You need Flash Player to view Flash content in PDFs, PDF Portfolios, and other features. Adobe Reader and Acrobat no longer include Flash Player, and features that require Flash now leverage the machine’s local copy of Flash. This new strategy allows users and administrators to manage Flash Player updates independently of Acrobat product updates.
Note that the Flash Active X component is not enough to display Flash content. A full Flash Player must be installed.
- Right-click and download the Flash Player Installer for Windows (Active X and Plugin) or the Flash Player Installer for Mac OS.
- Choose Save Link As or Save Target As to download the installer to your computer.
- Specify a location for the installer (such as your desktop), and click Save.
- Browse to the installer
- Double-click it to begin the installation.
