Download Adobe Flash Player

Mar 4, 2013 3:22 PM

I hope someone can help me. I have tried numerous times to download the latest version of Adobe flash player without success. Every time I get an error message that says "The user does not have sufficient priveleges to install Adobe flash player".  There are no earlier versions of flash player loaded onto my computer, and I even temporarily disabled my internet security. What do I do now? This is a stand alone home computer, desktop model.

    Can you please verify that you are using an administrator level account on Windows?

    You'll need to change your account to an admin level, then try installing again.

    This page looks pretty straight forward.

    I know it says Windows 7, but it should be the same instructions for Vista.

     

    Hope this helps,

    Chris

    Can you post the contents of your flashinstall.log file?  I'd like to see what's going on.

     

    Where do I find the Flash Player installation log on Windows?

     

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Open it with notepad or your text editor of choice.  Copy it to the clipboard, then paste it (ctrl+v) to a reply in this thread.

     

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Chris....

    I am getting the same message.  I know I am in the administrator account.  I logged into the admin account on purpose because my first attempt on Chrome as a user(Admin also) and received this "the user does not have sufficient priveleges to install adobe flash player"  error message.  I tried 3 times..no luck!
