We aware of the the issue in XP systems, online installer is not working in some XP systems.
For Quick help please find offline Flashplayer installer.
Click on the following Adobe link. Go down to the bottom where it says, "Still having problems?". Click on the link for your browser.
I tried it but no success.I get download manager error. BTW- I have firefox lastest version.
I downloaded and installed the previous version to 22.214.171.124 and everything works. It appears that 209 is buggy. I will take my chances with the older version, atleast it works. Thanks
If you're downloading the offline installer posted at the bottom of the Installation problems | Flash Player | Windows page you shouldn't get a download manager error as the offline installer does not use the download manager.
Can you please post a screenshot (see The specified item was not found.) of the error you are seeing?
I had the installer error for a few months (all versions 17.x up to 126.96.36.199) both using the downloader and offline installer.
Today XP offered me version 188.8.131.52 and it worked!
What installer error are you getting with the offline installer? The online installer downloads Flash Player silently and installs it silently. This thread is for the online installer failing to download Flash Player. If you're using the offline installer, it'll be a different error since the offline installer is a complete installer and doesn't download anything in the background.
Sorry, unable to replicate the 17.x and 18-203 error.
Will try tomorrow and post the installer error.
Problem is solved with 209, though.
