8/9/2011 – If you’re having trouble installing Adobe Flash and getting error: Corrupt Content From Reliable Source, then click here
Rebooted a machine today and when I logged in as Admin it tried to update the Adobe Flash player from 10.3.181.14 to the latest version 10.3.181.26 and failed to update.
So I tried installing from their website through the Adobe Download Manager, but that didn’t work either, just errored out. Lots of troubleshooting later, I figured out a way to time it so that the update installs:
- Open Internet Explorer and goto http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer
- Either check or uncheck the Google toolbar addon and then click DOWNLOAD NOW button.
- When it prompts to install the Adobe Download Manager, allow it to install and it will bring up the status window where you can see the download/install progress of the Flash Player update.
- As that is downloading (depends on network speed) you should see the regular Adobe Flash Player update window come up and ask you to install the update.
- When that appears, you need to very quickly close the Download Manager (answer Yes when it asks you if you’re sure you want to quit).
- Then use the regular Flash updater program to install the latest update.
- Check the Flash Player link from the Control Panel and click on Advanced tab to see which ActiveX version is installed. Should be the latest (10.3.181.26 as of this posting).
