IE10 on Windows 7, which Microsoft has pledged to release as a preview by mid-November, will not include an integrated version of Flash, but will rely on the traditional plug-in. Still, it will, like other browsers, receive future updates on Patch Tuesday.
Adobe also said that it would, if necessary, issue emergency updates outside Microsoft's schedule to quash "zero-day" bugs.
Windows 8 and Windows RT users can obtain today's Flash update for IE10 via the Windows Update service, while others can either download the revised plug-in from Adobe's website or use the Flash updating tool.
