Operating System :
Windows XP Professional - Service Pack 3
Norton Internet Security 2012
Web browsers :
Opera Version 12.10 (default browser)
Firefox version 16.0.2 (used occasionally)
Internet Explorer 8 (almost never used)
Flash Player version that I tried to install :
Adobe Flash Player 11.5.502.110
Installed versions of Java :
I had Flash Player (the latest version prior to 11.5.502.110) installed on my computer.
After Windows startup, Adobe tried to auto-update Flash Player. My browser opened the following page :
So I downloaded then ran the file :
During installation I got an Internet Explorer Script Error problem :
Internet Explorer Script Error
An error has occured in the script on this page
Line : 1
Char : 12948
Error : Object expected
Code : 0
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page? Yes/No
Choosing "Yes" or "No" to running scripts made no difference. The program did not install Flash Player.
I uninstalled the previous version of Flash player (using Windows Control Panel), rebooted my computer and downloaded Flash Player from Adobe's website, making sure I chose :
Step 1 - Windows 7/Vista/XP/2008/2003
Step 2 - Flash Player 11 for Other Browsers
* Not to install Google Chrome *
I had the same Internet Explorer Script Error again.
I disabled Norton Internet Security, tried to install Flash Player and got the same error again.
I don't know why I'm getting an Internet Explorer Script Error if my Flash Player download is specifically for other browsers than Internet Explorer.
My Internet Explorer / Internet Options / Security settings are set to Medium-high default level.
Can anyone help?
Download and run the offline installer from http://helpx.adobe.com/content/help/en/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player- windows.html#main-pars_header
P.S. you shouldn't have multiple versions of Java installed; I suggest you uninstall the two 1.6 versions.
Thanks for your help, Pat. I'm grateful for you letting me know that running multiple versions of Java is not recommended.
