    Incomplete installation of downloaded flash player update


      A required file (C:Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\flahplayer.xpt:5) could not be written while I was installing downloaded flash player update in Windows 7 due to insufficient permissions. how do I get sufficient permissions?

          Administrative permissions are necessary so that the Adobe Flash Player installer can access the Windows system registry and the following folder:

          C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash folder for a 32-bit machine

          C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash folder for a 64-bit machine


          In Windows Vista® and Windows 7®, regardless of your permissions, you can run any application as an administrator. To run an application as an administrator, right-click the filename and select Run As Administrator. Provide the administrator ID and password when prompted.

          If you need more help, contact your system administrator.
