Warning this is not an “easy” install. In fact it is down right complex.
- Download the uninstaller
- Open the Windows Command Prompt ( Run > cmd ).
- Navigate to the directory where the uninstaller was downloaded.
- Run “uninstall_flash_player.exe /clean.”
Then you can Download ActiveX Control for Windows Internet Explorer (EXE, 1.40 MB)
Agree that you understand that this will destroy your PC, but you have no choice but proceed.
I had to reboot after the install to get it to work.
And you may see this from time to time “This program requires a missing Windows component“
But you get the following new features:
- Support for H.264 video and HE-AAC audio codecs (new Aug. 21).
- Enhancements to full-screen mode to use hardware scaling for improved video performance and quality on systems running Windows 2000 and newer or Mac OS X 10.2 and newer.
- Faster rendering of vector graphics on multi-core CPUs.
- Higher quality and performance for downscaling large bitmaps (SWF 9 only).
- Support for caching common platform components, such as the Flex framework, to reduce average application sizes. This feature is enabled in the Flex 3 beta available on Adobe Labs.
- Support for full-screen mode on Linux.
Also included in this update:
- HTTP requests from the Flash Player ActiveX Control in some versions of Internet Explorer did not include the Accept-Language header. The ActiveX Control now always inserts this header.
- Support for Microsoft Active Accessibility (MSAA) in the Windows plug-in.
