Flash Player ActiveX control content debugger on Windows 8

Written by: Jane D, on 2012-11-06

Trying to install the Flash Debug Player shows the following error:

The installation encountered errors: Your Microsoft Internet Explorer browser includes the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player built-in. Windows Update will inform you when new versions of the Flash Player are available. 

Is there any way to install the debugger version of the Flash Player ActiveX control on Windows 8?

Well, Adobe’s response sounds like this:

The debugger will be available for download on Microsoft’s website a few weeks after Windows 8 general availability (10/26).

Later edit:

The content debugger versions for Windows 8 (x64, x86, and RT) are available at Adobe Flash Player Support Center.
