I've checked the webpage and follow it to download directly to download from Flash Player for ActiveX (Internet Explorer), but it can't be installed, it says it isn't the latest version. Today, I've tried to download from http://get.adobe.com/cn/flashplayer/ again, but the installation said the newer version has been installed, but I havn't intall flash for IE, I only installed it for other browsers.
I suggest that you try a clean install, as described in http://forums.adobe.com/thread/928315
then download and run both offline installers from http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html#mai n-pars_header
Dear Pat and Mylenium,
I have tried everything you are suggesting. I have gone through the process multiple times. Nothing is working to get my flash operating again.Have also checked all settings, internet options, deleted old flash files, rebooted computer and browser, enabled settings like java and scripting, uninstalled and reinstalled java to latest, did same with shockwave, Im sure there is more but I cant remember. Ive done it all.
the only time flash works is when I am in Chrome because it is built in.
However when I open IE8 (the highest you can have with XP) and firefox, all test screens are blank. They do not show the test movie.
The main problem I have is I often use Yahoo Messenger and that is now seriously affected. I cannot see the text that I have typed in for all of my messages. Apparently that depends on the flash player as well.
I cannot hardly perform any of the instructions while using IE8 since menus are not clickable and sometimes things do not come up visually. Not even the Adobe website works at times due to not having the Flash installed. Therefore I have been using firefox to get the offline downloads (uninstaller, installer) and manage to uninstall successfully. Then when I reinstall it says that it has been done successfully but there is no evidence of this. Flash still not working.
I cannot see where it would be "working" after the install and cannot find it in my windows task manager processes. However I do see that one of the processes is the install program: install_flashplayer11x32ax_mssd_aih.exe
Please please help with this. I am quite computer savvy and cannot remedy this problem. I desperately need assistance to get flash successfully reinstalled.
Try the latest Flash Player 11.6.602.168 that was released today; use the offline installers from the link that I posted earlier.
Im sorry but unfortunately I still have the same issue. Everything appeared to have gone well with the new installation but the end result was no flash player identified on my computer. Any other ideas? Thank you for your help.
When I click on your link it opens the default browser- Chrome, and yes I can see the flash animation. However that is because Chrome uses the plugin. The major issue I have is when I try to open your link in IE or firefox. In the case of using IE browser or Firefox browser the answer would be NO, I cannot see the flash animation.
Is the Shockwave Flash object add-on enabled in Internet Explorer?
Is the Shockwave Flash plugin enabled in Firefox?
What files do you have in C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash ?
