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.
- Go to the Flash Player download site. Download the “Adobe Flash Player 10 Update for Flash CS4 Professional” zipfile – 44MB.
- Unzip the archive somewhere, and go to the Players/Release/ directory.
- 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?
