I have installed Flash Player several times & it always says it was successful, but when I need it, it says I have to install it. It's not listed in my Programs but it is showing up in the Control Panel under Programs that can be uninstalled.
Flash Player is not a program, just a browser plug-in.
Well, that explains why it's not in Programs! So now what?
What is your operating system & version?
What is your web browser?
Can you see the Flash animation at http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/find-version-flash-player.html ?
