Actually, no, they can't. Currently, Flash Player AutoUpdate is an Op-in option.  It is not
mandatory, so, you can run your Flash Player 11.1 for a long as you want, just as you can
run Windows XP on that 'ol laptop.  So even if future versions of Flash player made updating
mandatory, the current versions are not, so all you need is a current version installer and
you can run your 11.1 Flash Player for as long as you want, which runs the Flex 4.6 content
just fine.
