Adobe Shockwave Player

To deploy Shockwave Player silently, follow this guide: Silent installation and configurations of Shockwave player

If you’re unsure which installer to download, grab the MSI installers. If you are downloading the players to distribute them in your corporate network you must obtain a license from Adobe before doing so.

Here’s a link to the original unattend install script for these players that started this and here’s how to uninstall Flash Player if you’re having issues updating to the lastest version.

    I don’t see reference on adobe.com to “stealthpuppy”, but I’ll forward this blogpost to my partners to see if they see a match.

    Do you have any other citations for incorrect URL recommendations?

    One other regularly-sought download page is the list of old Players, for odd testing circumstances… search term of “player archive” usually pulls it up.

    “Can I make the Adobe Players available directly from my website?

    No. The Adobe free Player distribution agreement does not allow you to distribute the Players from your website. You must direct visitors to the Adobe Web Players area of our Downloads site. To easily link to our website, we provide Adobe Web Player buttons that you can display on your site.”

    “Adobe provides a free license to allow you to redistribute Adobe Flash Player or Adobe Shockwave Player on your company’s intranet, or with your software product or service. Use this online application to apply for a license for any or all of the Adobe web players.

    Hi John, I doubt you’ll find links to here from adobe.com. I think users coming here have been having issues using the ActiveX install and have come looking for the full installer.

    If the ActiveX Control for Flash Player fails to install, users can download the executable from here

    Darren, the links go to the Adobe website to download the files. Does it breach the licensing to publish such links (that direct people to the correct place on the Adobe website) on your own website?

    Hi Paul,

    This is correct. The Adobe free Player distribution agreement does not allow you to distribute the Players from your website. These MSI download links are only accessible after signing up for a license and should not be distributed.

    Thank you,
    Darren
