Need help finding standalone flash 6 player/viewer

I've upgraded to macromedia flash 6 for my IE & Netscape browsers but I've been unablle to locate a standalone 6.0 viewer/player I can use to open saved swf files.

I have a flash player 5.0 that automatically opens when I click on older swf files on my hard drive but I need to upgrade to one that can do the same with flash 6.0 swf files.

This is bugging the heck out of me. Tried the macromedia site, download.com, kazaa etc with no success. Any help pointing me to a copy would be appreciated.

According to the Macromedia forums:

You can simply download the stand-alone flash player direct from Macromedia.
That way you'll get the LATEST flash Player (not the buggy one that came
with Flash MX).

http://www.macromedia.com/support/flash/downloads.html

Get the player update from that page. This is a full version of various
players (release, debugging etc), not just an update as the name may imply
Here is a direct link to the file:

Thanks Blade. While I really didn't want to download the whole Flash MX program, the real standalone viewer I wanted (it's only 800 kb) was included.
