        Microsoft Stream requires Adobe flash. My job requires to watch a training video that is due by end of week. It is on Microsoft Stream which requires Adobe flash. Company IT said that can not help with home computer which is no a company computer. The office is close and not allowing people into office. Does any one know how to remove the Adobe Flash removal KB and reinstall flash on Windows 1o Home version?


        Otherwise, I will have to try to get into the office to watch the training in the office which has Windows 7 either with permission or without permission hoping that will be forgiven if take the required training.

        Training is required for a huge project that client mentioned. All coworkers are trying to figure out way to take it……Any help will be great.

        Apparently Microsoft Stream only needs Flash for IE11 on Windows 7.

        On Windows 10 or 8.1, Chrome or Edge or even IE11 should be fine:

        IE 11 on Windows 7 using HTML5 [?] (Explanations in 2nd and 4th replies.)

        Given what @b has said above, since you’re working from home, is there any way for you to use another browser besides Internet Explorer for Microsoft Streams? That may very well solve your problems due to Flash no longer being supported at all by Adobe.

        You need to find a tactful way to tell your employer to stop using technology that’s no longer supported, especially since Flash has traditionally been a favorite target of bad actors to compromise your computer and/or your personal information on it.

        As @b has suggested, go to the MS Streams site and look at which browsers they do support and try using one of the others they support instead of Internet Explorer.
