Flash Player

Jul 1, 2008 10:10 AM

For the past two days I have been trying to down load the free Flash Player to my computer. I go through the process, it tells me it has successfully downloaded, but I neer get the little movie that the download says I will get. When we try to open www.nick.com and other sites, it says that we need to download Flash Player. We have done this over and over. Everything worked fine last week but not now. I uninstalled a previous version as I was told to do in the troubleshooting section and changed settings as instructed. Please help

    I discovered, by searching other forums for help, that my using "Add/Remove" programs wasn't a sufficient way to remove the old version of Flash Player. At least not on my system. I was sent to the following URL, where I uninstalled Flash Player, then finally was able to sucessfully reinstall, and now it works:

    I am also having an issue installing flash.
    I have done everything listed.
    I have used the uninstaller, I have re-installed.
    I have gotten the subin-acl download from Microsoft and followed the directions.
    I have gone through my registry a million times I have no denied access, however I can't view the image of the registry that you show.
    I do know that when my install stops is stops at register flash9focx. So if that is a help, please tell me how to fix this. I use several flash websites professionally.

    I have been trying for 3 days to get the download for flashplayer to even open. It won't. I did uninstall my old version of flashplayer using the web page in the forum, but that didn't help. I have contacted Adobe about the problem with the site. If you have any suggestions, I would welcome them. At this point I have no Flash Player at all.

    Thank you

    My installation was also sucessfull.
    I did however navigate to CNN.com and it did not recognize my viewer.
    As long as I can see flash files made by colleagues then I can live with this, if not I will be back on the forums.

    Happy Fourth of July

    okay, i have an XP
    i USED to use youtube for guitar and stuff like that
    and then about 2 months ago it was saying i have to install the "latest" flashplayer...
    so i click the link to take me to the installer
    and it doesn't bring up the yellow bar at the top or anything???
    like all it does is a box comes up saying troubleshooting 19166...
    and i so know what that is???
    i've tried EVERYTHING to try to get it to download for months now
    anything from security as high as it can go to no security at all and still the same problem?
    idk if my computer has viruses or what??
    but i really need to know how to get the flashplayer back
    ( i tried the "answer" to this and it made no difference )
    someone please answer my players =P

    I've read all the threads about Flash Player and I'm in the same boat. I've uninstalled again today using the link suggested as the ANSWER.. Why doesn't an Adobe specialist answer all of your questions.. My experience is that is says I've successfully installed Adobe v.9,0,124.0 but when I go to my bank's site it's STILL SAYING Requires Adobe Flash Player.. I don't understand why Adobe's not helping us.

    I am running Windows XP and cannot load Flash Player? Tried everything posted here? Adobe is no help? You would think they would care that you can't run Flash?

    I don't know what happened. I had gone to another site looking at a different program to open this same type of file. It was called IrfanView on web site www.irfanview.com. I downloaded it but it still didn't seem to be working. When I tried to view the earlier file that had been sent to me, all of a sudden the Adobe installer appeared and Adobe FlashPlayer was downloaded and I could view the file. I checked one other file I had been trying to view and I was also able to view it too. Earlier I had also downloaded an older version (flashplayer9r115_win) of Adobe at a site called download.oldapps.

    I am have the same problem. I've been trying to download for a while now, but it still wont work. The movie wont popup when i download, but a little box that says "installation complete" with some numbers does. I see a little red F popup where the movie is supposed to be, but then a yellow bar like the ActiveX bar pops up and it say that it wont let the site use ActiveX in an unsafe way, and the Red F goes away. I found something to fix the problem, but what the thing told me to do doesn't work. I'm using windows XP

    Finally I got the stupid flashplayer problem fixed. Follow the instructions at the top of this forum. Unistall the installer and then go back to the install page, i know that this sound familiar, and reinstall this program again. Hope this helps.

    Has anyone figured this out or gotten an answer that works? I am going out of my mind. Everyone is describing exactly what is happening to me. I do not have Vista at work or at home, but both systems are doing the exact same thing. I'm really frustrated.

    THE ANSWER ON THIS THREAD WORKS!!! The missing link is that you have to REBOOT after you run the uninstall. Mine is working!!! Amen!

    I have been able to get flash installed.

    In the thread above download the unistaller and the installer.
    Uninstall and then reboot.
    Don't just double click the installer extract the .exe file and right click on it and choose run as. Choose to run as the administrator it may ask for a password enter it. It will install. Now reboot.
    This worked for me and I have done everything include f&*k around with my registry.
