Direct Download Links for New Adobe Flash Player 11.9 and AIR 3.9

Adobe Flash Player 11 is here!

In continuing to provide the direct download links for such major Adobe products as CC, CS6, Acrobat XI, Elements 12, and Lightroom 5, below you’ll find the DDL for the brand new just-released Adobe Flash Player 11.9 (the final version).  This is important because the free Flash Player is the most widely-used and often-downloaded software in world, and some folks find it easier to access it quickly and directly, without a download manager (e.g., Akamai), or with their own DLM, and without additional products or toolbars included.

Update: Please see the following page for a complete archive of all older releases of Flash Player – including Flash Player 11 – and going from FP version 2 all the way up to the latest version 15:

» Flash Player Download Archives

For each previous release provided there (after the “Developers only” section), you will find direct download links to packages containing installers for both Internet Explorer (IE) browsers (labeled with “ax” for Active X), as well as non-IE browsers (Firefox, Safari, Opera, etc).

These installers are given for both Windows (.exe or .msi) and Mac OS (.dmg). Uninstallers are also included in the bundle.

(Note that the most recent version of Flash Player is automatically built in to the Google Chrome browser, so it doesn’t require a separate download.)

  2. andy julian

    i hope to be downloading adobe flash without problem …………… thanks for your help …… ! !

  3. Thanks for the direct link, was trying to download from Adobe website but did not succeed.

  4. Bryon

    Today I noticed the flash player links (both) 404

  5. Aaron

    Perhaps you should edit the FP 10.3 article to strikethrough on the dead download links, or add text indicating the new article on this page…

    Google still brings up the 10.3 direct download article in a search for Flash Player direct download (without version)

    Hope you are willing to do something like this so those searching don’t just “click and fail, then leave your site”

    Thank you for continuing to post the direct links… wish Adobe would make them easier to find without resorting to forcing users to a search engine and 3rd party sites.

    • Thank you for your comments Aaron. Only one of the links wasn’t working on the Flash Player 10.3 page – the version for non-IE browsers – and that’s because Adobe changed the filename from “install_flash_player_10.exe” to “install_flash_player_10_plugin.exe”, which we figured out after a little fishing…

      Anyway, that link has been updated – so everything there is now working again. Thanks for the heads-up.

  6. Somehow your file lost the .exe part of the file name. If you download, it is NOT an executable file.

    • Hi Sharon, as mentioned in the note near the bottom of the article, sometimes the file extension gets dropped when downloading – particularly when using Internet Explorer…

      But it’s no big deal, just add back the “.exe” to the end of the filename and run it as usual.

    Beginning with 11.3, the universal installer will include the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Flash Player

  8. Vero

    Do you mean with Mac OS 10.8 I can download Flash Player 11.3 and then I will be able to install 11.4?


    • Hey there Vero, he’s just saying there’s now only one file to download that will install on 32-bit and 64-bit systems… Before 11.3, there were separate installers.

      You can just go straight for the latest FP 11.4 for Mac, you don’t need 11.3.

  9. Isuru

    yeah…its downloading without problems……. thanks a lot.

  10. santosh

  12. Utama

    Is there support for Windows 7 64-bit?

    • Hello Utama, yes – as mentioned in the article above, these links are the universal installers for Mac and Windows operating systems… They include both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Flash Player in a single download, and will install the version you want.

  15. prasanna

    I can’t get it, please send it to me

    • Sorry, we can’t do that – it’s against Adobe’s rules (and good practices on safety) to redistribute without authorization…

      Just make sure your browser isn’t blocking anything, or try with a different browser or computer.
