How to Install Adobe Flash Player to Open SWF Files
Flash player is no longer supported or updated by Adobe. They no longer provide Flash Player installation files. Since there are no further security updates, major web browsers no longer allow playing SWF files either.
But you can still use SWF.max Player to view Flash files and play Flash games! You will need to manually install Adobe Flash component. Instead of being installed system-wide, it will be installed locally just for SWF.max Player. This way your web browsing will remain secure and you can enjoy playing locally downloaded SWF files.
TL;DR: obtain a copy of Flash.ocx ActiveX component (version 22.214.171.1241 or older) and place it in "C:\Program Files (x86)\SWF.max\Media\Binary" folder.
