I can't find Flash Player download link which will give me the full EXE/MSI file, not the tiny downloader which downloads data from the internet.

What's the proper download site for this?

Download Adobe Flash Player 16 / 13 / 11.2 full offline standalone installers (MSI/EXE) for Internet Explorer / other browsers:

I've contacted Adobe because I was completely unable to install Flash with the 900kb installer-downloaders which always flood me with strange errors (and delete themselves from the run location! so you can't launch the installer-downloader after failure, have to re-download it), and they sent me this link.

For a long time I've been downloading the latest version of the full installers for the Adobe Flash Player with the FileHippo software update service. – martineau Jun 14 '12 at 16:14
This question was not about debug version, but thank you for sharing a link. – jakub.g Feb 17 '13 at 11:31
BTW, the debug version of standalone flashplayers are available at: – ryenus Mar 21 '14 at 10:45
This adobe “help” page also has the links at the bottom, and as of Dec 2014 those are working. (interestingly still domains. What is dead will never die™... =) – Frank N Dec 13 '14 at 9:45
This page and the download links will be decommissioned on January 22nd, 2016. the site now says. – n611x007 Dec 6 '15 at 6:11

For a long time, I've been taking the offline installers from this page: Installation problems for Windows 7 and older (already mentioned in a comment by Fronker).

The links are always up-to-date, and it lets me get all plugin architectures (as of today ActiveX, NPAPI and PPAPI).

Extra clafifiction: The Links are under “still having problems” – Frank N Jan 29 '15 at 19:14
thank you. I knew about the projectors, but this is exactly what I was looking for :D . I think that this deserves more votes - or at least to get its own question. This is valuable information. – Wyatt8740 Apr 2 '15 at 20:35

If you download the flash player cab file for Microsoft System Center/SCCM, extract the xml file from the it, then you'll see the msi file listed in the xml file. There's a link for the activex installer and also the Mozilla/firefox/netscape plugin.

Since Adobe is going to decommission the Distribution page on March 1st, 2016, here's another method that I hope will still work:

On the standard installation page the "Install Now" button links to the download page, you should append &standalone=1 to the end, then it'll let you download the normal standalone offline installer.

P.S. Don't forget to disable "Optional offer" before copying the link.
