When I try to download/install Flash Player, the page says "preparing installation", but the download dialog box never appears before "preparing installation" disappears. I somehow did a complicated work around by following directions on this website to get Flash Player installed. Since then, everytime I started/restarted my computer, Adobe would say that a new version of Flash Player was available. But the "new version" was the CURRENT version!
I have now uninstalled Flash Player and would like to download/install it using the normal method. Could someone please help me with this?
Thanks in advance for any help offered.
What is your operating system & web browser?
I apologize for the delay in responding, but I did not recieve an email notification of your reply.
I use IE8 on Windows Vista Home Premium.
Since my last post, I have installed Flash using the work around, and have not had the problem of being prompted to download/install a version which I already have.
It would be nice to know, though, why the download won't work from the normal download page.
I don't know why that is; I can see the standard download page normally.
If you encounter that problem again, use the offline installer from http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html#mai n-pars_header
