    HELP - IE Flash Player Update KB3049508 Disappeared


    Unbelievable........I went to install this update a few minutes ago, guess what, it has disappeared. I have the new updates to install but somehow the Flash Player update as part of the 4/15 downloads has disappeared! Now what do I do to get it back so I can download? I also checked to see if it was automatically downloaded, but it's not on my list of installed updates.

    Flash player version check

    To update manually go to https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player...windows-8.html and at the bottom are the KB flash player update links from Microsoft.

    Well, sorry to say, but that didn't work. The update they had was KB3044132, which is the update for March 11, 2015, which has already been downloaded. That site had no information for KB3049508. I did make a post on Windows Community, but have not heard anything back as yet.

    SUCCESS AT LAST I visited so many places to get help and finally hit the right place......but I can't remember the site....how pathetic is that!!!! I finally was able to download and install from Microsoft.com, etc., etc. I know that I went to Microsoft.com earlier today to try to find the download I wanted, but I couldn't find it.....why, I don't know. I'm exhausted!

    Well, it's been downloaded and so far no problems and I better not have any LOL

    I'm shutting down now and need to get some important personal stuff done.
