Adobe seems to be protecting itself. I tried your link and was told that you can only download from the Adobe site. The link given was the new version. Back to your site, scrolled further down and found downloads for much older versions(17)--still only a year old so I tried a couple of them. Incredimai kept telling me I needed to install (or finish installing?) Flash. I rebooted, still didn't work. I tripped into an Archive of old versions https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb ... html#Flash
Player archives . I have no idea how I got there. They are all zip files and every one I tried would start instaalling once unzupped and then stop with a message saying there was an error in the file and to contact the developer. Well, we know how well that's going to work.
So I've reinstalled the current version. As far as I can tell, it's only the window that's not working. I can access old mail files and I'm receiving e-mails, so I guess I'll wait and see what the powers that be come up with.
BTW does anyone know a Spell Checker that works here? This is the first phpBB that ieSpell hasn't worked in for me.
