I have an older Dell Dimension E521. It recently crashed and I had to restore to factory settings. I downloaded Adobe Flash Player for Windows XP but when I try to install a message comes up and says "Failed to initialize" and shows a 50% sign. Any ideas why this would be happening?
Moving this discussion to the Installing Flash Player forum.
Download the 32-bit offline installer from http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html#ins tall_in_a_firewall_proxy_server_environment and save it to disk, then close all browser windows and run the downloaded installer.
