Installing Adobe Flash Player 10 ActiveX Control

Here’s how I got the Adobe Flash Player 10 ActiveX Control to install under Windows Vista, so I could embed Flash movies in Powerpoint.

  1. Go to the Flash Player download site.  Download the “Adobe Flash Player 10 Update for Flash CS4 Professional” zipfile – 44MB.
  2. Unzip the archive somewhere, and go to the Players/Release/ directory.
  3. You’ll find an executable named Install Flash Player 10 ActiveX.exe, which will do just what the name says!

This is kind of convoluted; maybe people have found easier ways?
