You need Adobe Reader or if you have it, upgrade it. This reads PDF files.

Flash player is a different thing and does not read PDF files.
I use PDFExchange on one machine and Foxit Reader on another.

Flash has nothing to do with PDFs. Adobe is simply a software company that makes several different applications.
