Adobe said they are retiring flash in [the end of] 2020.

Which can be translated as: "Flash will remain available until way after POSReady 2009's eventual EoL"!

As you all fully know, the relevant dates, according to MS are:

• Windows Embedded Standard 2009, Extended Support will end on Jan. 8, 2019.
• Windows Embedded POSReady 2009, Extended support will end on April 9, 2019.

Yes, in the end of 2020

@yazzie03

Why have you got exactly the same signature as me, surely we can't possibly have identical machines!

Because it was a span-bot and randomly selected your signature, describing your very unusual setup, to copy... that gave it away, instead of helping it mingle... :P  Great find! :thumbup

That whole message was just spam?
Shows how perceptive I am about that sort of thing!
I guess it was just to get you to go to moviesonline.gy?

Well, you were perceptive enough to notice the replicate signature quite fast, weren't you?
And that trigered my subsequent reaction...

Those download addresses yield installers signed with SHA1. However, the default locations (below) yield instead installers signed with SHA256, which are seen as invalid by Win XP SP3. On stripping the signatures from both, the remaining installers are binarily identical.
This means adobe is creating installers with both types of signatures, nowadays!!! :w00t:
By default locations I mean those:

Internet Explorer ActiveX:
http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/flashplayer/latest/help/install_flash_player_ax.exe

Mozilla Firefox NPAPI (also for Opera Presto/Google Chrome 44 and earlier): 
http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/flashplayer/latest/help/install_flash_player.exe

Google Chrome 45 through 49 PPAPI:
http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/flashplayer/latest/help/install_flash_player_ppapi.exe

I didn't, however, find any address yielding the "uninstall_flash_player.exe" signed with SHA1, instead of with SHA256... :dubbio:

@dencorso

In that case, I would just use the Add/Remove Programs in Windows XP. Clicking on the program produces a visible "Remove" button.

Has anyone managed to get Java 8 Update 161 to install from the installers on XP?

I've never had any problems before, but now the offline and online installers just run and then close, without apparently doing anything.

There's no error messages, and nothing in the system logs about it.

Has XP finally been blocked or is this perhaps to do with the latest MS Windows Updates (I hope not!)?

:dubbio:

Hi @Dave-H,

I posted about this problem early on Wednesday morning, please see my post and the related comments.

Thanks! I'm not subscribed to that thread, so I hadn't seen that.
It does look like a compatibility problem of some sort.

The install log says  -
ERROR: Exception with message 'Dll.cpp(48) at Dll::getFunction(): GetProcAddress(D:\WIN-NT\system32\user32, SetProcessDPIAware) failed. System error [127](system error 127 (The specified procedure could not be found))' caught

Also, rather less helpfully, I can see -
ERROR: Exception with message '' caught

I wasn't aware of this happening before, but a post on the other thread says that a modified installer was produced before by blackwingcat (presumably mainly for Windows 2000) so I hope that can be done again this time, if it's only the installer that has a problem and not the Java system itself.
I was hoping to unpack the installer and get at the MSI file, but no luck.

Fortunately I still had the offline installer for version 8 Update 151, so I've just put that back for the moment.

:)

@Dave-H

Java JRE 8 Update 152 is actually the newest. It appears that 151 and 152 were released on the same day, and that 152 supersedes 151.

http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/jre-8u152-windows-i586.exe or from Duke University: http://faucet.aas.duke.edu/pub/pc/bigfix/patches/java/jre-8u152-windows-i586.exe

For some reason the Java archive requires an account, so I would use the above links if you don't have an account.
