12% download timeout on Adobe Flash Player

Jul 28, 2011 3:55 PM

If you google '12% download timeout on adobe' you will see that a few people including myself are getting this now.

 

Any ideas what is causing it and how it can be rectified ?

 

It's causing me loads of problems because I cant get into any websites that use Flash Player making my PC as useful as a chocolate teapot for accessing the internet.

 

I've tried uninstalling,installing until I'm blue in the face but it's always 12% and that's you're lot, its not being installed.

 

Got to be something missing from our PC's  for me and the other people getting this.

 

I have a Dell Dimension 5000,windows XP and IE8.

 

Help please.

    If you google this forum, most likely you will find the alternate download link http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/fp_distribution3.html

     

    Did you try this?

    Try disabling your antivirus (guard and webguard, I use Avira). It worked for me.

    Just ran into this problem on my network.  On the page with the yellow "download" link or before, hit the compatability button on the top (looks like a broken page).  Then hit download after it finishes re-loading.  My guess is that they haven't updated their downloader to work with the features of the new updates of the new browsers.

    Hi,

     

       Since the problem is getting all of the download just go to http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/142/tn_14266.html  and download the appropriate zip file of the version you want and then install it. Be careful to use the readme file to decide which files to install for your operating system and browser.

    The way to fix it for you is the open IE(Internet Explorer)

    Then on the top right corner you see Tools,click on that then choose Internet Options

    Then Connection tab then click LAN settings

    Lastly Uncheck Automatically detect settings

    Then click ok

    Now GO back to mozzila firefox and download it

    I tried it and works for my computer it said use to say timeout at 7% or 47%

    Now its 7% then 8% and onn.

    ENJOY

     

    If it works you can brag it to others.

    Thank you so much!  My attempts at downloading the Adobe Flash Player kept timing out at 17% to 47% - and when I made the IE change you recommend to turn off automatic detection of LAN settings, the installation worked first time.  I am so grateful!
