Adobe Flash Player Not Working After Windows 10 Update – Here’s the Story Behind It

Despite the security vulnerability issues Adobe Flash Player has encountered and tech giants, Microsoft and Google pulling support for the once popular multimedia software, Adobe Systems still continues to roll out updates for its users. True enough, there are still those who update to Windows 10 OS and applied security vulnerability updates of the Flash. However, they still encounter problems. But is the Flash Player really the one to blame? Probably, not all the time, like in this case.

Adobe Flash Player “Disabled” Error Message

One forwarded concern was about the error message sent by Adobe informing the user that Flash Player is disabled in Chrome running on Windows 10 OS. The user attempted to download Adobe Flash Player and got a message that it was already installed in the system but disabled. As expected, the option to allow sites to run flash was enabled but just the same, the “disabled” message still appeared. The result was that the program did not work properly. Fortunately, there was a way to resolve this issue and the Flash Player was not the culprit. It was just a case of pop-up blocking. After pop-ups were allowed, Adobe Flash Player worked as expected.

Adobe Flash Player Security Updates for Windows 10

Last month, there were two security updates for Windows 10 released by Adobe. These were the 2017-06 update for Windows 10 version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4022730) and Windows 10 version 1703 for x86-based Systems (KB4022730), with 20.7 MB and 10.1 MB download size, respectively. The latest Adobe Flash Player version for Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 is v.26.0.0.120 which was released to address critical vulnerabilities which will affect remote code executions.

For the past several years, this audio and video streaming application had to face security vulnerability issues and still continues to be in the hot seat. However, Adobe Flash Player’s popularity still continues and many top websites refuse to run without it.
