Well this particular issue would affect Windows 10 too.

True, Flash EOL is not OS-specific, which is why moderators decided that the thread in the XP forum should be open to all members, so don’t hesitate to post a question there. I’m not sure what OS Mathwiz was referring to. I know he has Windows 7, so perhaps he is installing those ESU updates. It sounds to me like Microsoft has not done anything that would prevent a suitably old Flash Player ActiveX from working, but I don’t really know.

Right.  What I'm concerned with though is that the security updates for July, August and September 2021 also removed Flash.

I'm hopeful that one day I can decide to skip a number of months and then continue patching my system.  Currently I'm patched up to June 2021.  It would be great if I could commence from October onwards, thereby skipping the summer-month updates.  This is provided that the Flash removal is no longer combined with those updates.

I'm hoping it's no different than skipping the update that included the patch for Spectre and Meltdown four years ago.  I've had no problems since.

that update appears to be included in the July 2021 KB5004302 & KB5005389 updates for server 2012 / embedded win8 as I checked the contents of the KB5004302 & KB5005389 updates myself, which seems to have the flash removal files.  also included in the KB5005094 security-only update for Aug. 2021 as well.

the flash removal files don't seem to be included in the KB5005607 & KB5006732 security-only updates so Jody could just try to install those and avoid installing KB5005094 and KB5004302/KB5005389

From what I posted on eightforums.com ....

.... I installed the October 2021 (KB5006732) update AND ...................... Flash Works!!!! I'm using Server 2012 updates to patch the original Windows 8.
From what I knew, the Security Only updates for July, August and September 2021 have the Flash removal. So I am glad to see that October does not.

It works.  I guess I was hoping for someone to guarantee it first, since I'd rather not experiment with this system.  But it appears we're good.

EDIT:  KB5007245 was issued today, and it appears to be the same situation, so I'll chance my luck and install it this evening.

Is there a fast way to integrate all Server 2012 updates into Windows 8.0 ?

Either use Dism on an offline image (install.wim) or update a Syspreped installation and then capture it. Be warned that Servicing Stack updates need to be slightly modded when installing offline, as they have an "exclusive" flag set in the 'update.mum that makes it impossible to slipstream any updates after.
