Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 patch a few days ago, called KB3132372, which fixes 19 exploits found in Adobe Flash Player for Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer. However, once this patch was released, many users have said that many of their applications are no longer working.
This is the reason why Microsoft has come now with a new patch KB3133431 in order to solve all the issues caused by the KB3132372 patch.
According to Microsoft, the new Windows 10 update patch KB3133431 solves many issues that caused the Adobe Flash Player to not correctly load in applications that are running in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer and that have Flash Player embedded.
This update addresses the issues in Windows 10 version 1511 (November update) and previous versions which also include the Windows Server version.
Adobe also released some notes on its own page, saying that it has released a new update for the Flash Player ActiveX for Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. According to Adobe, this release comes with fixes for some issues that were causing the Flash Player to not load properly the applications that have it embedded. Adobe also added that an update will also be released for Windows 10 and Windows 8 sometime soon.
Keep in mind that you will get the latest update automatically, but if you don’t want to wait, you can “force” the download by going to your Windows’s Settings->Update & Security->Windows Update. You will also need to restart your computer in order to complete the update process.
We remind you that because of all the issues with the Adobe Flash Player, there are many big companies who are migrating to HTML5. With other words, it’s just a matter of time until Adobe Flash Player will “die”.
