Need Flash Player to play SWF file

Last Modified: 2013-12-07
Hello experts,

I don't know much about Flash Files (.swf). One of our users has an SWF file, which he wants to play. I need a Flash Player for Windows that is capable of playing .swf files. He tried downloading Adobe Flash Player, but as far as I know that is a plug-in for a web browser enabling a user to view online flash videos. This file however is sitting on his desktop.

Is there a way to play this file, if so what needs to be done.

Thank you in advance.
