Re: Adobe Flash Player 11.5.502.110

Got it updated over v11.4.402.265.
Why the new packages are almost x2 bigger?

They've explained the previous growth with packing both 32 and 64 versions in one package. But what is this time? What else did they include into the package? They certainly did, but that is it?

LaRRY_PEpPeR See Profile, thank you for the reference. I'm not going to watch DRM protected porn. Now both files (activex.vch and plugin.vch) are removed. I'm trying to keep my computers DRM-free.

There are two ADS files included in both of those (activex.vch and plugin.vch). I could have deleted just the ADS but I too don't do DRM stuff so I deleted both entire files not just the hidden ADS files.

It had that and another ADS but I didn't check it closely and I have deleted those files so I can't look at it now.
