12% Timeout Downloading Adobe Flash Player 10.3

If you are having problem when downloading Flash Player 10.3 and it stops at 12% and timeout in about 10 seconds, then you are not alone. I do not know the exact reason, but it could be related to the redirected download link to *.macromedia.com when you actually trace the logs. In any case, the temporary solution is to download the full installer and run it directly instead of going through their downloader.

Grab the full installation at:
http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/fp_distribution3.html

However, if your downloader is still having issue downloading from the above link, it could be that somehow *.macromedia.com actually does not work for you at all. In this case, I had created the backup links below.

For Internet Explorer
http://www.fileserve.com/file/PcAg8sC/install_flash_player_10_active_x.exe
For plugins browsers (anything else besides IE):
http://www.fileserve.com/file/TM6yYd8/install_flash_player_10.exe

However, I strongly suggest you do not use the above link unless the latest is still v10.3.183.5 because you could end up not using the latest version and you know how bad Adobe Flash Player is when it comes to security.

Hope this helps you. If it does, do leave me a comment so that I know.

One of your links jump to a file saving site, which states that the file i attempted to access has been removed by the uploader and it was in breach of parameters. Also, the distibutor download link you gave wont work either, at least for me. I'm sorry to say, no good.

Go to the official site to download.
