Thank you for your feedback.

I actually created a full in-depth explanation, with pictures, for manually updating Adobe Flash Player with Windows XP and Chrome. It was helpful for one soul over at the Adobe forums who was confused. Anyone, including a newbie, should be able to find it useful.

Java was updated to Version 8 Update 141 yesterday, July 18, 2017. Tested and working on XP SP3.

https://www.java.com/en/download/

I recommend the standalone offline installer (jre-8u141-windows-i586.exe), it is usually more reliable to install, and can be archived:

Adobe says:

Quote

Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.

Source: Adobe's announcement.
Which can be translated as: "Flash will remain available until way after POSReady 2009's eventual EoL"! :yes:
As you all fully know, the relevant dates, according to MS are:

Quote

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

The EOL announcement certainly makes it sound that way: "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."

This seems to be a limited update related to security vulnerabilities. Up until April 2016, the update cadence had been every month or two. Since that time it has been exactly 3 months between each release. I expect Java to be another legacy application to be killed off in the future. I am not so sure it is as necessary or widely used as it previously was in the early 2000s. I would say Java's heyday was between 2004 and 2006, Java 5.0 and Java 6.0. DID YOU KNOW: Java 6.0 still receives non-public security updates.

OK, I probably won't bother with manually doing that update then, I'll wait until the automatic updater prompts me.
Thanks for the information.

I took the Java 9 JDK and attempted to install it. Surprisingly, it doesn't reject XP right away. It gives the same message as Java 8, but after clicking ok, nothing happens.

I am guessing that with the right updates, Java 9 will run on XP. Is there a way to find out why it it is stalling during setup?
