Flash Player 10.1 (Release Candidate) is the latest Flash player version from Adobe. But it still requires administrator privileges to install it on your machine. So this post goes to all users like me who do not have administrator rights to install or update programs on their workstations in office or at school.
Follow the below mentioned steps to get this latest Flash Player on your machine and that too without needing administrative privileges.
(Please note that this is for Firefox only)
- Download the package I made Flash10.1 for Firefox (Click to download – download will open up in a separate window) (UPDATE: Visit http://abtevrythng.blogspot.com/2010/08/latest-flash-player-1018276-without.html to get the updated version 10.1.82.76)
- Quit Firefox! Yes that’s important otherwise you won’t be able to write/change files in its application directory.
- Double click to open the downloaded file ‘Flash10.1 for Firefox.exe’. It will open up a pop up notification. Click on Accept button to proceed.
4. Click the Install button to start the installation.(Keywords: installing applications without administrator privileges rights permissions, bypass admin rights, bypass administrator privileges, bypass administrator permissions, use application without admin, universal extractor, extract files from setup, extract files from exe, Administrator, privileges, article, Okay, ZERO, Just, setup, Firefox flash plug-in, flash plug-in, plug-in, plugin for Firefox, Firefox plugin without administrator rights, folder, rights, example, Documents, Pictures, Program, Files, Some, System, error, Portable, version, Google, word, Suppose, Application, machine, Portable_Applications_, Universal, Extractor, archive, UniExtract, Binary, THREE, ThinApp, purposes, languages, techniques, methods)
