Flash Stand-Alone Installer for Internet Explorer

Ever since Adobe took over Macromedia’s Flash products, they have slowly converted everything into their corporate style, making the software big and bulky and taking away the “stand-alone” installer for Internet Explorer that you could put on a CD or flash drive and take with you so you don’t need an internet connection to install it.

The Firefox version has to be stand-alone since it’s a plugin and they can’t execute code from Firefox, but the IE version insists on installing itself from the web via active-x, which I don’t allow on my network since it’s incredibly dangerous and mostly just used for annoyances like ads.

But I stumbled across this little gem buried halfway in this page:

standalone -> http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/ts/documents/tn_19166/Install_Flash_Player_9_ActiveX.zip

It’s standalone Flash 9 for Internet Explorer directly from Adobe, yay!

    Version 10. Looks like the naming convention is the same.

  4. Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I
    was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment
    form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
