Flash Player not recognized in IE

Feb 10, 2011 3:44 PM

I'm using Windows 7 64-bit. Just recently updated IE8 to IE9 to try to fix the problem. Shockwave flash object is not showing up in manage addons.

The about page shows a white box with a red x in it.

 

I've checked for bit killer.

I've also done the following:

  • Additional information

     

    If Flash Player 10.1 is not working as expected, try

    • updating the device drivers for your graphics\video card to the latest version
    • disabling hardware acceleration (Flash Player Settings, Display panel)
    • FPhwacc.png

     

    Please do not

    • ask questions in this topic; open a new topic in the forum, or post in a topic with exactly the same problem.

    Hello,

     

    Are you using 32bit browser of 64bit browser ??

     

    Also did you tried the lastest Flash Player  10.2   (http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash _player_ax.exe)

     

    Please check in a different browser as well !!

     

    Thanks

    Hello,

     

    Try that and if that does'nt resolve your issue

     

    Try to uninstall Flash Player from the uninstaller

     

    Install a fresh copy of Flash Player

     

    Hope that helps !!

     

    Thanks

    Hello,

     

    Download the uninstaller for Flash Player from here : http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash _player.exe

     

    Run it and install a fresh copy from that same installer which I gave you in earlier post

     

    Thanks

    Vikram

    Hello,

     

    It seems its an IE issue, might be the upgrade IE8 -> IE9

     

    As firefox works on new account !!

    Hi, Were you using the Administrator Account when Uninstalling/Installing? Did you receive any error messages?

     

    What Anti-Virus/Spyware program(s) do you have Installed?

     

    Flash Player works thru the browsers, so perhaps an update from IE8 to IE9 has caused a glitch. There are a couple of other things that should be done when Uninstalling also.

     

     

     

    Thanks,

    Hi, I think there are glitches with this Forum, it showed no replies to your post and there were no replies except your first one when I replied. I know there were Server issues the night before. After I posted it showed on the front page as only one reply!!

    Just wanted to say I am having the exact same issue, in IE only.  64 bit Win7, using IE 8.    I have also tried everything in the kb, flash player support pages, etc.  (32 bit version of IE, disabled f-prot, malware bytes, and any other mem. residents, set security settings to med., scripting enabled,  proper uninstall, reboot, reinstall (automated and manual), reboot, etc)

     

    Just like the OP, unistall and install seem flawless, but no add-on shows up..

     

    EDIT:  Sorry, I missed the OPs comment asking not to repost if having the exact same issue.  Doh!

    Did you also check for the "kill-bit", as the OP did (http://forums.adobe.com/message/3432049#3432049)?  If you have it set, don't fix it manually; I will give you an easier & safer method.

    Hi Pat, I know you are in here somewhere, LOL This forum has been acting up all day and part of yesterday. I reported it and they are going to work on it.

     

    Now maybe when I send this message yours will show up, that happened on another thread today. The threads aren't registering the posts either, so we have several issues going on.

                        EDIT   Ok, my reply to myself triggered your post Pat. The Forum Ghost at work again:-)

    Yes.  No kill-bit set.  It's not something simple, which is why I was relieved to see others experiencing the same issue.

    Hi Tw0tone, Glad that worked for you!! Thanks for marking your thread as answered also. I know that procedure was like having to fly to New York from Atlanta to get to California, but you got there

     

     

     

    Now if we can get the Flash Forum working properly, maybe things will get back to normal:-)

     

     

     

    Thanks,

    For Uze DaFarce:

     

    If you follow that procedure that Tw0tone just posted, you will probably need to make a couple of adjustments.

     

    Let me know.

     

     

    Thanks,

    Hi Tw0tone, I'll try again and hope my post goes thru this time! Thanks for marking your thread as answered. I know the procedure was like flying to New York from Atlanta to get to California, but you got there

     

     

    This is to Uze DaFarce in case you didn't get the post I sent you. Before you try this procedure you will need to make an adjustment, to let me know.

     

     

     

    Thanks,

                             EDIT: I know browsers freeze, but I guess the Flash Forum is freezing also I see my latest post brought up the other two.

                             Do we have a Spam filter? LOL

    Yeah, this forum was really having troubles.  I checked the site when I got the email notifications, but the last few posts (including solution) were missing, and I didn't catch it cause there were new posts from the previous time I had checked.

     

    I am excited to try this, but it will be a while before I can as I was helping my sister fix her laptop, and after days of trying to resolve this, I finally had to give it back to her.  I will fix it next time we get together, until then she's going to have to do without flash in IE.

    Hi Uze, nice to hear from you. The Forum has certainly been having problems!! Yesterday it appeared to be working better, just hope it stays up.

     

    On the procedure that is listed here, you will need to Disable your Anti-Virus/Spyware programs since I'm sure they are different than Tw0tone's.

     

    Just be sure to follow the instructions carefully, they are all there for a purpose.

     

     

     

    Too bad about your Sister's laptop, tell her to Register here and start a thread. Each computer system is different.

     

     

     

     

    Thanks,

    This procedure worked like a champ!  I had tried all of this before except reverting to version 9 and back, so that's definately the key.  Thanks so much for the help!
