    Windows 8 RTM (Retinas taking damage...)


    I think you mean the RP/RTM. CP does not have flash built in. I've tried to remove and/or update flash on RTM, but I can't seem to make it work. Maybe someone will come up with a hack soon.

    Hello 0080900,

    Sorry, but you will not be able to update Flash Player through the Adobe website as before with IE10. Instead, the Flash Player updates will sent down through Windows Update now. It should be coming down soon though according to the article below.
