Check Adobe Flash version Internet Explorer (Active-X) on Server 2012/2016 and Windows 8.1/10

Hi there,

Just a very short post, because sometimes you’re search queries on Google don’t match the result you are looking for. I was looking for a way to detect which version of Adobe Flash is native installed on clients Windows Server (which happens to be Server 2012R2) and what it’s current patch level would be.

If you click this link (it point’s to Adobe’s website) and click on the button: “Check Now”, it will give you a result of which version of Adobe Flash is installed for Internet Explorer

checknow

After hitting “Check now” you will see the following result:

If you want to know which other versions of Adobe Flash player are installed for example for Google’s Chrome (PPAPI)  and Mozilla’s Firefox (NPAPI), then type in your start screen: appwiz.cpl which will bring you directly to the installed programs menu of the control panel.

Cheers! Rens
