Can you give a little bit more detailed symptoms than just "failed"?
Also, what is your display adapter, driver version & date?
With regards to "failed", there will be no audio, no video, no functionality, just a blank screen. This will happen for anything that requires flash: youtube, etc.
Display adapter is Mobile Interl(R) 4 Series Chipset Family
Driver version 188.8.131.522
Can you try a clean install, as follows:
- Download the current uninstaller
- Close all browser windows and run the uninstaller
- Restart Windows
- Delete all remaining files and folders located in the following directories. (tip: copy and paste these paths into the path bar in an Explorer window)
- C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash (if it exists)
- %appdata%\Adobe\Flash Player
- %appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player
- Verify that the file “FlashPlayerCPLApp.cpl” in C:\Window\system32\ for 32 bit systems or C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ if you are using a 64 bit system, has been deleted
- Download and run the offline installers
If the problem persists, can you go to http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect and check if there are newer device drivers available for your display adapter?
Followed through with the clean install and also updated the device driver. It's up and running now.
Great fix, thanks Pat.
Great; glad it was so easy!
I just went through a long song and dance trying to get Adobe Flash up and running again.
My son has a new computer, and after only 4 days of use, some update came along and changed something, and he tried to update//install flash so that he could play YouTube videos. He followed the instructions, and things blew up, with the "stuck at 47% problem".
I came along and made several attempts, but didn't fare any better. Googled, and discovered the information that you had put up in this forum, and made 3 more failed attempts, in spite of following your directions... :-(
Then, this morning I had a flash (sic :-) ), and went and looked for failed 32 bit stuff... And discovered some, and cleaned it out. The next install of the 64 bit went fine.
I am suggesting that you add instructions to clean out both the 32 bit system files and the 64 bit systems...
Thanks, wasn't fun, but I am glad to be done,
For what it's worth, the original poster on this thread had said he was on a 32 bit system, so I suspect Pat modified the instructions a little bit for 32 bit. The FAQ for this does cover both 32 and 64 bit
Regardless, very glad to hear you were able to figure it out and get Flash Player installed!
P.S. the reason why I (and Carl as well) place the instructions directly into the forum topics, rather than referring to the FAQ, is that the FAQ entry does not contain the download links to the offline installers. We know why these links are not there, but we need to supply these links, as most users with FP install problems are more likely to succeed with the offline installers.
Hello. I'm having the same problem as Fox was. I've tried turning off my antivirus, a clean install, and a clean install with my antivirus off, but it still times out at 47% every time. I'm running Windows 7 64-bit. Display adapter is Intel(R) HD Graphics Family. Version 184.108.40.2063 dated 4/4/2011. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
Could you please download Flash Player from the following link: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html#mai n-pars_header
After downloading, close all browsers and double-click the downloaded file.
Your 32 bit uninstaller link gives 404 error message. Can you update?
Your offline installers gives 404 error message. Can you update?
Please don't use these old links! This topic is now closed.
