Flash player 12.x to for portable browsers (32 and 64 bits)

Note (2018-09-14): due to lack of time (and interest, and how is Flash still alive anyway?), today’s upload of version will be the last version I repackage. Thanks for hanging around all this time ๐Ÿ™‚ (and good luck with the few rare sites that still somehow near the end of 2018 require you to use Flash)

Skip to the download links if you’re too lazy to read or if you already know what you’re doing

Latest version for download here: for Firefox and Chrome. Mirrors are available in article and/or in the latest comments. If this is out of date, don’t hesitate to bump me in comments, I don’t check for updates quite regularly.

Note (2018-07-18): as far as I know, the instructions are now totally outdated and basically the only relevant part of this post is the download links. I’m not using Flash anymore, be it portable or not, so I don’t know what the up-to-date setup voodoo is (on a side note, thanks very much to browsers for always changing that shit). But you’ll probably find interesting pointers among the most recent comments.

Finally, about 2 years and a half after Flash 11, Adobe recently released Flash 12, and quite quickly later, Flash 13 to 16. I don’t think there’s anything major in this release, the previous version was 11.9.x and I guess they preferred 12.0.x rather than getting into 11.10.x and such. I have no idea about the changelog, although from previous experience on the 11.x branch, it’s probably mainly security and bug fixes. The Linux version was discontinued at version 11.2 (although they still update this one with security fixes, current version being, which you can grab there), so probably even Adobe see Flash’s end coming. Which will be a sad day for me too, because quite a few people land here thanks to it ๐Ÿ˜‰ although much fewer lately because it seems Google hates me since last summer ๐Ÿ™ (I guess I can say it now that the traffic coming from them shredded to the point it became almost negligible, so even if they bury me even more I shouldn’t feel much difference – for instance, yesterday’s traffic: Bing + Duckduckgo brought me half the traffic Google brought)

Anyway, the usual mentions:

1) If you’re planning to use this with Tor, you should also plan to say goodbye to IP anonymity (which I believe is the main reason for using Tor): Flash will connect without much regards for your Tor Browser proxy settings so it can leak your IP to someone willing to get it. Well, maybe there’s a way to make it safer, but seriously using browser plugins such as Java and Flash while trying to be anonymous is like trying to win a race while starting late on purpose.

2) To “install” it into your portable browser, grab the correct files (either 32 or 64 bits) and put it in the plugin folder (which you may need to create yourself), which is:

  • Firefox Portable: Data/plugins + set plugins.load_appdir_plugins to true in about:config
  • Opera USB:
    • new version (Chromium based): [Opera install dir]\[Version number]\plugins\ (thanks and Kooky Tommy in the comments)
    • old version (12x): program/plugins
  • Iron or Chrome Portable: Iron/plugins

NB: as of today (2016-01-23), those instructions are probably quite outdated. I haven’t actually used portable Flash in years, you may want to browse the comments to find up-to-date instructions.
I’m pretty sure Flashplayer.xpt is useless, but I include it because it’s tiny and some people do look for it.
Also, I haven’t actually used any portable browser in a loooong while, so if those instructions are outdated, don’t hesitate to let me know (let’s beat the record number of comments set around Flash player 11 ;)).
Edit: okay this section is totally outdated for Chrome-based browsers now…

3) Last but not least, this is not a magic portable Flash, this is just a repack of the original Flash stuff to make it easier to “install” manually on a device where you don’t have admin rights. So, Flash will, as usual, store the infamous LSO (Local Shared Objects) “cookies” in a system location (in %APPDATA%\Macromedia\Flash Player), and you’ll want to delete the stuff in there at the end of your session if you’re also concerned about not leaving tracks and not just about running Flash stuff.

Ok, now I shut up and here is the zip containing NPSWF32_31_0_0_108.dll, FlashPlayerPlugin_31_0_0_108.exe, NPSWF64_31_0_0_108.dll and flashplayer.xpt (the first 2 are the 32 bits version, the third is the 64 bits, and the last is here for, hm, decoration ^^) and now there is also, in the same package, the new Pepper Flash Player files for Chrome-based browsers (those “pepflashplayer” dlls). They are hosted primarily on Megabitload and, which should keep a back up “indefinitely”, and on my server, where only the latest version is guaranteed to be maintained (the previous ones can usually be obtained with a trivial URL manipulation, but whenever I change hosting I drop the older versions, so no guarantee that this will always work). I will also try to upload them to, because some people have reported issues (well, company filtering issues) connecting to the other 2 places, but they delete files after 30 days there, so obviously this will only be suitable for grabbing the latest release while it’s hot.

For developers, here is also the debug version (yes, I don’t upload this one quite regularly because I guess not many people need it – if you do need a more recent debug version let me know).

    Dieter please forgive me a question:
    Your game link: Extremely interesting!
    I’m an old Duke Nukem dos game person. Don’t know anything about new games.
    What is this site? This is way over my head from simple flash games from Ferry Halim lol.

    Sorry guys… please forgive me for taking way too much space here….

  2. patheticcockroach says

    By the way everyone who still uses Flash, there’s an unpatched vulnerability that’s being actively exploited at the moment. Better turn it off until the patch is released:

  3. POI says

    Just saw this before visiting here!
    As usual, Dave’s on top of things! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Already there was a new version –, and you have on the website already outdated version.

  6. POI says

    With respect, @patheticcockroach is doing this to help a LOT of people.
    And he is doing this for nothing but our sincere thanks!
    For the most part, he doesn’t even use flash himself.

    He deserves the utmost thanks & respect for his work to provide these packages.

    • patheticcockroach says

      Yeah it was a lot easier when I was still using Flash on my main computer (well, not really using but at least installing it on my computer ^^).
      Now, with every release, I need to open my old computer and install Flash on it to extract the files. It’s not a lot of work, but it’s not quite convenient and I can’t always do it quickly, unfortunately. This time, the security issue had made the news so I anticipated it a bit and was able to post the file faster than usual ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Dieter says

    Thanks @patheticcockroach!
    Version is rolled out… – (Windows Patchday)


  8. Empatojayos says

    Where do you get FlashPlayerPlugin_xx_x_x_xxx.exe? I find the other two files inside the Macromedia folder in Windows XP 32.

    • patheticcockroach says

      I get it in the same folder as the rest… It’s weird that you don’t have it there too, although I’m not sure how useful it is anyway

      • Empatojayos says

        My File Listing of “C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash”:

        plugin.vch 456727 bytes

        As you can see, the file in question does not exist in my normal installation (under Windows XP), both by name and by size. Will it be a necessary file for a later Windows?

      • patheticcockroach says

        For me FlashPlayerPlugin_29_0_0_113.exe is in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash, which contains, oddly enough, Flash 32 bits.
        My C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash folder contains Flash 64 bits, which doesn’t have such a file.

        I actually don’t know what this file is for. I think it was added at some point when Firefox made a change to their plugin system, and as far as I remember I had trouble loading Flash without this executable after it was added, but it was quite a while ago…

      I’ll do this tomorrow.

      And a heads-up: this will be the last time I repackage Flash. This technology has been dead for years, and I have no convenient way to do those packages, as I have to do it on an old dedicated computer. I wouldn’t mind taking the time to keep this up if this was some privacy-related technology, but it’s pretty much the opposite, so… I think it’s time to (finally) pull the plug

    • patheticcockroach says

      There it is:

      Also, I’m aware there’s currently a problem with the Captcha, I’ll keep an eye on it. I really, really hope it’s just a temporary downtime, as they’re the only service I know which is both Google-free and easy and fast to solve

      • Rael says

        Thank you for the update ๐Ÿ˜Š

  17. Dieter says

    Oh, sad to hear that you shut down your Service, I can understand the decision – you need your spare time.
    Though by this site you made me visit your other sites, was interesting.
    Btw: i once did the same, but not on an old computer, I did it in virtualbox-portable.

    Thanks for all your work!

  18. Nikola says

    It is a pity that you have decided to stop releasing new versions of flash player for chrome. It is very much needed so far when working on the Internet. For example, I have an old version of chrome, but updating the flash player may be necessary, and a new version of chrome can not be installed, because I have Windows XP, so I had to take the new version of flash on your site. And now I do not know how I will work on the computer without new versions of flash.

    • nab says

      if you’re still on xp, moving to linux (xubuntu e.g.) could be a solution.

      This, apparently, version for firefox, and the version for chrome no longer?

      • patheticcockroach says


        Yes, I’ve stopped updating this because I had to refocus on more productive things than being Adobe’s pro-bono evangelist. Flash is a zombie anyway, and webmasters still using it are being insanely lazy: its demise was announced years ago by Adobe themselves ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ

  20. Alissa says

    Thank you so much for your work this far. I relied on it and just checked around because the n-th page I was browsing got blocked due to my flash plugin being out of date. Sad but true. I run a portable FF browser version in my workplace pc, which is of course locked and blocked and proxied and firewalled and what-not. I have problems browsing work-related websites, too. Anyway, do you know where I can find a 32bit version of the newest plugin possibly downloadable from a normal website (most get blocked by my proxy. Among the links here, is the only one that works!). Thank you

  21. Kooky Tommy says

    (Sorry my English.)


    I also need the Flash. I install and upload it. Not only did I download the ESR version, but also the rest. (Now only the rest.)
    Use the link above in the description. Or this: (Same link, but start with list view.)

    1. I do this at my workplace, so I can only do it on weekdays and if I am not on vacation.
    2. I will only update if I notice it. This may be a few days or even a few weeks. If you want to help me, you can tell me the arrival of the new version here.

    At last: I uploaded the new version

    • Alissa says

      Hi there, it looks interesting. Can you upload it somewhere like google drive? Almost all the sharing sites like dropbox are blocked by the company proxy (I’ll try to use my mobile tho).

      Thank you!!!

      • Alissa says

        I managed with the smartphone, but I see v. 13 and 18. Please, can you upload for 32bit? With the dll I can update my portable ESR firefox browser, thank you!!

      • Kooky Tommy says


        Google Drive: Maybe. I’ll check.

        Flash ESR: Adobe stopped it. Last version is V18.0.0.382 (released: 2016-10-11). Use non ESR version of Flash NPAPI.

    Information from Adobe:

    October 13, 2020

    In today’s scheduled release, we’ve updated Flash Player with important bug and security fixes.

    Starting this month, Adobe will begin periodically prompting users to uninstall Flash Player. Uninstalling Flash Player is optional, but Adobe recommends removing unused components promptly to keep our customers and their systems more secure. Please be aware that this uninstall will remove all copies of Flash Player installed and updated by Adobe, it does not remove the Flash Player provided by Google Chrome or Microsoft Windows 8 and 10 for Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer. IT Administrators can suppress these uninstall prompts by setting preferences available in the Flash Player configuration files. Full details can be found in the Flash Player Administration guide (see โ€˜Suppressing EOL Uninstall Promptsโ€™ section).

    In the last few months, Adobe installed a kill switch into flash player that checks if date is > Jan 12, it will refuse to load. I set my system time forward and was able to verify that the kill switch is in V32.0.0.433 but not in V31.0.0.153. Kooky Tommy, do you have the versions in between those 2 versions? In your dropbox I don’t see them. Thanks for great work!
