I tried downloading the latest version of Flash Player, and I could never get the window to come up to download. When I tried to troubleshoot, I checked the system requirements, only to discover that my system isn't up to the requirements of theFlash 11.7. Using Win XP SP3, 1.5 GHz processor, 256 MB RAM (yes, it's old!) and the most recent version of Flash prior to the current release. I'm wondering if I should uninstall the Flash I have and install an older version (and if so, which version). Thanks!
Should still work fine on your system. Regarding your download problem, try the offline installer(s) from http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html#mai n-pars_header
Thank you, Pat. I will try that.
