    i have the same problem with install_flashplayer11x32_mssd_aih.exe

     

    im using  firefox  windows vista 32 bit

     

    when i upgraded it  it was crashing  a few times a day  i had to send crash report  and reload

     

    then it would completly  stop working i would have to unstall it then reinstall  it would kinda work again

     

    yesterday i did the same thing  after 2 days with no problems

     

    now  it downloads  when i try to open the zip nothing happens

     

    then i tried to download it with windows exploder  and  it has stoped working every page crashes

     

     

    today i uninstalled  firefox  reinstalled it and no change     

     

     

    how can i fix this

    http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html#fp10.3

     

    i downloaded a version from there and its working          

     

    i think the new version has a lot of problems  and should be deleated and revised

    Try right clicking on the file, clicking on "Properties" and then "Unblock". This particular Flash installer needs to be unblocked for whatever reason.

    i did what you said  mdanehy  and it did indeed  upload it again

     

    however it crashed  3 minute later    adobe flashplayer 11.4r402 has stoped working

    a problem caused the program to stop working  correctley  windows close the program  and notify you if solutions are available

     

     

    then another page opened  saying

    Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is a security feature that can help prevent damage to your computer from viruses and other security threats. Harmful programs can try to attack Windows by attempting to run (also known as execute) code from system memory locations reserved for Windows and other authorized programs. These types of attacks can harm your programs and files.

    DEP can help protect your computer by monitoring your programs to make sure that they use system memory safely. If DEP notices a program on your computer using memory incorrectly, it closes the program and notifies you.

    Did DEP stop the installation or was it Flash Player itself that crashed? You can try reinstalling and see if it happens again.

    Also try running the official uninstaller and deleting all the contents in the Windows/Syswow64/Macromed directory to make sure that Flash is completely uninstalled and then reinstall.

    Try adding "ProtectedMode=0" (without the quotes) to the mms file in the windows/syswow64/macromed directory. You may have to do it within an elevated Notepad, otherwise Vista won't let you edit the file. Click the Windows start button, type in "Notepad", and right click Notepad and run as administrator. Then open and edit the mms file within that.

     

    The protected mode in Flash Player is known to cause crashes.

    My suggestion, if you don't want to try the protectedmode suggestion and you continue to run into problem with 11.4, is to revert to 10.3.183.23.

     

    How do I revert to a previous version of Flash Player?

    Don't give up on the newer version just yet.

     

    Run Notepad as administrator, click "File" and then "Open" and then go into c:\windows\syswow64\macromed\flash. Now on the bottom right where it says "Text Documents" change that to "All Files", or you won't see mms. Then you can edit and save mms.

    Well, it's "notepad" not "notebook".

     

    But I'm glad the older version is working for you.

    just an update  in case any one is interested  since i reverted back to the older version that Chris Campbell   sent me the link to

     

    i have not had one crash report  every sight is working properly    i have been streaming  all day  editing ect

     

    and  my  son had some online  program  running some silly war game  constant

     

    and its working perfect 

     

    so my suggestion  to people who have had the same problem as me dont install the new version again  stay with the old version

    do not go near the new version  its a mess dose not work

     

    stay on the old version  its perfect
