Flash Player ActiveX

15.0.0.189

The Adobe Flash Player is freeware software for viewing multimedia, executing Rich Internet Applications, and streaming video and audio, content created on the Adobe Flash platform.

Note

This package is only for Windows XP to Windows 7, because Windows ≥ 8 already contains an integrated Flash Player for Internet Explorer.

Warning

The installation of Flash Player ActiveX fails with a 1603 error when Internet Explorer is open.

To install Flash Player ActiveX, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install flashplayeractivex
