Flash 11 Installation Problem

Mar 13, 2012 3:29 PM

I m trying to install Flash Player 11 in a PC with windows XP Pro SP3. Everything looks ok, but when i go to youtube only black screen. Right click gives only "About Flash 11" option. Same with IE 8 and Google Chrome. With Mozilla its ok cause of HTML5. When i try to install flash in Mozilla it cant, and says to try manualy (download and install as i ve done before).

 

Disabled Anti-virus, checked for malware and virus, reset cache, history etc, went to Flash player advanced settings (throught Control Panel), done ALL steps with installing-reinstalling everything. Checked Permissions, addons and plugins, same story. Any other idea except reinstall windows?

    For the video issue, does it make any difference if you toggle hardware acceleration off?

     

    How do I disable or enable hardware acceleration?

     

    Use this installer link to install on Firefox:

    Can you provide the full error message, or better yet, a screenshot of that message?

     

    For IE8, see http://forums.adobe.com/thread/885448

    Did you check that the Shockwave Flash add-on is enabled in Internet Explorer?

    The drivers for the Intel G33 are pretty old, so the logical step would be to disable hardware acceleration.  But since you cannot go to local settings, this is unfortunately not possible.  (Pity that the native control panel does not allow that setting!)

     

    Two things I would try if I were to encounter your situation:

    I am having the same issue, but only in Mozilla Firefox. I received the message a few days ago saying my flashplayer needed to be updated, and did that. Now the plug-in is not working. I tried installing it, but see what happens:
