Direct download links for Adobe Flash Player, AIR and Shockwave Player

Direct download links for critical free Adobe software from the Adobe website.

For various reasons, it is sometimes difficult to download and install important pieces of Adobe software that are essential for a modern internet experience because the installers (or installation) fails.

To get around this problem, the software can be directly downloaded from the Adobe website, but the links are somewhat concealed. To make this easier, I have published the download links below so that the programme files may be accessed for direct installation.

1. Adobe Flash Player

The free Adobe Flash Player permits users to view Adobe Flash components in websites. Portals such as YouTube rely on this programme to operate properly. Users can check which version of Flash is currently installed on their machines via this website.

Two versions of Adobe Flash Player are available:

2. Adobe AIR

Adobe AIR is a cross-operating system runtime that supports the building of applications using HTML, JavaScript, Flex and Flash.

The latest version can be downloaded here:

3. Adobe Shockwave Player

Adobe Shockwave Player permits the viewing of 3D games and entertainment, interactive product demonstrations and online learning applications. Shockwave Player displays web content that has been created by Adobe Director.

The latest version can be downloaded here:
