Yahoo e-mail account. One less security hole to worry about.

@sdfox7 - I assume that this method still works for Flash v32.0.0.192? http://sdfox7.com/chromexp2.htm

@submix8c yes indeed it does. I've not been on the forums much over the past two months as I just took on another business in addition to my night job, so I've been extremely busy working out of the house.

If anything urgent comes up you can message me and I should receive an e-mail notification.

Where's @Bersaglio?

I assume we can just change "192" to "207" in the links below. I'm about to give it a try anyway.

Edit: Apparently works fine. (Avast did scan "plugin-container.exe" for me, but didn't find any malware!)

@Usher

My links contain obviously different distributions with SHA-1 signatures which can be verified on Windows XP (Your links with SHA-2 signatures which can be verified on Windows 7+). :hello:
