In today's release, we've updated Flash Player ActiveX for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.  This release addresses a problem with Flash Player improperly loading in applicaitons that have it embedded.  We are working with Microsoft to provide this update to Windows 8 and Windows 10 users as soon as possible.

Current Flash Player customers who have enrolled in the "Allow Adobe to install updates (recommended)" update mechanism will be automatically updated to the latest version of Flash Player over the next 24 hours.

Flash Player for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 has been updated to fix application issues. A patch for Windows 8 (probably Windows 8.1) and Windows 10 is in progress an will be released soon by Microsoft.
