Just download the flash update for win8 and install it manually. should fix the issue where Windows updates doesnt actually updates flash. Works like a charm.

It wasn't when it was posted. They finally went from 11.3 to 11.6 less than a week ago.

Why is it that some websites that require Flash player dont work (like miniclip) on modern version of IE10 and others do (like youtube, vimeo etc)?

Because that version only enables the plugin for specific sites.

Yeah the metro version of IE10 uses a white list and allows specific sites to use flash while to blocks the ones not in the list. There is a tool you can get that let's you add sites to the white list if you want or there is a way to do it manually.

Hi I tried to follow the instructions as proposed below: but got stumped at step 6, I was unable to tick the "full control: box" therefore could not  complete the process.

 

My problem is, many site I visit ask to  install the Adobe Flash Player add on, but as it is embedded in Windows 8, and am unable to uninstall/reinstall Flash Player, am I going about solving my problem the right way.

 

32-bit system type:

  • Go to C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash
  • Right-click Flash.ocx and go to Properties.
  • Go to the Security tab, and then click Advanced.
  • Click Change next to "Owner:"
  • Type the following into the box that appeared and then click OK: Administrators
  • Under "Permission entries:" double-click "Administrators", check the box "Full control" and then click OK.
  • Click OK and then click Yes.
  • Click OK.
  • Rename Flash.ocx to Flash-original.ocx
  • From the ZIP file you downloaded you will see a folder called SysWOW64. In there, copy the Flash.ocx file to C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash. SysWOW64 contains the 32-bit version of Flash.
